On Valentine's Day, four members of the Coverdale family--George, Jacqueline, Melinda and Giles--were murdered in the space of 15 minutes. Their housekeeper, Eunice Parchman, shot them, one by one, in the blue light of a televised performance of Don Giovanni. When Detective Chief Superintendent William Vetch arrests Miss Parchman two weeks later, he discovers a second tragedy: the key to the Valentine's Day massacre hidden within a private humiliation Eunice Parchman has guarded all her life. --from Publisher description.

Rendall is always a good read. However, she overdid the psychological profiling. It yawned a bit.

Definitely not sweet. My favorite Ruth Rendell novel. Great read.

The opening line of Ruth Rendell's A Judgment in Stone: "Eunice Parchman killed the Coverdale family because she could not read or write." It tells the reader the full unvarnished truth and yet raises an entire novel's worth of very complicated questions.
