Publisher's Summary

A lump of concrete dropped deliberately from a little stone bridge kills the wrong person. The young woman in the car behind is spared. But only for a while... A few weeks later, George Marshalson lives every father's worst nightmare: he discovers the murdered body of his eighteen-year-old daughter on the side of the road. Wexford steps into the case but soon a second teenage girl is murdered - a victim unquestionably linked to the first - and another family is shattered...

Gripping story

The twists & turns, res herrings & blind alleys make this one of Ruth Rendell’s most gripping stories. With a very believable cast of characters the reader is guided through the complex story of love, hate, desperation & many other emotions to a chilling climax. As always with Ruth Rendell there are other stories & issues running alongside the main plot. These enhance the overall story for the reader. An excellent story superbly read, the narrator sounded more like George Baker as Wexford then George Baker himself !

Not her best

Interesting story with the usual surprises along the way, but not her strongest. A couple of irritating characters spoilt it for me, and an unnecessarily long conclusion.

too many characters and too many stories

The many stories within this book were like a collection of short stories. The stories were full of interesting characters and scenes well described so I had a good picture in my mind. However the stories did not knit very well together to give the reader a believable and absorbing who done it and why. There is very little written about Amber's Stepmother and nothing to help the reader understand why she was the type of person that would resort to murder...it seemed a little extreme. Other villains were much more believable. Still I enjoyed the drama in the final chapters when Mary was born and not given away and Bal rescued Hannah
