Publisher's Summary

Alan Groombridge had a fantasy. Husband to a woman he didn't like, father of two children he had never wanted, and manager of the second smallest branch of the Anglian-Victoria bank in the country, Alan was doomed to a life of domestic boredom and tedious routine.
All that saved him was that one fantasy: stealing enough of the bank's money to allow him just one year of freedom -one year in which to live a different sort of life. But one day there was no more dreaming and no more games. The Anglian-Victoria bank was robbed and both manager and cashier disappeared. ln place of the dull and dreary repetition on that had once existed, there came a brutal, chilling nightmare that might never, never end.

Smooth and mysterious

What made the experience of listening to Make Death Love Me the most enjoyable?

Rendell in her genius style weaves a story of an ordinary man making choices to leave his existing life. It kept me guessing how soon he would be discovered. The other characters rang true to form and did not come across and cliche. Wonderful read.

His decision to believe he was in love with another woman and their plans to live elsewhere. The new woman knows nothing about the man's life or his crime.

Flawed humans...

Yes, I have to believe the coincidences to love this. But by the time Rendell asks me to do that, I am so absorbed with every single one of her complex and believable flawed humans that it's easy to do! These are the true "nail-biters" for me-- when real people encounter real situations and make choices while suffering consequences for being true to their flawed selves! I could listen to the narrator for a few more days!
