Tigerlily's Orchids

Ruth Rendell: Tigerlily's Orchids (USA 2012)

From the Publisher:
IS IT DANGEROUS TO KNOW TOO MUCH ABOUT YOUR NEIGHBORS?
When Stuart Font throws a housewarming party, he invites all the residents of his new building -- among them, three flippant young girls, a lonely spinster, a man with a passion for classical history, and a woman determined to drink herself to death. He definitely does not want his girlfriend, Claudia, in attendance, as he would also have to invite her lawyer husband. But careful planning can only get a person so far. As it turns out, this party will be one everyone remembers.

Meanwhile, living in a town house opposite Stuart's building, in reclusive isolation, is a young, beautiful Asian woman known as Tigerlily. As though from some strange urban fairy tale, she emerges infrequently to exert a terrible spell.

In Tigerlily's Orchids, Ruth Rendell has written a darkly humorous and psychologically thrilling novel about the eccentric inhabitants of a London terrace -- about the secrets they keep, and what they will do to hide them.

Tigerlily's Orchids

Ruth Rendell: Tigerlily's Orchids (UK 2011)

From the Publisher:
When Stuart Font decides to throw a house-warming party in his new flat, he invites all the people in his building. After some deliberation, he even includes the unpleasant caretaker and his wife.

There are a few other genuine friends on the list, but he definitely does not want to include his girlfriend, Claudia, as that might involve asking her husband.

The party will be one everyone remembers. But not for the right reasons. All the occupants of Lichfield House are about to experience a dramatic change in their lives...

Living opposite, in reclusive isolation, is a young, beautiful Asian woman, christened Tigerlily by Stuart. As though from some strange urban fairytale, she emerges to exert a terrible spell. And Mr and Mrs Font, the worried parents, will have even more cause for concern about their handsome but hopelessly naive son.

Darkly humorous, piercingly observant of human behaviour, Ruth Rendell has created here another compelling fable of our lives and crimes.

Ruth Rendell: Tigerlily's Orchids. Arrow, ISBN 9780099550631 (August, 2011), 340 p., £7.99.

From the Publisher:
Is it dangerous to know too much about your neighbors? In Tigerlily's Orchids, Diamond Dagger Award-winning Ruth Rendell has written psychologically thrilling novel about the eccentric inhabitants of a London terrace -- about the secrets they keep, and what they will do to hide them.

When Stuart Font decides to throw a housewarming party in his new flat, he invites all the people in his building -- three flippant young girls, a lonely spinster, a man with a passion for classical history, and a woman determined to drink herself to death. After some deliberation, he even includes the unpleasant caretaker and his wife. He considered inviting a few other friends, but he definitely does not want his girlfriend, Claudia, in attendance, as he would also have to invite her lawyer husband. As it turns out, the party will be one everyone remembers.

Living in a townhouse opposite Stuart's building, in reclusive isolation, is a young, beautiful Asian woman known as Tigerlily. As though from some strange urban fairytale, she emerges infrequently to exert a terrible spell. And Stuart's parents, always worried about their handsome, hopelessly naive, and undermotivated son, have even more cause for concern.

Darkly humorous, piercingly insightful about human behavior, Ruth Rendell, whom People magazine calls "one of the most remarkable novelists of her generation," has created an extraordinarily compelling story of our lives and crimes.
