Unlike the other residents of Middleton Hall, Stella is elegant, smart, and in control. Only Jenny, her care assistant, knows that she harbours a painful secret, and only she can prevent Stella from carrying it to the grave.

As the women talk, Jenny pieces together the answers to many questions that arise: Why has she kept possession of a house that her family don't know about? What happened there that holds the key to a distant tragedy?

As Jenny uses the house to meet her lover, she makes some unusual discoveries, but only when Stella leaves Jenny her tape recorder, into which she has recorded the true events of the past, can the truth be finally - and shockingly - revealed.

    " hmmm...according to the quote from the Chicago Tribune this is her best book ever...an amazing accomplishment. Actually, it's not. Her Inspector Wexford mysteries(as Ruth Rendell) are much better and while our protagonist, the superstitious Jenny, is engaging this just drug on and on for me. A bit better than average because the characters are finely drawn but when the denoument arrives it just fell flat for me. "

    " This is a new author for me and I'm torn between a 2 and 3 as a rating. It's a charming mystery that will appeal to anglophiles & I foresee an addiction to Rendell shortly despite the rating. I won't classify this as a "beach" read, as this author is so highly enjoyable & readable & perceptive it seems to be more than that. She knows human nature, all right. I see a few similarities with Iris Murdoch who was, I vaguely recall, darker. "

    " I've read several of Barbara Vine's psychological thrillers, but I wouldn't say this was one of her best. BV (or Ruth Rendell, if you prefer) is pretty good at characterisation and her mysteries, which delve into the past of families, always keep you guessing. There was nothing wrong with this story, it was highly readable, but just didn't excite me much. "
