    When their grandmother dies, Grace and Andrew Easton inherit her sprawling, book-filled London home, Dinmont House. Rather than sell it, the adult siblings move in together, splitting the numerous bedrooms and studies. The arrangement is unusual, but ideal for the affectionate pair - until the day Andrew brings home a new boyfriend. A devilishly handsome novelist, James Derain resembles Cary Grant, but his strident comments about Grace’s doctoral thesis soon puncture the house’s idyllic atmosphere. When he and Andrew witness their friend’s murder outside a London nightclub, James begins to unravel.

    From three-time Edgar Award-winning mystery writer Ruth Rendell comes a captivating tale of residents and servants on one block of a posh London street - and the deadly ways their lives intertwine. Life in the well-manicured London locale of Hexam Place is not as placid and orderly as it appears. Behind the tranquil gardens and polished entryways, relationships between servants and their employers are set to combust. Henry, the handsome valet to Lord Studley, is sleeping with both the Lord's wife and his university-age daughter.

    Susianna says: "Cast of Unlikable Characters Doing Very Little"
    "Excellent narration"

    Would you listen to The St. Zita Society again? Why?

    Yes, compelling story, top notch narration.


    What does Carol Boyd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I was afraid i was going to listen to " Lynda Snell". But Carol Boyd was the best female narrator I have ever experienced. A pleasant voice for simple narration and apt and impressive characterizations for dialogue. Pleas give me a great deal more of Carol
