Ruth Rendell writing as Barbara Vine. Family madness and obsession, an old murder reconsidered 30 years later. Complex characters, as you would expect from Rendell. Old sins cast long shadows, as my grandmother said.
This was an interesting mystery as family secrets are revealed a bit at a time. At first, the slowness of the narrative annoyed me, but overtime I began to appreciate the way Faith learned about her family's past along with the reader.
