Blurbs:
  • "Rendell is a great storyteller who knows how to make sure that the reader has to turn the pages out of a desperate need to find out what is going to happen next." John Mortimer, Sunday Times
  • "Plenty of style and many a wry reflection on the human condition...Rendell's mission in these well-crafted short stories is...to exhibit a cool skill in the telling of moral fables. This is serious entertainment." Frances Fyfield, Express
  • "In her writing, horror does not shake its gory locks directly at us, but hovers on the periphery of our inner vision, hidden among the ordinary, the everyday." Jane Shilling, Sunday Telegraph
  • "Rendell's mastery of the difficult short story genre is unsurpassed...Her mesmerising capacity to shock, chill and disturb is unmatched." The Times
  • "Irresistible." John Mortimer
