Ruth Rendell was an exceptional crime writer, and will be remembered as a legend in her own lifetime. Her groundbreaking debut novel, From Doon With Death, was first published in 1964 and introduced the reader to her enduring and popular detective, Inspector Reginald Wexford, who went on to feature in twenty-four of her subsequent novels. With worldwide sales of approximately 20 million copies, Rendell was a regular Sunday Times bestseller. Her sixty bestselling novels include police procedurals, some of which have been successfully adapted for TV, stand-alone psychological mysteries, and a third strand of crime novels under the pseudonym Barbara Vine. Very much abreast of her times, the Wexford books in particular often engaged with social or political issues close to her heart. Rendell won numerous awards, including the Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger for 1976's best crime novel with A Demon in My View; a Gold Dagger award for Live Flesh in 1986 and the Sunday Times Literary Award in 1990. In 2013 she was awarded the Crime Writers' Association Cartier Diamond Dagger for sustained excellence in crime writing. In 1996 she was awarded the CBE and in 1997 became a Life Peer. Ruth Rendell died in May 2015. Her final novel, Dark Corners, is scheduled for publication in October 2015.From School Library Journal:
YA A collection of 11 short gems by a master of suspense. Rendell's stories quickly shift from an innocuous beginning to quirky action and a horrible finale. The commonplace English settings provide contrast for the author's far-from-ordinary characters. For example, a young actor, encouraged by his mother, spends increasing amounts of time dressed in a wolf costume, to his fiancee's misfortune. In another story, a man returns to England after many years abroad, still obsessed with his wife's desertion 40 years earlier. He approaches her home and glimpses a woman who appears not to have aged, and a chilling ending is in store. Another character, an elderly lady, is fond of saying that her friends are beginning to ``go funny''; readers are about to see how ``funny'' she herself has become. Finely crafted and literate, these tales, like Rendell's full-length novels, belong in every mystery collection. Rita G. Keeler, St. John's School, Houston
