The Tree of Hands by Ruth Rendell

A bereft woman’s mother’s desperate act triggers a violent spiral affecting a whole community.

The Tree of Hands was lesser Ruth Rendell. It dates back to 1986 and she’s really grown as a writer since then. It definitely has her trademark nuanced characterizations but the story wasn’t as gripping as later works like The Rottweiler have been.
