Mix Cellini (which he pronounces with an S rather than a C) is superstitious about the number 13 and has always felt dogged by ill-luck. In the house where he lives, there are 13 steps down to the landing below his rooms. His landlady lives her life almost exclusively through her library, blind to the neglect and decay around her. However, Mix is obsessed with the life of the notorious John Christie, who lived in the same Notting Hill neighbourhood at 10 Rillington Place, and Mix has developed a passion for a beautiful woman who lives nearby....

    " I just re-read this, as I was trapped in the house without a book...Rendell is just fabulous. She's one of the true masters of the genre, and like Highsmith, a master of creeping dread and a sickening feeling that all is about to go off-kilter. With a few brushstrokes, she breathes life into very minor characters--in this case, Queenie, Olive, Tom, Darel, etc.--and lavishes attention on her major ones. I finished the book with a profound sense of just how quickly things can go horribly wrong when one lacks even an iota of self-awareness. "

    " I enjoyed this book, to a certain extent. What I liked about it was the insight it gave me on a distured pyschopath's mind and the eerie tone that set up the right mood! What I didn't enjoy, though, was the slow pace that the events progressed at and at some point, I got really bored... But then again, Rendell got the hair on my head to stand up by the end! It isn't the best book I've read so far, but it isn't the worst either. Despite the great pyschological analysing done, and the good aspects that make this book a thriller, I wouldn't recommend it for Reading. "

    " 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. "

    " This was an interesting read. It really got into the minds of the characters. I can't go into detail, although it isn't really a mystery. The ending is very ironic. "
