  • Rendell understands the nature of evil... Her gimlet intelligence eschews compassion; reading this collection is similar to being harangued by one of her unstable creations who behind your back, sharpens the knitting needle.

    The Guardian
  • Each [story] is like a condensed, polished Rendell novel.

    Daily Telegraph
  • Rendell's mastery of the short story is unsurpassed.

    The Times
  • Ruth Rendell, like all the great creators of crime fiction, keeps her pact with the reader. There’s a murder mystery, there are clues, there is a solution. It’s a very satisfying read

    Giles Brandreth
  • Here are the fears that haunt us, the nightmarish urban myths of our time... One of the most remarkable talents writing today
