a-judgement-in-stoneMy teasers today are from page 29 of Ruth Rendell’s A Judgement in Stone:

She was the strangest person they were ever likely to meet. And had they known what her past contained, they would have fled from her or barred their doors against her as against the plague – not to mention her future, now inextricably bound up with theirs.


I’m in Suffolk, at Lowfield Hall, a large 1930-ish house on the outskirts of Stanwich, with the Coverdale family and their new housekeeper Eunice Parchman.

This is a chilling tale full of psychological insights into the mind and motives of a killer.

  1. Oh… I wonder what her past contained! It’s been a few years since I’ve read Ruth Rendell, it may be time again.


  2. I haven’t read anything by Ruth Rendell, but hear great things about her books. I will have to add this one to my TBR list.


  3. Psychological fiction I find very exhausting but interesting. I don’t read them much anymore. Engrossing teasers here.


  4. This sounds like my type of book. I’ve not read Rendell, is this part of a series?


  5. Thanks for all your comments. JoAnn, Gautami, Jess, Margot & Wanda this is the first one of hers I’ve read – it’s good so far.
    FleurFisher I’ve also borrowed The Birthday Present by her writing as Barbara Vine. I’ve only read a few pages but wasn’t too keen on it – maybe it get’s better.
    Stacybuckeye, this one is a stand-alone novel, I think. It’s not one of the Inspector Wexford books


  6. A Judgment in Stone is one of the best crime novels I have ever read, and I’ve read quite a number. Bizarrely, I once saw a stage play based on the book – which was a bit odd, to say the least.


  7. Sounds creepy and intriguing! I must admit I don’t read Ruth Rendell but I do read Barbara Vine (and yes, I realize they are the same person!). I read one Ruth Rendell that scared the daylights out of me; I find her BV books are much tamer, but (usually) very good!
