About the Author

Margaret Yorke lives in Buckinghamshire. She is a past chairman of the Crime Writers' Association and her outstanding contribution to the genre has been recognised by her being awarded the 1999 CWA Cartier Diamond Dagger.


This psychological thriller circumvents an investigative protagonist and shows how extraordinary circumstances can arise from ordinary lives. A dullish, obsessive-compulsive judge and his timid, unassuming wife become the objects of a newly released rapist's harassment; however, as the rapist continues his practices of mail fraud, opportunism, and violence toward women, the judge and his wife begin to reexamine their relationship. Yorke's intensely thorough and sensible writing style builds inexorably to a completely satisfying conclusion.

'A scary. Superbly crafted thriller from the mistress of unease.' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'Places Margaret Yorke in the company of P.D James and Ruth Rendell.' OPTIONS 'A book that sees Margaret Yorke vying for Patricia Highsmith's Laurels'.' PUBLISHING NEWS 'Nobody does it better than Margaret Yorke.' DAILY TELEGRAPH 'Yorke's territory lies behing the net of curtains of respectable suburbia... no crime writer compares in extracting unease, fear and evil from such placid surfaces.' THE TIMES

Veteran British mystery writer Yorke deftly explores the mind of a murderer convicted of rape. (Aug.)
