Ruth Rendell has held her place atop the world of mystery writers for decades, writing dozens of books that have won numerous awards, captivated countless fans, and collected widespread critical acclaim. Writing as Barbara Vine, she is the Edgar Award-winning author of such books as Chimney Sweeper's Boy and King Solomon's Carpet. Young Clodagh Brown loves to climb, especially the giant electrical pylons that form a neat row outside her parents' home. When this obsession breeds tragedy, her shamed family sends her to London for college. As a respite from insufferable classes, she begins climbing atop the local houses with her unique band of friends. But it is a practice that lands the group in a kidnapping scandal - and leads to a terrifying climax on the rooftops.

Grasshopper is a meticulously crafted novel - a sharp and textured thriller infused with layers of psychological suspense. Narrator Jenny Sterlin steps into Clodagh's unique world and takes readers on a rousing adventure through the Victorian neighborhoods of London.

    " I started out enjoying this book but the story became unconvincing principally because I didn't believe in the family in the flat trying to avoid detection from social services. Then there was an unconvincing twist in the tale ( won't give it away) but it was too much of a coincidence. Pity because she can write a good story. "

    " You'll never look at pylons the same way again! "

    " A bit too dark for me. I was getting so depressed that I didn't finish reading it. "

    " As an audiobook this was a wonderful listen. A bit slow paced at times, but it held my attention, and as the story developed, I found myself wanting to keep listening to find out what was going to happen next. (18 cd's) "
