Ruth Rendell's novels whether writing as Ruth Rendell or as Barbara Vine are rather variable in quality. Talking to Strange Men ranks with Asta's Book as one of my favourites. Though it has some mystery elements, it is more a psychological novel than a detective story, with obsession in various forms as a theme: the sexual obsessions of adults; the obsession children bring to their games; even the oddity of a man obsessed with a pet myna bird. There are two strands to the plot: in one rival groups of school children are playing an involved game of espionage; in the other an abandoned husband is struggling to rebuild his life. When the two intersect — when one of the adults starts modifying the childrens' secret messages — things come to a climax for two of the characters.
