Description

Once when Benet was about fourteen she and her mother had been alone in a train carriage - and Mopsa had tried to stab her with a carving knife.

It was some time since Benet had seen her psychologically disturbed mother. So when Mopsa arrived at the airport looking drab and colourless in a dowdy grey suit, Benet tried not to hate her.

But then the tragic death of a child begins a chain of deception, kidnap and murder in which three women are pushed to their psychological limit.

Winner of the Crime Writers' Association Silver Dagger in 1984 and shortlisted for the Mystery Writers of America Edgar Awards. Adapted into a hit thriller film starring Lauren Bacall.

display_descriptionA young boy dies, another goes missing, and one mother's choice will forever alter many lives When Benet's young son dies on the operating table, she cannot be comforted-not even by her mother who cares for a young boy just about the same age. Meanwhile, another mother's son goes missing, and police circle around possible suspects in what must be murder. These three mothers-the schizophrenic Mopsa, upwardly mobile Benet, and gold-digging Carol-become forever entwined by death, delusion, kidnapping, and murder, and one woman's loss becomes another's gain. With deft characterization and keen insight, Rendell presents a complex, real exploration of morality and a mother's love in this Crime Writers' Association Macallan Silver Dagger award-winning novel.
