Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Writing as Barbara Vine, Britain's preeminent mystery novelist Ruth Rendell crafts literary suspense of the highest order. With this richly textured and utterly absorbing page-tumer, Vine adds to her growing reputation as one of the great writers of our time.

Bestselling and critically acclaimed novelist Gerald Candless dies suddenly, and leaves behind a wife and two doting daughters. To sort through her grief, his daughter Sarah puts aside her university studies and agrees to write a biography of her famous father. But as she begins her research and pulls back the veil of his past, her life is slowly torn apart: a terrible logic begins to unfold that explains her mother's remoteness, her father's need to continually reinvent himself — and sheds shocking light on a long-forgotten London murder.

About the Author

Barbara Vine won an Edgar Award for her first novel, A Dark-Adapted Eye. Her other acclaimed novels include A Fatal Inversion (winner of Britain's esteemed Crime Writers Gold Dagger Award), Gallowglass, and The Brimstone Wedding. She lives in London.
