About the Author

Ruth Rendell (1930-2015) won three Edgar Awards, the highest accolade from Mystery Writers of America, as well as four Gold Daggers and a Diamond Dagger for outstanding contribution to the genre from England's prestigious Crime Writ­ers' Association. Her remarkable career spanned a half century, with more than sixty books published. A member of the House of Lords, she was one of the great literary figures of our time.

Reviews

"In her trademark matter-of-fact prose, this clear-eyed, quietly brilliant writer examines the ties that ensnare her small cast of characters -- people linked in ways that are sometimes random, sometimes not."--Adam Woog, Seattle Times
"No one surpasses Ruth Rendell when it comes to stories of obsession, instability, and malignant coincidence, but in Portobello she has surpassed herself. Invisible wires draw seemingly disparate characters closer and closer until this reader actually felt them under his skin. The clarity and reason of her prose stand in perfect contrast to the escalating madness in the tale. Portobello is a brilliant novel."--Stephen King
"A thriller steeped in psychological intrigue . . . Rendell's prose style is as succinct and accessible as ever."--Daily Mirror (UK)
"Impossible to put down. . . . Portobello is as brilliant as anything she has ever written."--The Evening Standard (UK)
