Edgar Award Finalist: In London, a missing child unites three mothers in grief, madness, and murder.   When Benet Archdale was a young girl in North London, her mother, Mopsa, made her nervous. The woman was unsound, and posed ever-present dangers. Yet Benet understood her sickness and forgave her threats. In pursuit of a relatively sane life as a novelist and loving single parent, Benet has since kept Mopsa at a distance. But it's not only the sudden death of Benet's two-year-old son that shakes her safe world. It's the past. Mopsa has returned to be at her inconsolable daughter's side. Nurturing, rational, and seemingly cured, Mopsa is going to do everything she can to ease Benet's grief.   Then, on the other side of town, the child of a barmaid has gone missing. Authorities fear the search can't end well. As Benet and Mopsa are drawn into the disappearance, the secrets, lies, and desperation of three mothers will converge--by chance and by design. For them, it's a crime that is at once a delusion, an escape, and a nightmare.   "No one surpasses Ruth Rendell when it comes to stories of obsession, instability, and malignant coincidence," says Stephen King of this New York Times-bestselling author, and all three come into play in this novel, a winner of the Crime Writers' Association Silver Dagger Award. A classic of psychological suspense, The Tree of Hands was adapted twice for the screen: first in 1989, as Innocent Victim starring Lauren Bacall and Helen Shaver; then again in 2001, for the French film Alias Betty.… (mer)

gave me nightmares. ( )

This is one of Ruth Rendell's better works. I love how characters are introduced who seemingly have no relationship to other characters then all plotlines are brought together seamlessly and effortlessly. What do a daughter's grief, her mother's madness, an unfit mother and a kidnapping all have in common? Benet has suffered though her mother's mania all her life and just when she finally is at peace her mother turns her world upside down again.
Great read! ( )

RR has done it again. I loved how the sub-plots came together letting the reader predict just enough to feel good, but still be surprised. I think I always wanted Jay to be able to stay with Benet and not have to go back to that sadistic bitch Carol, even though I felt sorry for the unfair treatment of her boyfriend, Barry. The scene where he’s attacked and beaten by those “bikers”, is riveting. I felt so outraged at the injustice. In the end when Benet has to give up her love for Ian, I don’t feel the sacrifice is too great, after all, how close can they be when they haven’t really shared anything.

Once, when Benet was about fourteen, they had been in a train together, alone in the carriage, and Mopsa had tried to stab her with a carving knife.
