A Judgement in Stone by Ruth Rendell

Four members of the Coverdale family – George, Jacqueline, Melinda and Giles – died in the space of fifteen minutes on the 14th February, St Valentine’s Day. Eunice Parchman, the housekeeper, shot them down on a Sunday evening while they were watching opera on television. Two weeks later she was arrested for the crime. But the tragedy neither began nor ended there…

An early excellent crime mystery by Ruth Rendell which starts with the memorable explanation of the premise: “Eunice Parchman killed the Coverdale family because she could not read or write”.

A shocking warning of the dangers of exceptional literacy.
