The St. Zita SocietyLarge Print - 2012
Henry, the handsome valet to Lord Studley, is sleeping with both the Lord's wife and his university-age daughter. Montserrate, the Still family's lazy au pair, assists Mrs. Still in keeping secret her illicit affair with a television actor - in exchange for cash. June, the haughty housekeeper to a Princess of dubious origin, tries to enlist her fellow house-helpers into a society that would address complaints about their employers.
The St. Zita Society is Ruth Rendell at her brilliant best. Called the best mystery writer in the English-speaking world (Time), she has won nearly every award for mystery writers, including three Edgars.
