GALLOWGLASS by RUTH RENDELL (writing as Barbara Vine)

A World Stage Premiere.
From the pen of one of the world's greatest thriller writers. When Sandor snatched little Joe from the path of a London tube train, he was quick to make clear the terms of the rescue. "I saved your life", he told the homeless youngster, "so your life belongs to me now".

Sandor began to tell him a fairy-tale: an aging prince, a kidnapped princess chained by one ankle, a missed rendezvous... But what did this mysterious story have to do with Sandor? Joe only understood his own role - he was a Gallowglass, the servant of a chief...

"Of all living writers, she can enter most convincingly into the criminal, or even pathological, mind" - John Mortimer Sunday Times
"A real valentine from hell" - Time Out
"Marvellously gripping....tense, compulsive and beautifully written" - Sunday Express
"A weird, black, compelling story about those who wish to serve, and those who use their subservience" - Antonia Fraser Sunday Times
"Gallowglass is RUTH RENDELL (Barbara Vine) at her best... it is compulsive reading; an unsettling narrative that casts eerie shadows into the unknown" - Woman's Journal
"Beautifully composed RUTH RENDELL writing as Barbara Vine has cast her fertile imagination into the realm of the fairy-tale, and come up with a present-day parallel encompassing obsession, delinquency and romance" - The Times Literary Supplement
