Nobody gets out alive. Classic Rendell.

Settle back and enjoy vintage Rendell.
A great collection from Ruth with all the aspects we have come to love.
Tight, claustrophobic stories that leave none of the characters unscathed.
These shortened versions are perfect to reacquaint yourself with her earlier work.
