The Birthday Present
evelyn0309 avatar reviewed on + 84 more book reviews

Another great thriller by the masterful Ruth Rendell, writing The Birthday Present as Barbara Vine. She tells you most of the facts in the first several chapters and then deliciously unfolds the story. Rendell has keen insight into the human psyche and a wealth of knowledge on British politics and society. She uses both to tell this contemporary tale of sexuality, paranoia, and life's twists and turns.

A good read all around!
