By Ruth Rendell
This collection of long and short stories probes the patterns of everyday life to pinpoint the frailties, the desires of deception, and the guilty secrets of human beings. It ends with "The Strawberry Tree", a novella-length tale of lost innocence set on the island of Majorca.

This was an enjoyable collection of stories, sent to me by a very good friend. Definately worth reading.
