A Sight For Sore Eyes

I'm not all that into suspense fiction but I do like Ruth Rendell's psychological suspense. My favorite is The Crocodile Bird. That one is a must read. I listened to A Sight for Sore Eyes on tape--narrated by Donada Peters. It's creepy good fun. Rendell is a master at creating a dark mood with an ongoing sense of foreboding in a contemporary setting. Edgar Allen Poe meets Stephen King? Dysfunctional families produce two young people who are not comfortable in their surroundings. Of course, their paths cross and their lives and the lives of those close to them are never the same. Read it on a dark and stormy night. I just hope you don't have an Edsel in your garage.
