The Minotaur - a thrilling novel from the bestselling queen of crime Barbara Vine

Kerstin Kvist enters crumbling Lydstep Old Hall to live with the Cosways and to act as nurse to John: a grown man fed drugs by his family to control his lunatic episodes. But John's strangeness is grotesquely mirrored in that of his four sisters who roam the dark, mazy Essex country house under the strict gaze of eighty-year-old Mrs Cosway.

Despite being treated as an outsider, Kerstin is nevertheless determined to help John. But she soon discovers that there are others in the family who are equally as determined that John remain isolated, for sinister reasons of their own ...

'The reader is kept in suspense throughout . . . vintage wine from the Rendell vine' Independent

'The Cosway family is a mesmerizing creation... I rushed through the last pages' Penelope Lively, Sunday Times

'Stealthy, credible, ingenious and addictive' Literary Review

'The Rendell/ Vine partnership has for years been producing consistently better work than most Booker winners put together' Ian Rankin

The Minotaur is a modern masterpiece of the crime genre and will leave you gripped from the first page to the last. If you enjoy the novels of P.D. James, Ian Rankin and Scott Turow, you will love this book.
