Publisher's Summary

Previously uncollected and unpublished: new short stories from a master of psychological suspense.
New and uncollected tales of murder, mischief, magic and madness.
Ruth Rendell was an acknowledged master of psychological suspense: these are 10 (and a quarter) of her most chillingly compelling short stories, collected here together for the first time.
In these tales, a businessman boasts about cheating on his wife, only to find the tables turned. A beautiful country rectory reverberates to the echo of a historical murder. A compulsive liar acts on impulse, only to be lead inexorably to disaster. And a wealthy man finds there is more to his wife's kidnapping than meets the eye.
Atmospheric, gripping and never predictable, this is Ruth Rendell at her inimitable best.
The stories are: 'Never Sleep in a Bed Facing a Mirror'; 'A Spot of Folly'; 'The Price of Joy'; 'The Irony of Hate'; 'Digby's Wives'; 'The Haunting of Shawley Rectory'; 'A Drop Too Much'; 'The Thief'; 'The Long Corridor of Time'; 'In the Time of his Prosperity'; and 'Trebuchet'.

Good, but not vintage Rendell

Lovely to have a few final stories from Ruth Rendell but they were no up there with her best works. A couple of them were slow and repetitive and the ghost stories rather weak.
