Any additional comments?

An absolutely wonderful book, beautifully written, impeccably plotted, just fabulous. Ruth Rendell is such a brilliant writer, being a great storyteller as well as writing prose of exceptional beauty and clarity.The pleasure of the story is greatly enhanced by Juliet Stevenson's exquisite narration. She has such a lovely voice, never mispronounces anything or puts a stress on the wrong word, and makes the characters come fully alive with her range of voices and accents.
