Mary Jago had donated her own bone marrow to save the life of someone she didn't know. And this generous act led directly to the bitter break-up of her affair with Alistair. For him, it was as though her beauty had been plundered.

But the man whose life she had saved would change Mary's life in a way she could never have imagined.

I am loving Ruth Rendel aka Barbara Vine right now. Keys to the Street is the story of Mary Jago who performs an act of selflessness for someone she doesn't know only to be condemned for it by her abusive boyfriend Alistair. When the opportunity to escape from Alistair presents itself, Mary takes a housesitting job for the summer to think things through hoping to end her relationship once and for all. Soon she is surrounded by grisly murders of homeless people, an very strange dog walker and maybe experiences real love for the first time in her life.This is a great book, I loved how the characters eventually became tied together.

A mystery that stresses the people whose lives are impacted by the deaths. Mary Jago was an interesting character and I liked the evolution of her character as she got into relationships and out of relationships.

Gritty images wrapped in flowing prose pull the reader completely in and stay in the mind long after the book is finished.

This is a wonderful book. Engaging characters in a vital setting capture you as they reveal the story. This book sucks you in, and makes you think. A page-turner for all the right reasons.

The book revolves around two plots both of which is interesting. One is a murder mystery involving horrific deaths of street people. The other is the romantic life of Mary Jago. Ruth Rendell is an author who sets up her story lines and characters expertly. Well worth reading.
