Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lili | 2/4/2014

    " I have yet to read a poor Ruth Rendell mystery. in fact I have enjoyed reading them all. Not all at once but over the years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula | 1/18/2014

    " Really intricate mystery that turns out to have a fairly simple solution, but it really kept me guessing. I listened to the audio version read by Davina Porter, whose voice and interpretations I really like. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 1/11/2014

    " Death Notes is a short mystery packed with red herrings, dead ends and lose threads, all the elements of a good mystery. Then a realistic twist explains part of the mystery at the end. Somehow, though I claim realism and plausibility make for the best mysteries, I found this disappointing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hazel | 1/5/2014

    " Rather an odd story. Quite intriguing. Enjoyable but I felt it went a bit astray somewhere in the middle. However it came together at he end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Florence Primrose | 12/16/2013

    " I especially enjoyed this Inspector Wexford Mystery because it took a little different turn--questioning the identity of the one who inherited. And, of course, the victim played the flute as I did in my youth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roseann | 11/30/2013

    " I would have never figured this one out! Many twists and turns. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jordan | 11/27/2013

    " I read the UK edition on Kindle, "Put On By Cunning"...a title I like better than "Death Notes". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 10/5/2013

    " Good quick read. I'll read more "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ange | 9/24/2013

    " One of the earlier Inspector Wexford mysteries. Enjoyable reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daimen Vauban | 6/1/2013

    " Not a bad read but not as captivating as mysteries written by PDJames. Certainly an airplane book. Not much thinking but an entertaining distraction nonetheless. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 astrangerhere | 3/20/2013

    " bit of a letdown in Wexford lore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Felisa Rosa | 12/18/2012

    " One of the better Inspector Wexford mysteries, though the solution to the murder is a bit too intricate to be actually satisfying. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rita | 6/19/2012

    " 1981. Again, well written, but such a convoluted plot, the characters all seem cardboard to me, nothing comes alive. It does pass the time... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Ann | 2/1/2012

    " Interesting storyline, parts where boring, but; still kept my interest enough to finish the book. Glad I did, always a good mystery if you can't figure it out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey | 10/23/2011

    " Part mystery, part travelogue, Wexford travels the pacific coast highway in this one and even gets to visit the south of France. It was pretty fun to see a Brit's view of California. I quite enjoyed this one. Oh, and the mystery is satisfying too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arlene | 9/25/2011

    " I love Ruth Rendell. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 9/25/2011

    " I've been trying to read the books by authors that I like that I thought I'd missed, but keep finding that I've already read them. For some I re-read them anyway. This is one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra | 7/29/2011

    " Inspector Wexford mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda Patterson | 6/8/2011

    " Wexford investigates the death of a celebrated musician. This is a classic police procedural. A guaranteed 3/5 for easy holiday reading. Ruthe Rendell was becoming Barbara Vine here, and you can see the psychological thriller tendencies creeping in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 5/5/2011

    " Somehow I didn't include this in my list of Rendell's books I've read. I just reread it, and this isn't one of my favorite of hers. I liked enough parts to give it 3 stars. But for a wonderful Ruth Rendell read, be sure to pick up A JUDGEMENT (sic)IN STONE. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 4/7/2011

    " Good quick read. I'll read more
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 4/4/2011

    " Pretty run of the mill detective story with that plonker Inspector Wexford investigating the apparent death by mischance of an elderly flautist.

    There is a suspicion that his daughter who inherits is being played by an imposter. Rendell leads the reader up a garden path. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey | 2/4/2011
