The latest victim in a series of apparently motiveless murders is found near Inez Ferry's antique shop in Marylebone. Someone saw a shadowy figure running away, but the only other clues are that the murderer usually strangles his victim and removes something personal, like a cigarette lighter or a necklace.... The activities of the sinister 'Rottweiler' will exert a profound influence on the lives of a small group of people, especially when the suspicion emerges that one of them may be a homicidal maniac.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justine | 1/16/2014

    " More like her Vine work to me. A great holiday read (although holidays over). Quirky range of characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janice | 1/14/2014

    " Like most Rendell, compulsively readable and not a little distressing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/12/2014

    " I picked up this book because I wanted to read a good mystery. Unfortunately, I am still looking for one. Though the book wasn't terrible... I will stop right there. The book wasn't terrible. I probably shouldn't have expected much from a book called The Rottweiler. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim Dudek | 1/12/2014

    " I had mixed feelings about this book. Parts are brilliant. I found the portrayal of one woman's descent in alcoholism particularly compelling. On the other hand anything to do with the actual crime seemed disappointing. The two cops investigating the killings were so inept they should have appeared on an episode of Murder She Wrote. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bev | 1/9/2014

    " Ruth Rendell always entertains me -- great travel reading as always. "

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

    " Interesting novel. Suspenseful albeit the murderer is revealed soon at the beginning of the story. Not certain I enjoyed the ending, but the story kept me entertained and captivated. My second Rendell and I can't say I was disappointed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sadie | 1/6/2014

    " Oh my... that's all I can really say about this book.. hmmm... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimber | 12/25/2013

    " It's ok so far, but it isn't calling to me like some books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Psalm | 11/6/2013

    " Tedious, boring and ultimately disappointing. Not her best. Oh and Will's so called "girlfriend" was just as special as him, if ya know what I mean! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison Alvarado | 10/16/2013

    " Slow book, with a lot of characters. At some parts I had difficulty determining who exactly was who! It did give some insight into the killers point of view which I thought was interesting, but that was all. Not super exciting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tee-by-the-Sea | 10/4/2013

    " I was totally engrossed by the characters and *guessed* correctly who the killer was from the beginnng. Ultimately, the ending was a let-down and I am probably done with Rendell "psychological mysteries" for a while. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gudrun | 8/13/2013

    " een ouderwetse goed geschreven thriller. Ik heb er een tijdje over gedaan, met alle feesten hier in huis, maar uiteindelijk toch nog uitgeraakt. Niet slecht. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 MaryAnn | 8/4/2013

    " Not at all like the title. Good read and not too weird. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karlin | 6/3/2013

    " Murder mysteries tend to not get high ratings from me just becuase they are not my type of book...but generally this is a good beach read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 5/4/2013

    " Not Rendell's best work. It was mediocre, as her work goes--which still makes it much better than the work of most other mystery writers. I'd skip it unless you're already a die-hard Rendell fan. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pipistrelle | 4/24/2013

    " I liked it well enough to get more Ruth Rendell out of the library. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna | 2/11/2013

    " Not bad, a little bit predictable - but sometimes that makes for an easy read inbetween life's others stressors !! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 10/10/2012

    " Interesting story with interesting characters and irony thrown in. Rendell is one of the great mystery writers; she didn't disappoint me in this offering. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 8/12/2012

    " I'm currently reading and quite enjoying this murder mystery set in London. The author's writing style and the tone (and genre) of the book remind me a lot of P.D. James' books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thea Klapwald | 6/13/2012

    " I really like this one. Read it twice. So intense. You really don't know who is the killer even when you do know it! "
