A classic Rendellian loner, Mix Cellini is superstitious about the number 13. Living in a decaying house in Notting Hill, Mix is obsessed with 10 Rillington Place, where the notorious John Christie committed a series of foul murders. He is also infatuated with a beautiful model who lives nearby - a woman who would not look at him twice.

Mix's landlady, Gwendolen Chawcer is equally reclusive - living her life through her library of books.

Both landlady and lodger are caught up in their own psychologically twisted parallel worlds. But when reality intrudes into Mix's life, a long pent-up violence explodes.

One of her darkest and best. * Literary Review *
If Ruth Rendell were not slotted into the category of writer of mystery novels, she would have won the Booker long ago * Books of the Year, Evening Standard *
