Ruth Rendell delivers, always. The Rottweiler is no exception. This wasn't her best book, but it was, nonetheless, a very good book.
This is the usual murder mystery, set in London. I recently spent time in London and thoroughly enjoyed reading and recognizing the names of the streets. It made the story more vivid. Almost makes me want to go back and re-read other books that I've read that happen to be set in London.
There are several characters involved in this story. Maybe too many. I was a little disappointed with how some of the characters ended up. But it was fitting for the story, I guess.
I read this while working on my tan. If I'm going to be stuck in the Texas heat, I can't think of a better way to pass the day than out in my back yard with a book like this.
My recomendation: If you're a fan of murder mysteries, particularly those set in London, you'll probably like this.
