Publisher's Summary

The first girl had a bite mark on her neck, but they traced the DNA to her boyfriend. But the tabloids got hold of the story and called the killer The Rottweiler and the name stuck. The latest murder takes place very near Inez Ferry's antique shop in Marylebone. When the Rottweiler’s trinkets start showing up in the shop, suddenly, everyone Inez knows is a suspect, and the killer feels all too close. Someone saw a shadowy figure running away past the station, but the only other clues are that the murderer usually strangles his victims and removes something personal - like a cigarette lighter or a necklace. Since her husband died, Inez has supplemented her income by taking in tenants. The murderous activities of the sinister 'Rottweiler' will exert a profound influence on the lives of this heterogeneous little community, especially when the suspicion emerges that one of them may be a homicidal maniac.

The Rottweiler

This is yet another brilliant slice of London life as crafted by the Queen of Suspense. Widow, Inez Ferry, runs an antiques shop in Paddington which features ontains a number of flats above it. Her tenants range from the immaculate Jeremy Quick, the exotic Ludmilla and her live-in boyfriend plus the uncomplicated young Will. A local man, nicknamed 'The Rottweiler' is strangling women in the area; who is he exactly and what exactly compels him to do so?

It's a five star listen; all of the characters, plots and sub-plots are beautifully interwoven. The narrator, Nigel Anthony, as ever is first class and performs a wide range of accents and dialects with consummate ease.
