On the website I also found a review of NO TIME FOR GOODBYE by Linwood Barclay, which I have bought but am yet to read.
There is also a good page about Ruth Rendell with particular reference to NOT IN THE FLESH which was a featured book in December 2007.

You can also tell them what your favourite book for 2007 was.

By the way currently I'm reading Carol O'Connell's SHARK MUSIC. The alternative US title was FIND ME. The book's imagery is having quite a surreal effect on me, but more of that after I've finished.
