The Death of Ruth [eBook]

Kata, Elizabeth2015
Molly Blake is a woman with a gruesome secret from which she cannot escape. A secret which lies buried beneath her husband's camellias – and the fear of its discovery will drive her to madness. John and Molly Blake are a quiet suburban couple leading a quiet suburban life. It comes as a shock to John when their happy relationship suddenly begins to break down. Why has a certain waspishness crept into Molly's voice? Why is she withdrawing from him? First published in 1981, The Death of Ruth demonstrates Kata's gift for compelling storytelling in this psychological thriller with a chilling twist.

Elizabeth Kata (1912–1998) was born in Australia and lived for many years in Japan. Married in Tokyo in 1937, she spent the last two years of the Second World War in internment. Her son was born just three weeks before the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. On being released she returned to Australia in 1947 with her infant son, where she embarked on a long and illustrious writing career. Her first novel, A Patch of Blue (originally published as Be Ready with Bells and Drums), was translated into eight different languages and made into an award-winning film. She wrote screenplays for both film and television, which were produced in Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States.
