'Eunice Parchman killed the Coverdale family because she could not read or write.'

Eunice, the Coverdales' housekeeper, guns down four of her employers in the space of fifteen minutes one Valentine's Day. None of them suspected anything. Her motive remained hidden.

As the police investigate, Eunice schemes to escape the blame - desperate to preserve the terrible secret of her illiteracy. But Eunice's blindness to a crucial aspect of the world throws her plans into jeopardy...

A gripping tragedy of crime and class, widely regarded as one of Ruth Rendell's seminal masterworks and a crime fiction classic.

Rendall is always a good read. However, she overdid the psychological profiling. It yawned a bit.

The opening line of Ruth Rendell's A Judgment in Stone: "Eunice Parchman killed the Coverdale family because she could not read or write." It tells the reader the full unvarnished truth and yet raises an entire novel's worth of very complicated questions.
