Publisher Description

A woman investigates the shocking secrets that brought down her once proud family in this suspenseful Edgar Award winner from a New York Times–bestselling author.

Faith Severn has never understood why the willful matriarch of her high-society family, aunt Vera Hillyard, snapped and murdered her own beloved sister. But long after Vera is condemned to hang, a journalist’s startling discoveries allow Faith to perceive her family’s story in a new light.
 
Set in post–World War II Britain, A Dark-Adapted Eye is both a gripping mystery and a harrowing psychological portrait of a complex woman at the head of a troubled family. Called “a rich, beautifully crafted novel” by P. D. James, Time magazine has described its author as “the best mystery writer in the English-speaking world.”

A Dark Adapted Eye, Ruth Rendell

Very difficult to read. I realized it was written backwards as so many by Toni Morrison. I lost patience w. this rare style long ago - life's too short.

So I read the ending & was them entranced as I expect to be w. Ruth Rendell.
