Rendell’s award-winning novels include A Demon in My View (), A Dark-Adapted Eye (), and King Solomon’s Carpet (). Her /5(10).   A DARK-ADAPTED EYE is the first Barbara Vine book, the first of a long line of excellent novels that showed Ruth Rendell's ability to craft stories superior even to her more conventional mysteries.

If you could sum up A Dark-Adapted Eye in three words, what would they be? This book is often rated as Ruth Rendell's best, and I agree.
