Publisher's Summary

The man who had died was Ismay's stepfather, Guy. Nine years on, she and her sister, Heather, still live in the same house in Clapham. But it has been divided into two self-contained flats. Their mother lives upstairs with her sister, Pamela. And the bathroom, where Guy drowned, has disappeared. Ismay works in public relations, and Heather in catering.
They get on well. They always have. They never discuss the changes to the house, still less what happened that August day. But even lives as private as these, where secrets hang in the air like dust, intertwine with other worlds and other people. And, with painful inevitability, the truth will emerge.

Not my favorite RR

The story was engaging, and I wanted to know what would happen - but frankly was glad when it was over. I cared about Heather and Edmund, but found all of the other characters simply irritating. I've enjoyed Ruth Rendell's books for a long time, but this is not a favorite.

Slow Moving But Good

Not one of Rendells best but still worth reading. Great variety of characters to care about and hate. Slow in parts but kept my interest. If you're a big Rendell fan you'll want to read this.If not a fan of her kind of story pass it by.
