Acknowledged as one of today's premier mystery writers, Ruth Rendell has won three Edgar Awards and four Gold Dagger Awards. She received the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America and was awarded the Commander of the British Empire. Among her most popular books are those in the Inspector Wexford series. Harm Done presents the inspector with a most volatile challenge: the various guises of domestic abuse. The residents of a shabby housing complex in the London suburb of Kingsmarkham are furious. A convicted pedophile, released from prison, has returned to their community. At the same time, two young women disappear, each returning several days later with little memory of where she has been. As Wexford investigates, Kingsmarkham is rocked by violence and murder. To prevent further harm, the inspector must coax some surprising motives from the reluctant suspects. Narrator Davina Porter gives an absorbing performance of Rendell's finely-crafted, suspenseful work. Download and start listening now!


Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 7/16/2011

    " THis is an Inspector Wexford Mystery. I Really enjoyed this book. The story is very current in its topic of spousal abuse. There were so many things going on in this community at the same time that it was a little confusing but very enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lizzie | 3/28/2011

    " An excellent mystery by my favorite mystery writer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Al | 3/18/2011

    " Once you have read a few Inspector Wexford novels you feel as though you personally know him.
    This book, while well-written, had a predictable ending although it was a long time getting there.....
    Easy enjoyable reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paulette | 1/20/2011

    " I really liked this novel. Very psychological and great ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carmen | 3/9/2010

    " Wexford has several cases going on at once: a pedophile who is released to society, but the neighborhood won't accept him, a young teenage girl gone missing, and a toddler gone missing. Somehow he solves them all. Two are predictable, but one is not. I never saw this one coming. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 2/10/2010

    " Always good to read procedural mysteries while traveling. This one was about domestic violence which was eerie since I was working on that issue in Manipur, India but still good. Insp Wexford's relationship with his daughter upsets me a bit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha | 11/13/2009

    " One of Rendell's best--interweaving of all the folks in the public housing project--the illogical decisions, the grudge holding--all secondary to the main plot. Lots of characters, even minor ones well rounded. Closely seen detail minutely rendered. This is what good fiction writing is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 8/25/2009

    " Good read. Well written. Disappointed with ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 6/23/2009

    " A little too much going on in this one for me...and then not enough twist in the end. Language. I would try another of hers with a better plot line. "
