9780091796785: Collected Stories

Three classic Ruth Rendell stories: Means of Evil, The Fallen Curtain and The Fever Tree. Ruth Rendell is unequalled in her ability to weave stories that challenge our preconceptions and prejudices. From Wexford and Burden's investigation of a wife's apparent suicide, with all the evidence pointing to the husband in Means of Evil to the unsettling psychology behind a man's friendship with a boy in The Fallen Curtain and the paranoia that plagues two people who no longer know how to trust, in The Fever Tree.

Biographie de l'auteur :

Ruth Rendell was an exceptional crime writer, and will be remembered as a legend in her own lifetime. Her groundbreaking debut novel, From Doon With Death, was first published in 1964 and introduced the reader to her enduring and popular detective, Inspector Reginald Wexford, who went on to feature in twenty-four of her subsequent novels.

With worldwide sales of approximately 20 million copies, Rendell was a regular Sunday Times bestseller. Her sixty bestselling novels include police procedurals, some of which have been successfully adapted for TV, stand-alone psychological mysteries, and a third strand of crime novels under the pseudonym Barbara Vine. Very much abreast of her times, the Wexford books in particular often engaged with social or political issues close to her heart.

Rendell won numerous awards, including the Crime Writers’ Association Gold Dagger for 1976’s best crime novel with A Demon in My View, a Gold Dagger award for Live Flesh in 1986, and the Sunday Times Literary Award in 1990. In 2013 she was awarded the Crime Writers’ Association Cartier Diamond Dagger for sustained excellence in crime writing. In 1996 she was awarded the CBE and in 1997 became a Life Peer.

Ruth Rendell died in May 2015. Her final novel, Dark Corners, is scheduled for publication in October 2015

Quatrième de couverture :

MEANS OF EVIL
THE FALLEN CURTAIN
THE FEVER TREE

'If the crime short story is an endangered species, Ruth Rendell is one of the few courageous environmentalists fighting for its survival. She presents irrefutable evidence that the genre deserves not merely to survive, but to flourish.' The Times

The Fallen Curtain and Other Stories was first published in 1976, the title story winning an Edgar from the Mystery Writers of America. As The Times Literary Supplement observed, 'Here we have a natural storyteller.'

This was followed in 1979, with five classic Wexford cases. ' Means of Evil and Other Stories demonstrates that the classical short story is by no means dead. Ruth Rendell has given us five gems.' Daily Telegraph.

In 1982, The Fever Tree and Other Stories appeared. 'These stories can only add to her high standing in the world of crime writing . . . Ruth Rendell keeps us fascinated as she weaves her webs.' Woman and Home
