There is quite a group of domestic workers who live in the area, and the leader, June has named the group, 'The St. Zita Society. Much is discussed, but not many problems are solved. Each of the workers have their own issues and personal lives. Lots of sex, infidelity, social ambitions, homosexuality, accidental death and then murder. Of course, this is a Ruth Rendell novel, and mystery and murder are at the fore. These are ordinary people who live their lives the best and the worst they can. Some take advantage of others, but all in all a group like any other. This is more of a social satire than a mystery,
By the end of the novel all the characters have their lives in some sort of shape, alive or dead. The ending was most satisfying to me. The moral of the story seems to be the cell phone and how we come to worship it in its many forms. The next time you receive a message from on-high, think twice about it.

THE FACE OF TRESPASS
Put on by Cunning, An Unkindness of Ravens
The eventual resolution is not really a resolution, which I can accept, but the surely an editor could have helped get the details right even if the author didn't.
This is by no means one of her better books, but the constantly tightening screws of the plot kept me to the finish.
