The Girl Next Door

Paperback edition released 16/07/2015

by Ruth Rendell

Crime and Mystery Historical fiction eBooks of the Month

The Girl Next Door Synopsis

A dark, sad, slightly depressing tale of old age.  We start in the late thirties when the crime was committed (so this is no whodunit) and then leap to the present where a group of children, who used to play together, are now all in their seventies and eighties and mostly miserable.  The connection between now and the original crime is really not the point of this tale.  It is more about the psychological nature and interconnection of the group.  All very pensive.
