In the eleven tales gathered in "The Fallen Curtain," Ruth Rendell the grande dame of the literary mystery lays bare the twisted inner workings of the unbalanced mind. Here are eleven tales of haunting psychological accuracy: the gesture that betrays a parent's madness, the childhood memory clouded with denial, the utterance that introduces the threat of violence in a situation as benign as a dinner date. Instantly engaging, maddeningly addictive, "The Fallen Curtain" testifies to the enduring talents of a master of the genre.
