Publisher's Summary

In a gloomy cellar, the figure of a beautiful, pale woman makes no move when the man advances on her from the shadows, puts his hands around her neck and strangles her. Arthur Johnson is a mild-mannered, shy man who has never known how to talk to women. His resulting loneliness has twisted his yearning for love and respect into a carefully constructed predilection for violence and control. On the floor below him, Anthony Johnson, a scholar studying psychopathic personalities is about to stumble - quite literally - upon one of Arthur's many secrets.

Totally a Ruth Rendell read

This book was a good, short listen with a good narrator. It reminded me of Rendell's The Rottweiler, although this one was written first.
If you love Rendell books, then you will like this one as it quintessentially Rendell.
