A Guilty Thing SurprisedA Guilty Thing Surprised by Ruth Rendell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Rendell’s ‘A Guilty Thing Surprised’ begins as a very good mystery but ends with a thud.

Rendell sets up the story in a section of town with a small bundle of characters and proceeds through each forth and back again recording their story. The characters are good and the plotting seems well done. Then Rendell wraps up the last few pages with a weird little messy solution that, seemed to me, a desperate way to end a story differently.

The setting is well done and, otherwise plotted well.

Bottom line: I don’t recommend this book. 5 out of 5 points.
