Ruth Rendell has always excelled at creating a sense of place. In her latest novel, The Rottweiler, she focuses on a single house near Paddington Station, where the owner of an antiques shop supplements her income by taking in tenants. Rendell revels in showing how the city has changed in terms of race, class and wealth, and Inez Ferry's house in Star Street seems intended as a microcosm of contemporary London. Rendell takes a swipe at journalists in The Rottweiler, as they persist in using the nickname even after the police reveal that the murderer's trademark is not a bite but his habit of taking away a small object as a souvenir.

The first victim had bite marks on her neck so the London papers nicknamed her killer, the Rottweiler. The first victim had bite marks on her neck so the London papers nicknamed her killer, "the Rottweiler. He has been stalking the small and diverse London community of Lisson Grove, where Inez Ferry runs an antique shop frequented by a motley collection of eccentric individuals. When the Rottweiler's trinkets start showing up in the shop, suddenly, everyone Inez knows is a suspect, and the killer feels all too close.

Silver Globol
This is classic Rendell: a set of characters seemingly thrown together at random who eventually find their fates interwoven. The Rottweiler's main setting is a London building with a shop on the ground floor and flats on the three floors above. Inez owns the building and runs an antique shop there. She lives on the first floor, and three other tenants, with sundry hangers on and secrets on the next two. All of these people, plus customers, relatives, fiancees, et. al, wind in and out of the pages with their own little secrets, problems, and mysteries.

Although the book is primarily about a murderer and how he is eventually caught, there are many little subplots that are just as intriguing. Most of the characters, even the murderer, are likeable and amusing sorts. Rendell's policemen have a Keystone Kops quality about them in this book, which makes an interesting contrast to her superb Inspector Wexford series. Obviously not all of London's finest are all that fine!

I've been buying her books for years and I find her to be

one of the best there is. At times an aquired taste but she tackles many subjects and is

brillant at the little details and gets inside people like know

other. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for something different in the mystery/suspense vain and she just

makes London so real, so dead gloomy. A great book from a master story teller. Serial murder with a twisted psychogical edge with characters so real yet very flawed inside. She just

loves to lead us on..

Positives: Though not a terrific mystery - I eventually accepted the comedy and characters. At the end I really did care about most of these people. She always reinforces my belief that we barely resemble the 'rational man' of economics.

Deltas: Tried to tell a few too many tales within the novel.

Overall: Library book

The above-rated books are excellent, challenging, thought-provoking. I can never get enough of intelligently written, challenging books, be they crime or other fiction books. Very much in awe of Ruth Rendell/Barbara Vine.
Whitestone
Purchased as gift and person was pleased with it.
Said good mystery.
Laizel
Follows in the traditions of Rendell's crime fiction, with interesting/quirky characters and a very readable story. I only gave it three stars because I found it lacked the spine-chilling creepiness of some if her other books. Rendell fans will not be disappointed.

excellent service and product
I've read everything Rendell has written(including the Barbara Vines) and she is the best in the mystery genre and often transends it. She can therefore be forgiven for this total misfire---thin ,forced and utterly unconvincing. Her forte may well be creating fabulous villains but the one here is trite and uninteresting. I'm surprised so many of the reviews by readers who know and love her work are raves. I'm generally inclined to cut her a lot of slack
