Two damaged children: Teddy Brex, whom no-one loved, and so found it easier to relate to objects or things which never let him down; and Francine Hill, who was discovered sitting by the body of her mother, her skirt red with blood. She couldn’t tell the police or her father anything to help track down the killer.... Children grow up in different ways. Teddy became a handsome young man, Francine was beautiful - a sight for sore eyes. But it was death that brought them together.

I am so glad I found Audible. I listen to the stories while I am painting my art, ironing, cooking, travelling etc.
Ruth Rendell certainly knows how to keep you interested in a story and David Threlfall delivers it to you in a way that you can't stop listening. I thoroughy enjoyed this book and I will listen to it again. The main character Is like no other I know but so plausible. Great listening.
"Twisted plot and clever"
Not my favourite. But I love David Threlfall and Ruth Rendell. So good plot and good story!
Ruth Rendell rarely disappoints, and this is one of her best slow burners. The narration was ok, not the best but not the worst either.
