Description
Ruth Rendell is, in our minds, the queen of dark, psychological mysteries. So it's with sheer delight we bring you these gripping television adaptations of her work, populated by some of the best British actors in the business. These stories of suspense based on Baroness Rendell of Babergh's best-selling, award-winning crime novels explore the motives for murder across England’s many landscapes, from rock-strewn moors to suburban estates. Centering mostly on relationships, the plots involve a sneaky, sinister sister with an axe to grind; a henpecked husband seeking succor; a widow attracted to a possible killer; a young girl from London sent to live with closemouthed country relatives during the Blitz; a man looking into the death of a married woman he once loved; and a baffling case of a woman murdered while the suspect, a serial killer, was under police surveillance.

"Ravishingly intriguing."—Entertainment Today

"A stellar cast brings each story off the page and onto the screen with the author's delicious irony and intrigue intact."—Exclusive Magazine

"For those who love British mysteries but tire of bloody thrill-kills and gritty pathology investigations."—Seattle Times
