The Secret House of Death | [Ruth Rendell]

The Secret House of Death

It was his third visit to the gloomy house on Orchard Drive. Each time, he parked in the same place. Each time, he carried a briefcase. And each time, Louise North greeted him at the door.... Susan Townsend was the only resident with no interest in the affair going on next door, or in the neighbourhood gossip about it. Yet it was Susan who found the bodies of the lovers, locked not in passion, but in death.

    "Was life really like this?"

    Quite apart from the detective element, which I really enjoyed, this was worth the price as a period piece. I was brought up in the 70s and this book evoked such memories of times when men were men and went to work, and women stayed home (and had cleaners! - but no central heating).

    Beautifully read as always by Simon Russell Beale, capable of infusing menace into a company annual report and balance sheet.
