Martin Urban is a quiet bachelor with a comfortable life, free of worry and distractions. When he unexpectedly comes into a small fortune, he decides to use his newfound wealth to help out those in need. Finn also leads a quiet life, and comes into a little money of his own. Normally, their paths would never have crossed. But Martin's ideas about who should benefit from his charitable impulses yield some unexpected results, and soon the good intentions of the one become fatally entangled with the mercenary nature of the other. In The Lake of Darkness, Ruth Rendell takes the old adage that no good deed goes unpunished to a startling, haunting conclusion.

Author Bio
Ruth Rendell
Born Ruth Barbara Grasemann, Ruth Rendell began writing at an early age and finished her first novel at age 15. However, it took nearly 20 years before she published her first novel, "From Doon with Death", in 1964. This novel introduced the main character in what would become a series of mystery novels set in Sussex, England. These books star Chief Inspector Reginald Wexford of Scotland Yard, who uses keen psychological insight to ferret out the perpetrator of each crime he investigates. In recognition of her talent as one of England's most renowned and prolific crime writers, Rendell was named Baroness Rendell of Babergh and became a member of the House of Lords in 1997.
