The dark, good-looking Guy is from a council flat. Leonora has a mews house in Holland Park, and her mother doesn't care for Guy - or the way he makes his money. His obsession with Leonora increases, even after they have grown apart, until eventually it creates in him a murderous madness.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebekkila | 2/8/2014

    " I found the book to a a bit unsettling. It is told from the point of view of a sociopath who is obssessed with a past love. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 2/2/2014

    " This was my first Ruth Rendell. Hoo boy, can you say obsessed psycho stalker guy? Eesh... Very interesting to hear the story from the creepy dude's point of view. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mguhin | 1/9/2014

    " I am a huge Rendell fan, but this was not one of her best outings. It seemed padded and somehow overdone. Having said that, I still liked it enough for 3 stars. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sarah | 1/3/2014

    " Ruth went wrong with this one. Generally enjoy her mysteries - but this was billed as "a novel of suspense." It was not suspensful. Story of the rather pathetic Guy, who winds up hiring a hit man of accidentally kills the wrong person. Waste of time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jack Neary | 1/1/2014

    " I can see how some readers have given up on this, but I admire its determination to stick with the rather unsavory lead character, to acknowledge his obsession, and not allow the story to turn into some kind of shoot-em-up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jaina S | 12/25/2013

    " Not her best. Not by a long shot. Tiresome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 12/7/2013

    " So when is obession not obession? And how many of the British are snobs? Read this. This is a great book that deals with shifts in belief and trust. It is at once complex and simple. Totally enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 K L | 11/19/2013

    " One of my all-time favorite books. It has a soundtrack in my mind, and it's the epitome of the late 80s. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randy Elrod | 11/7/2013

    " Great page turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loretta Lee | 4/3/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thom Dunn | 8/14/2012

    " NOT A REVIEW: By page 50 I realized I had read it years ago. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 7/30/2012

    " not her best, not as engrossing and characters weren't as 3d as usual. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Libby | 6/23/2012

    " 1.5 - My first book by Ms. Rendell. I had read good reviews of her work but found this book disappointing. She is a skilled writer and does a good job being in the mind of a psychopath in this book - but it just lacked plot. It was uneventful and unengaging "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lili | 5/4/2012

    " I have yet to read a poor Ruth Rendell mystery. in fact I have enjoyed reading them all. Not all at once but over the years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jasper | 4/4/2012

    " Read this in 1990 just after it came out, its the only Ruth Rendell book I've read and I found it sinister and compelling reading. A bit of a potboiler but a very good one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aleisha Z Coleman | 1/30/2012

    " reminiscient of the psychological thriller of patricia highsmith and her character tom ripley...yet guy is not quite as endearing. still a great read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristina UK | 1/25/2012

    " This was the first Ruth Rendall book I have read and I enjoyed it immensely. The characters were interesting and well developed, but also believable. I loved the way she got into the head of the obsessed ex and the story was mainly seen from his point of view. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Olivia Dan | 11/5/2011

    " I hated the main character and just wanted the book to be over. I did not enjoy reading it and I understand the karma that unfolds, but I cannot in good conscience recommend it to anyone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bibi Rose | 4/5/2011

    " Rendell is amazing when it comes to writing from the point of view of unpleasant, derelict or otherwise unlikely characters. It took me a while to get into this one but once the plot complications started mounting, it was irresistible. "
