  • Yet further proof of Rendell's amazing criminal mastery

    Evening Standard
  • [Targo] is as good a villain as Wexford ever tried to pin down . . . hauntingly nasty

  • Targo haunted this world, as he haunts the reader: the monster is out of the box and it's impossible to put him back once this book has been closed

  • One of the best-written detective series in the genre's history . . . At any time we can return to Kingsmarkham to explore the darker side of humanity with Wexford as our reassuring and humane guide

    Washington Post
  • Ruth Rendell is marvellous at psychological tension... She knits all the threads together with a casual flourish that shows veteran expertise
