Author(s): Ruth Rendell
This title features three classic Ruth Rendell stories: "Means of Evil", "The Fallen Curtain" and "The Fever Tree". Ruth Rendell is unequalled in her ability to weave stories that challenge our preconceptions and prejudices, from Wexford and Burden's investigation of a wife's apparent suicide, with all the evidence pointing to the husband in "Means of Evil" to the unsettling psychology behind a man's friendship with a boy in "The Fallen Curtain" and the paranoia that plagues two people out of love, terrified of being rejected in "The Fever Tree". This collection first published 2007.
