A Dark-Adapted Eye by Barbara Vine

This psychological tale tells the story of the Longley sisters, two gentlewomen living in Suffolk around the 1950’s. Their genteel lifestyles and respectable exteriors serve as a perfect foil for what they do in secrecy, in the pursuit of power. There is more to this wily novel of love and murder between sisters than meets the eye.
Ruth Rendell (Barbara Vine) was born in London.
