Description
From three-time Edgar Award winner Ruth Rendell comes this captivating and expertly plotted tale of residents and servants on one block of a posh London street, and the deadly ways in which their lives intertwine. Hexam Place appears placid and orderly—drivers take their employers to and from work, dogs are walked, flowers are planted in gardens, and Christmas candles lit uniformly in windows. But beneath the veneer, the upstairs-downstairs relationships in these little rows of houses are set to combust. Henry, the handsome valet to Lord Studley, is sleeping with both the Lord's wife and his university-age daughter. Montserrat, the Still family's lazy au pair, assists Mrs. Still in keeping secret her illicit affair with a television actor—in exchange for pocket cash. June, the haughty housekeeper to a princess of dubious origin, tries to enlist her fellow house-helpers into a "society" to address complaints about their employers. Meanwhile Dex, the disturbed gardener to several families on the block, thinks a voice on his cell phone is giving him godlike instructions.

"The queen of the psychological thriller ... [gives us] an updated Downton Abbey with a higher body count."—Mail on Sunday (London)

"It's a pleasure to report that Ruth Rendell, at the age of 82 and after publishing more than 60 books, has given us yet another gem. A pleasure but not a surprise, since Rendell has for years ... been bringing new sophistication and psychological depth to the traditional English mystery."—Washington Post
