Summary

She waits for him in the dark, her mind and body perfect, passive, until one day, when he goes to the cellar, and she is gone.

In A Demon in My View, Ruth Rendell creates a character as frightening as he is fascinating. Mild-mannered Arthur Johnson has never known how to talk to women. And his loneliness has perverted his desire for love and respect into a carefully controlled penchant for violence. One floor below him, a scholar finishing his thesis on psychopathic personalities is about to stumble - quite literally - upon one of Arthur's many secrets. Haunting and intelligent, A Demon in My View shows the startling results of this chilling alchemy of two very disparate minds - one pathological and the other obsessed with pathology.

Riveting Tale

This is another satisfying and riveting story, told by a master of the psychological mystery genre. Excellent performance by George Baker, who captured the essence of the ch
