‘I think you know who killed your stepfather’ said Wexford. So begins this scintillating collection of long and short stories by Ruth Rendell. It was clear to both Wexford and Burden that Tom Peterlee was not killed for £360, but various people would have liked them to think he was… It is a case which reminds the Chief Inspector that there is only a thin line dividing the cop from the criminal. The criminal impulse may be present in the most routine or intimate situation. In this second story, Browning’s poem, ‘Porphyria’s Lover’, is the inspiration for the murderous passion. In Shreds and Shivers the accidental discovery of Amanita phalloides (a poisonous mushroom) leads to a game of Russian Roulette in a supermarket. With unerring insight and deceptive economy of style, Ruth Rendell probes behind the passions of everyday life to pinpoint the frailties, the desires and deceptions, the guilty secret of human beings.The book ends with The Strawberry Tree, a disturbingly evocative novella-length tale of lost innocence set on the island of Majorca. It is a triumphant conclusion to a collection of stories that will linger in the mind.
