Ruth Rendell’s FROM DOON WITH DEATH Part Two: The body in the woods – The Curiously Specific Book Club
In part two, we persist in our search for Midhurst locations that match the events in Ruth Rendell’s first novel, FROM DOON WITH DEATH. We become increasingly bogged down, unable to make the book match the real world. So we try another approach. Could Kingsmarkham actually be somewhere else? Is Rendell playing games with us? Could she actually be thinking about somewhere a lot closer to home?
But having almost given up hope of finding any authentic locations, we go hunting for the wood in which the body of Mrs Parsons is dumped. Here, things are much more promising – and what is more, we manage to find a Royal connection. A cheeky one, no doubt, but a connection is a connection.
