Kept guessing as to what really happened at the end Hence it was with much trepidation that I started reading this book by Ruth Rendell To say that the stories were good would be an understatement They were excellent dark malicious revengeful hateful and suspenseful with slight undertones of humor A total of 22 enjoyable short stories and 5 classic Inspector Wexford cases Though some of these stories were written way back in the 70s and 80s they are far from boring and as good as her novels A few of the stories that i really enjoyed reading are You Can t Be Too Careful Almost Human Divided We Stand Ginger and the Kingsmarkham Chalk Circle A Glowing Future A needle for the Devil Recommended for anyone with an interest in short stories Looking forward to reading up some of Rendell s other novels too very good short stories collected herei find most of the stories unpredictable
