Thirteen Steps DownLiving in a decaying house in Notting Hill Mix Cellini is obsessed with 10 Rillington Place where the notorious John Christie committed a series of foul murd. Having read four or five of Ruth Rendell's books thus far I am happy that she is a prolific author Not only has she been prolific but she has remained constant in the uality of her story telling in my experiencesThirteen 13 Steps Down is a stand alone psychological thriller that for me began very slowly My patience was rewarded as I delved further into the story Her plot is very much character driven which lent itself to the initial slow pace but drama begins to ensue before too long Much of the plot is the reader experiencing the protagonist's descent into sociopathy driven by obsessions and a childhood that created in him a cynical view of anyone other than himself and most certainly women in particular

Ruth Rendell’s Thirteen Steps Down is something of an amalgam of her earlier works – the antihero a self deluded sociopath who reminded me of a hapless version of Patricia Highsmith’s Tom Ripley In this case it is gym service engineer Mix Cellini who proves singularly reckless when it comes to the disposal of his victimsSet in Notting Hill London the narrative is written from alternating points of view Mix himself; his elderly battle axe of a landlady Gwendoline Chawcer; and Nerissa Nash a supermodel with whom Mix is fixated He is also obsessed with the exploits of the infamous local serial killer John ChristieWithout spoiling the plot I felt what ought to have been the main cause for suspense rather fizzles out – and indeed like most novels of this nature the crux for what it is worth occurs well before the endI suspect Ruth Rendell was not a great one for research; writing this at the age of 74 there emerges a gulf in her knowledge of all things gymnasia which undermines the authenticity of some passagesIf not the strongest of her standalone suspense novels I always felt happy to pick up from where I had left off I listened to the audiobook and that must be a plus point in its favour
