    "Totally a Ruth Rendell read"

    This book was a good, short listen with a good narrator. It reminded me of Rendell's The Rottweiler, although this one was written first.
    If you love Rendell books, then you will like this one as it quintessentially Rendell.

    "Thrilling!"

    Wonderfully written. I'll never forget the view into a disturbed mind. Rendell is an exellent writer - Julian Clover is an impressive reader.

    "A gripping story, a wonderful performance"

    One of the best Rendell stories I have heard. Glover's performance is masterly. The characters brought to life with incredible vividness. The building atmosphere and plot hold you to the sudden, shocking, breath-taking end. A killer story.
