I really enjoyed this book but was disappointed to see some crude language in a Ruth Rendell book.

I got half way through this book and stopped. I was unable to feel anything for the characters, they seemed wooden and boring and there were way too many of them. The storyline was flat as well with writing that seemed to not whether it should be dark humour or deep human perceptions. My first Ruth Rendell book, she seems to have a great following so maybe I'll try another one just to see.

A snowy light in a suburb of London, and another psychological mystery from Rendell. As reviewed by Sheree-Lee Olson in the Globe & Mail: "A quietly sardonic study of life in one of London's cheaper outer suburbs, the novel deploys its characters to illustrate that, however much we think we know what's going on, we don't know the half."
