Ruth Rendell was one of my favorite mystery writers. I will miss her twisted humor and clever, tangled stories. RIP

Nothing puts me in my happy place faster than a Ruth Rendell novel. They're all so good.

I hope Ruth Rendell and P.D. James are having the most marvelous, endless drinks party together, now. What's *your* favorite Rendell novel?

Ruth Rendell was one of the toughest, darkest, shrewdest novelist I’ve ever read.

So sad about Ruth Rendell. Definitely time to reread an Inspector Wexford novel in her honor.
