by | Read by Imelda Staunton

Mystery & Suspense • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1991

Novelist Benet Archdale and housemaid Carol Stratford are two young, single parents who have no reason to know each other. They become tangled in a nightmarish spiral of kidnap, fraud, family violence and death. Ruth Rendell creates psychological suspense in thrillers that are compulsively readable or, in this case, listenable. British actress Imelda Staunton's reading is perfectly paced, and the characters are well defined. You'll have a hard time turning it off. N.B.H. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 92]
