From one of the most remarkable novelists of her generation ("People") comes a psychologically thrilling novel about the eccentric inhabitants of a London apartment building, the secrets they keep, and how knowing too much about one''s neighbors might be deadly.
Annotation:
Critically acclaimed and much respected British novelist Ruth Rendell delivers a provocative psychological thriller with TIGERLILY'S ORCHIDS. Stuart Font has just moved into a new London flat, and to celebrate he throws a party, inviting all the people in the building. When disaster strikes at the party, the curious cast of characters gets thrown together. Personal secrets come to light as new relationships are formed--and all the while a murderer lurks in their midst.
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.

Praise

Ruth Rendell's novels of London amount to a modern cultural history of the city....Now she turns her sharp powers of observation on to a small suburban block of private flats, very precisely located in the social scale, too far away from the centre to be really expensive, just a cut above council housing. Rendell charts the local changes in sharp detail: the closure of the local off-licence, the problems of Mr Ali's corner shop." - Jane Jakeman 08/20/2010

"Rendell builds her characters with such subtle strokes that its impossible to catch the moment when she begins to tear them down." - Marilyn Stasio 07/03/2011
