KIRKUS REVIEW

This "first-ever omnibus of [Rendell's] shorter fiction" brings together her first four story-collections--The Fallen Curtain, Means of Evil, The Fever Tree, and The New Girl Friend. And it's worth every penny, especially for fans of Rendell's Inspector Wexford. In 38 stories (1973-1985) here, her sharp characters, distinctive English settings, and piquant sense of social imbalances are all at work on a smaller, powerful scale. Delightful.
