Publisher Comments:

Teddy was born in squalor. Now he is a craftsman determined to banish ugliness from his life. Harriet is a beautiful, bored trophy wife who employs a series of repairmen for her sexual satisfaction. And Francine is a college student who witnessed her mother's murder and now must free herself from her father's manipulative second wife. Connected by strands of chance, their lives intersecting in the strangest of ways, these three people are on a journey that will bring them to each other--and to a beautiful ivy-covered home with at least one dead body in the basement....

As someone who is studying the art of writing the mystery novel, I was excited to read A Sight for Sore Eyes by Ruth Rendell.
Her plotting is so well planned, that even when I thought I knew her next move, I was surprised many times. The twists in the
story were so juicy, I kept thinking about them for weeks afterwards. What did I learn? Justice comes in many forms.
