Softly sketched disarmingly rendered but a knockout Unassuming round table of characters mystery sifts a lot of dissimilar layers and keeps going Part of the beauty here is watching an intentionally tipsy narrative gathering all threads toward the center and then convening for a moment only to unravel outwards again Broadly disparate lives interact confront fracture and repair along the course of the telling here Rendell is by now a past master of the art of shuffling character narrative direction in alternating chapters setting all participants reeling toward some unseen unknowable rendezvous With the only guarantee being that they ll all somehow interlock at some pointNothing lurid or bloody all in all a restrained tour of an unpredictable landscape all anchored nicely with the frame or spine really of the Portobello Road and its environs This brings to mind Polanski at the peak of his form or maybe classic Hitchcock so it is cinematic though not in scope or sweep terms but in pacing and editorial precision And it comes across as something Rendell did in between crossword puzzles unassuming unspectacular Character atmosphere timing pace This is head and shoulders above anything being written in the mystery genre that I know of and beautifully understated at that Five stars
