The house of stairs - Barbara Vine

 



2nd book read.

Barbara Vine was the pen name of Ruth Rendell. This is an excellent thriller with a great plot. Ruth Rendell was such a good writer and this book motors along with good plotting, structure and language.

A great book for the mystery/thriller genre.

4.5 out of 5 stars.

Confessions on the 7.45 by Lisa Unger


We are in lockdown 6 in Melbourne with no end in sight. I'm not going to get into politics, but, will say l'm fed up.

Books are going to be read to pass the time and l have started with a beauty. 

This is a very good mystery novel. I didn't guess the ending and that's always a good sign for me. The writing is crisp, the storyline strong and it all comes together nicely at the end.

4.5 out of 5 stars from me.
