Ruth Rendell R.I.P

We are very sad to hear of the death of Ruth Rendell. Our thoughts and prayers are with her friends and family.

Together with the recent loss of her close friend P.D James, this feels like the end of a second golden age in the world of crime fiction.

Ian Rankin said of Ruth Rendell, ‘She is probably the greatest living crime writer in the world.’

Like millions of fans, we feel immensely grateful for the pleasure her books have given us and always will.

We shall not look upon her like again.

  1. Oh no! I knew she’d been quite ill. Having just returned from PD James Memorial, it’s bittersweet to think of the two of them having tea together.,,

  2. It’s terribly sad, we’re very lucky that she gave us all so many superb novels.
