It was his third visit to the gloomy house on Orchard Drive. Each time, he parked in the same place. Each time, he carried a briefcase. And each time, Louise North greeted him at the door....

Susan Townsend was the only resident with no interest in the affair going on next door, or in the neighbourhood gossip about it. Yet it was Susan who found the bodies of the lovers, locked not in passion, but in death.

    " A very open neighborhood love affair ends up in murder. The question, as always, is whodunit? This is not one of Rendell's best mysteries. "

    " A good old fashioned English murder mystery. I enjoyed it. Though is was completely predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daimen Vauban | 11/20/2012

    " Fairly complex plot but not necessarily best delivered. Purely a mystery, not so much a thriller. Perfect airplane book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann M | 10/25/2012

    " Good basic mystery and she writes well. A bit dated, sociologically speaking. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carolyn | 10/6/2012

    " The plot was incredibly predictable. I had guessed the denouement by the end of the first chapter and that NEVER happens for me. The book was slow as well. "

    " Het stille huis is een boek dat mij niet echt kon boeien. Heb er zelfs een ander boek tussendoor gelezen. Ik had al een teleurstellend boek gelezen van Ruth Rendell, maar op 1 ervaring kun je toch niet afgaan dacht ik? Maar ook dit boek vond ik niet de moeite en krijgt van mij ** "
