Inhaltsangabe: Larry Mann, a lonely old lodger in a north London boarding house, is delighted when Amanda moves in downstairs. Desperate for companionship, he brings her gifts, fixes her drinks--makes her want to like him. Amanda is too kind-hearted to hurt Larry's feelings. And when Amanda's lover begins to spend long and passionate weekends with her, Larry becomes troubled and afraid--afraid of losing her, afraid of his own dark past. Martin's Press.
Rezension: Ruth Rendell raved about this perfectly tuned debut thriller when it was first published in 1995, and it's not hard to see why: the story of a friendly neighborhood psychotic who takes a dangerous fancy to a new tenant in his London boarding house is very much in Rendell's grand tradition. Penelope Evans's ear for the self-deception of the emotionally deprived is so good that you'll find yourself cringing from the first page. Her protagonist Larry Mann tells us about his growing passion for quiet little Amanda Tyson, and as the story progresses we learn to what creepy lengths he is prepared to go to keep her near him.
