Publisher's Summary

A spectacularly compelling story of blackmail, accidental murders, and of one life's fateful unraveling from Ruth Rendell - "one of the most remarkable novelists of her generation" (People) - writing at her absolute best.
When his father dies, Carl Martin, a philosophy graduate and struggling novelist, inherits a house in a trendy London neighborhood. Carl needs cash, however, so he rents the upstairs room and kitchen to the first person he interviews, Dermot McKinnon. That was colossal mistake number one. Mistake number two was keeping his father's bizarre collection of homeopathic "cures" that he found in the medicine cabinet, including a stash of controversial diet pills. Mistake number three was selling 50 of those diet pills to a friend, who is then found dead. Now Dermot seizes a nefarious opportunity and begins to blackmail Carl, followed by his refusal to pay rent and a truly creepy invasion of Carl's space.
Ingeniously weaving together two storylines that finally merge in one shocking turn, Ruth Rendell describes one man's spiral into darkness - and murder - as he falls victim to a diabolical foe he cannot escape.
This is masterful storytelling that gets under your skin, brilliant psychological suspense from Ruth Rendell.

Boring

Would you try another book from Ruth Rendell and/or Ric Jerrom?

Not soon

What was most disappointing about Ruth Rendell’s story?

It was boring, main characters were people who did nothing and when they did, it wasn't believable. Went on way too long.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Narration was fine. What could the narrator do with such a dull and unrealistic plot?

What character would you cut from Dark Corners?

Everyone but Nicola.

Great book! Love Ruth Rendell

This is another great book by Ruth Rendell. A psychologically interesing listen (not scary) with lots of quirky characters (the best kind!). Ruth Rendell does it again. Check out some of her other books if you haven't already.
