The first Inspector Wexford. You can't beat Ruth Rendell for bringing shivers and chills. In every book no one is exactly what they seem.
Someone recommended Ruth Rendell's Inspector Wexford books to me, so I decided to start with the first one. It's not brilliant, but there's a familiar feel to the writing and the community she created, and I can see myself wanting to know more about the people in the book. I'll read on to the second, at least...
One of Rendell's earlier books, and every bit as well-written as her later ones. A seemingly plain, mild-mannered housewife is murdered. During Inspector Wexford's investigation, her secret past is discovered.
Wow, I really enjoyed this book. I have read many Ruth Rendell mysteries before and enjoyed them, but this one really is a step above. Whoever reads this next is in for a treat.
An older mystery; not bad.
