Adam and Eve and Pinch Me (Google eBook)
Minty’s boyfriend, Jock, was killed in the disastrous train wreck at Paddington, shortly after he borrowed all her savings. Now he has come back to haunt her. Zillah lost her estranged husband, Jerry, in that same accident. She is not convinced he is actually dead, but for reasons of her own decides not to pursue the matter. Fiona’s fiancé, Jeff, has simply disappeared–quite inexplicably since she was supporting him in style.
In her ingeniously unnerving new novel, Ruth Rendell deftly traces the connections among these women–and between them a series of vicious stabbings terrifying London. Adam and Eve and Pinch Me is a masterpiece of malice and psychological suspense.

Slow starter for a rendell but then hurries along and continues to accelerate till the ending. Thoroughly satisfactory psychological study of a schizophrenic character. Carry on ms rendell! Read full review

This was my first try with Ruth Rendell and I loved it. Such bizarre characters that lure you in and keep your interest. I thoroughly enjoyed it when I read it which was quite some time ago now. Might be worth a second read. Read full review
