Publisher's Summary

In a gloomy cellar, the figure of a beautiful, pale woman makes no move when the man advances on her from the shadows, puts his hands around her neck and strangles her. Arthur Johnson is a mild-mannered, shy man who has never known how to talk to women. His resulting loneliness has twisted his yearning for love and respect into a carefully constructed predilection for violence and control. On the floor below him, Anthony Johnson, a scholar studying psychopathic personalities is about to stumble - quite literally - upon one of Arthur's many secrets.

A gripping story, a wonderful performance

One of the best Rendell stories I have heard. Glover's performance is masterly. The characters brought to life with incredible vividness. The building atmosphere and plot hold you to the sudden, shocking, breath-taking end. A killer story.

Wonderfully written. I'll never forget the view into a disturbed mind. Rendell is an exellent writer - Julian Clover is an impressive reader.
