The St. Zita Society by Ruth Rendell

When the servants of the residents of a tony London neighborhood get together to try to improve their collective lot, they have no way of knowing that their cozy way of life is about to explode–thanks to the secrets they’re all protecting.

The St. Zita Society took some time for me to warm up to it, mainly because there was no one I felt like I could connect with. But Rendell is such a brilliant writer that she kept me interested, and when it ended I was pleased with the masterful way she manipulated my sympathies. Plus the mystery itself is a fun one, because we know the identity of the murderer before it happens, but there’s still plenty of suspense and tension.
