The author, recipient of the Cartier Diamond Dagger lifetime achievement award from the Crime Writers' Association, is a preeminent writer of psychological menace.  In this book, she explores the lives of a disparate group of people who inhabit a block of flats in a quiet London suburb and the effect that crime has on a community. The plot abounds with secrets and obsessions of the sort at which the author excels.
