A suspenseful take on the upstairs/downstairs genre, The Saint Zita Society is an expertly plotted tale of residents and servants on one block of a posh London street.
Life in Hexam Place is not as placid as it appears. Henry, valet to Lord Studley, is sleeping with both the Lord’s wife and his university-age daughter. Montserrat, the Still family’s au pair, is helping to hide Mrs. Still’s affair with an actor. June, housekeeper to a princess of dubious origin, is hard at work forming a “society” for servants to address complaints about their employers.
Meanwhile, a disturbed gardener, Dex, hears a voice in his mobile phone that gives him god-like instructions which could endanger the lives of all who reside in Hexam Place.
An astonishing 45 years after publication of her first Inspector Reginald Wexford novel, From Doon With Death, Ruth Rendell, remains one of the foremost crime writers of her generation. She is also known as the psychological thriller writer Barbara Vine, and – since her elevation to the UK's House of Lords – as Baroness Rendell of Babergh.
