Ruth Rendell gave us some of the finest crime novels of all time.
“When Ruth Rendell died on Saturday, May 2, it meant that we had we lost two of our finest crime writers in less than six months. Ruth and P.D. James, who died last November, were good friends, though they sat on opposite sides of the House of Lords.

Without them, crime writing today would not be as vibrant, as exciting or as relevant as it is.”
