A Sleeping Life\Leben mit doppeltem Boden, englische Ausgabe
On a sultry August evening, the bloody body of a middle-aged woman
is discovered beneath a hedge by a small boy. The woman turns out
to be Rhoda Comfrey, but there's no apparent motive.
Wexford's only hunch is that the clues to her murder must lie
in her solitary London life. But her existence there becomes
frustratingly impossible to trace.

"One of the best novelists writing today" -- P.D. James "The most brilliant mystery novelist of our time" -- Patricia Cornwell "Probably the greatest living crime writer in the world" -- Ian Rankin "[Wexford] has become an old friend who gets better with age" Herald "Rendell has quite simply transformed the genre of crime writing. She displays her peerless skill in blending the mundane, commonplace aspects of life with the potent murky impulses of desire and greed, obsession and fear" Sunday Times
Ruth Rendell is crime writing at its very best. The author of over 50 novels, she has won many significant crime fiction awards. Her first novel, From Doon With Death, appeared in 1964, and since then her reputation and readership have grown steadily with each new book. She has received major awards for her work; three Edgars from the Mystery Writers of America; the Crime Writers' Gold Dagger Award for 1976's best crime novel, A Demon in My View; the Arts Council National Book Award for Genre Fiction in 1981 for The Lake of Darkness; the Crime Writer's Gold Dagger Award for 1986's best crime book for Live Flesh; in 1987 the Crime Writer's Gold Dagger Award for A Fatal Inversion and in 1991 the same award for King Solomon's Carpet, both written under the pseudonym Barbara Vine; the Sunday Times Literary Award in 1990; and in 1991 the Crime Writer's Cartier Diamond Award for outstanding contribution to the crime fiction genre. Her books are translated into 21 languages. In 1996 she was awarded the CBE and in 1997 became a Life Peer.
