Description
The first young woman murdered had a bite mark on her neck, prompting the media to dub her killer "the Rottweiler," in this stand-alone mystery from the multiple Edgar and Gold Dagger Award–winning creator of the Inspector Wexford series. The Rottweiler is a serial garrotter, and takes a small trinket from each young woman as a macabre souvenir. The police focus their investigation on the diverse London neighborhood near Lisson Grove, and an antiques shop where these trinkets start turning up amid the clutter—and its owner Inez Ferry is feeling all too conspicuous, whether as suspect or potential victim.

"[Ruth] Rendell is a master of the tires-on-ice moment, the moment when the intersecting elements begin their inexorable slide into calamity.... [Her] body of work ... constitutes one of the most precise and unflinching contributions to contemporary English fiction."—Salon

"Subtle, witty, and observant, Rendell creates a rich tapestry of characters and interweaves their stories.... The story of the killer provides the adrenaline, but the smaller stories of Becky, Inez, Zeinab, and the rest give this novel a beating heart."—Boston Globe
