liked it

I seem to be on a Ruth Rendell kick these days, but I actually liked this one more than the others. Perhaps, that's because there's no sign of Hannah in this one? (Poor Hannah, maybe I'll warm up to her some day)

I figured out part of the mystery mid-way through, but there were a few twists that I hadn't anticipated.

So far, all the Rendell books I've read have a theme to them and this one concerned abused women. She handled the subject well, illustrating not only the despair the women feel but the inadequacies of the law to protect them and the strained resources to give them aid.

Lindsay Who's Hannah?!

Diane DS Hannah Goldsmith is introduced in End in Tears. I forgot that I'm reading the books out of order, so readers might not have "met" her yet.
