The face of trespass
Rendell's thirteenth novel. A bibliomystery - it is Graham Lanceton, the novelist no longer able to write, who, with his neurotic hopes and fears, dominates the plot. Light edge wear. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First U. Luckily, Ruth Rendell is worth reading for her writing alone. Jan 22, Steve Wilson rated it it was amazing. This book - published in - came to me via a friend who was cleaning out his cottage and is one of many currently sitting on my books shelves awaiting to be read.
This book provides more suspense within its less than pages than many writers can within novels 2 and three times its length. No cast of thousands. No myriad of sub plots. Just a simple story told exceptionally well with a twist at the end. Even though I read initially this a while ago, I always remembered it - it's one of those slow descent into madness books that is so believeable you are shocked at what you will accept from the main character. This one, however, ends with a great twist.
I recently reread it because I finally found it again by accident.
Detailed Review Summary of The Face of Trespass by Ruth Rendell
It is the story of a writer so obsessed with a woman that he will do anything for her. Aug 14, Liz rated it it was amazing Shelves: mysteries. This is the best non-Wexford Ruth Rendell book I have read to date, yet at first, I thought it boring, and almost decided not to finish it. Jan 11, Ken Saunders rated it really liked it.
This strange character study, of another wonderfully realized Rendell hermit, explodes into excruciating suspense from a wildly unconventional source. I would have liked another scene with the killer at the quickly executed conclusion- but still a satisfying thriller. Feb 07, Kathleen O'Nan rated it really liked it.
The kind of obsessive, self-fooling love that Graham has for a rich debutante who happens to be married already is an example of why Kiss wrote "Love Sucks"! A well-written look at obsession and loneliness. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Taking pleasure only because it was obvious that he was being played and his cringeworthy lovesick thoughts had become insufferable. The quite dull first two thirds had me wondering when the mystery might begin, but the final third did win me over in the end. It was well done, however I felt there were a number of plot holes which dragged it down.
Did Drusilla plan this that far in advance and hope that Gray would contact her a year later, or did she just see her opportunity when he happened to call her again after so many months?
Aug 26, Alice Mc rated it it was ok Shelves: thriller-mystery. Well I suppose this was ok, but not amazing, or even that good.
