"Ruth Barbara Rendell, Baroness Rendell of Babergh", Order of the British Empire/CBE, is an English author of thrillers and psychological murder mysteries.
Rendell's best-known creation, Chief Inspector Wexford, is the hero of many popular police stories, some of them successfully adapted for TV. But Rendell has also generated a separate brand of crime-fiction that explores deeply into the psychological background of criminals and their victims, many of them mentally afflicted or otherwise socially isolated. This theme is developed further in a third series of novels, written under her pseudonym "Barbara Vine".If you enjoy these quotes, be sure to check out other famous writers!
