The dazzling new novel from Ruth Rendell. When the bones of two severed hands are discovered in a box, an investigation into a long buried crime of passion begins. And a group of friends, who played together as children, begin to question their past.

'The Girl Next Door is vintage Rendell and a perfect celebration of her half-century. Shes so effortlessly prolific that its easy to take her for granted; we assume that if we miss one of her books, therell be another one along in a minute. This novel, however, reminded me of the singularity of Ruth Rendells talent, her effortless mastery of language and her uncanny genius for mapping a criminal mind.' The Times

For Woody, anger was cold. Cold and slow. But once it had started it mounted gradually and he could think of nothing else. He knew he couldnt stay alive while those two were alive. Instead of sleeping, he lay awake in the dark and saw those hands. Anitas narrow white hand with the long nails painted pastel pink, the mans brown hand equally shapely, the fingers slightly splayed.'

Beneath the green meadows of Loughton, Essex, a dark network of tunnels has been dug. A group of children discover them. They play there. It becomes their place.

Seventy years on, the world has changed. Developers have altered the rural landscape. Friends from a half-remembered world have married, died, grown sick, moved or disappeared.

Work on a new house called Warlock uncovers a long buried grisly secret. And a weary detective, more preoccupied with current crimes, must investigate a case of murder.

In all her novels, Ruth Rendell digs deep beneath the surface to investigate the secrets of the human psyche. The interconnecting tunnels of Loughton in THE GIRL NEXT DOOR lead to no single destination. But the relationships formed there, and the incidents that occurred, exert a profound influence not only on the survivors but in unearthing the true nature of the mysterious past.
