really liked it

I really love Barbara Vine's (aka Ruth Rendell) books. They all have a very dark tone to them and place their emphasis not on "whodunit" but on "why."

This book is no exception. A woman whose aunt was hanged for murder tells the gripping story of how the murder came to happen. We know from the first page who the killer is and who the victim is, and yet as the book goes on, it becomes more and more interesting and harder to put down.
