The Lake of Darkness by Ruth Rendell, 1st/1st, 1980
London: Hutchinson, (1980). First edition. This is a very near fine copy. The dust jacket, designed by Terry Pastor, is generally in fine condition, but is faded at the spine which casts it down a grade. It has not been price clipped. The boards are free from chips and marks and the text blocks are bright and white throughout. Overall, this is a very near fine copy of an early title. Winner of the Arts Council National Book Award for Genre Fiction in 1981.
