What on earth could have provoked a modern day St. Valentine's Day massacre?

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. A brilliant rendering of character, motive, and the heady discovery of truth, A Judgement in Stone is among Ruth Rendell's finest psychological thrillers.

Industry Reviews

"One of her masterpieces." -- Jake Kerridge * Telegraph * "Rendell's psychological insights are so absorbing, it's easy to forget what a superb plotter she is" * The Times * "Ruth Rendell is not only the finest crime novelist there is, but one of the finest novelists writing in the English language" * Scotsman * "The most brilliant mystery novelist of our time - mesmerizing" -- Patricia Cornwell "Ruth Rendell has quite simply transformed the genre of crime writing. She displays her peerless skill in blending the mundane, commonplace aspects of life with the potent murky impulses of desire and greed, obsession and fear" * Sunday Times *
