Minty's boyfriend, Jock, was killed in the disastrous train wreck at Paddington, shortly after he borrowed all her savings. Now he has come back to haunt her. Zillah lost her estranged husband, Jerry, in that same accident. She is not convinced he is actually dead, but for reasons of her own decides not to pursue the matter. Fiona's fiancé, Jeff, has simply disappeared-quite inexplicably since she was supporting him in style.

In her ingeniously unnerving new novel, Ruth Rendell deftly traces the connections among these women-and between them a series of vicious stabbings terrifying London. Adam and Eve and Pinch Me is a masterpiece of malice and psychological suspense.

Fascinated by the characters themselves before you even discover all the odd ways they become linked.

I think this is my favourite Rendell book so far. Hated to put it down. It is about 3 women who are only connected by a charming con man. There are 2 murders, mental illness, politics and homosexuality. Great reading.
