Another Wexford mystery read by George Baker Her white face, beautiful, unmarked by any flaw of skin or feature, stared blankly back at him. He fancied that she had cringed, her slim body pressing further into the wall behind her. He didn't speak. He had never known how to talk to women. There was only one thing he had ever been able to do to women, and, advancing now, smiling, he did it. Then, when it was all over, he straightened her against the wall so that she would be ready to die for him again. It was the best thing in his life, just knowing that she was there, waiting until the next time..... But one day, she wasn't waiting...wasn't there...… (mehr)

Ella lo espera en la oscuridad, su mente y cuerpos perfectos, pasivos, hasta que un día, cuando él va a la bodega, ella se ha ido...

Late last year we were offered the library of an avid, widely read deceased uncle of a friend. He had a habit of writing angry comments at the front of the books he disliked. I can do no better on this occasion than quote him: 'Another bad one.'

I'm really surprised that this is a seventies Rendell, I thought her work from that period would read better. Have I overrated her in the past?

I do wish I could have kept the entire library of this stranger to me. Going through his books, picking one and discarding another - as it was, we kept maybe a couple of hundred of them - his scathing commentaries almost urged me to read the books, I could see some companionship in agreeing with him. Can you get anything like that from a kindle? With the book comes so much more than the book. Books, paper and glue books, that have been touched in ways that are passed on to the next reader, value added, if you like. Long may even the bad ones live.

One of my favourite Ruth Rendell novels. This is one of her "standalone" novels, as opposed to the Inspector Wexford Series. I have read more than a dozen of her standalone novels since early 2013. I enjoyed them all so much that it is hard to pick a favourite. The standalone novels seem to have more depth than the Wexford detective stories; they are deeper character studies, but their real beauty is the great sense of humour, very much like Monty Python. For example, the main protagonist in "A Demon in My View" is a reclusive middle aged man living in a London boarding house or block of flats. He has a compelling urge to strangle women but he has developed a unique way of controlling his "demons". All the characters living in this house are interesting and funny, but especially the "strangler" - I find Rendell's perceptiveness and psychological depth, along with her great humour an irresistable combination.

From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then - in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life - was drawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still...
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.
-Edgar Allan Poe
