A Judgement In Stone.
ISBN: 0099171406 Global Overview for this book
1 journaler for this copy...
Eunice is an odd character, her fear of people knowing of her illiteracy being the main cause of her strangeness. When she takes a job as housekeeper to the Coverdale family no-one could have predicted that her inability to read & write would result in a violent shooting that would leave four members of the family dead. A tragedy that may have also been avoided if Eunice had not been befriended by Joan, a member of a curious religious sect called the Epiphany People.
Obviously from the start of the book you know Eunice has committed the crime but the build up to how it occurs is gripping &, as the cover blurb says, Rendell's "psychological insights are so absorbing"
All-in-all an excellent read which felt like I was reading an account of an actual crime. "It will be an amazing achievement if she ever writes a better book" said the Daily Express of this little gem which was actually written back in the 1970's.
