Ruth Rendell's books are not only whodunits but whydunits, uncovering the motive roots of murder' Mail on Sunday
Ruth Rendell has won many awards, including the Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger for 1976's best crime novel with A Demon in My View; a second Edgar in 1984 from the Mystery Writers of America for the best short story, 'The New Girl Friend'; and a Gold Dagger award for Live Flesh in 1986. She was also the winner of the 1990 Sunday Times Literary award, as well as the Crime Writers' Association Cartier Diamond Dagger. In 1996 she was awarded the CBE and in 1997 became a Life Peer.
"Rendell's genius with the whodunnit form works to make everything doubly vital. Without being remotely didactic, she is the pre-eminent thematic novelist of her day . . . Jane Austen would have approved of Rendell's cliche-dissecting wit . . . It's impossible to imagine her writing anything devoid of import. She is one of the rare breed that make you feel privileged to be around at the same time as they are. She doles out death so that we might feel more alive" * New Statesman * "The queen of the whodunnit returns" * Word * "Ruth Rendell's books are not only whodunits but whydunits, uncovering the motive roots of murder" * Mail on Sunday * "Superb ... The suspense persists until the book's final sentences" * Publishers Weekly * "Gripping and memorable" * Sunday Times *
