    " I find Ruth Rendell quite good for a mystery/crime/spooky read that draws one in. A decent light read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annfairfaxbaker | 2/1/2014

    " Typically intelligent but gentle Inspector Wexford mystery. Very relaxing summer read, perhaps best suited to Boomer ladies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen | 1/28/2014

    " Love a mystery and Rendell adds layers of description of the countryside, gardens and wildlife. Personalities galore and some with interesting character development. I had trouble seeing the mystery solution which underscores this story of many characters and twists and turns. Enjoyed it and read long one night to get to the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bruce | 1/10/2014

    " Readable, but a bit longwinded and lacking the spark that many of the books in Rendell's Wexford series have. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 1/5/2014

    " As always, I enjoy reading an Inspector Wexford mystery because he is such an interesting character. Ruth Rendell writes a tight mystery with just enough clues to keep me wound up in the troubles of her characters until the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Babete | 1/2/2014

    " Estranho, mas no bom sentido! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Selma | 12/8/2013

    " One of Rendell's best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sydney | 12/2/2013

    " Another thriller by Ruth Rendell. I really loved the other book l read of hers, and this one was also good, but not as clever as the other. There was a great twist at the end, and I still love reading about the British legal system. I will read more of hers in the future. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 9/10/2013

    " Not hard to guess and a slow journey to get there. Not Ruth Rendell's finest hour... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyrie | 8/2/2013

    " I really enjoy the way Rendell teases - making one think one knows the solution, then making one doubt, rethink, doubt again. I particularly like the way Wexford and his wife work together. Their marriage is amazing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 RJ | 3/16/2013

    " Things get personal when Inspector Wexford's wife Dora disappears mysteriously. A radical environmentalist group claims responsibility, while a group Wexford is sympathetic to is trying to stop a bypass from being built. Above average Rendell, also well dramatized in the TV production. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lili | 1/22/2013

    " 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. "

    " Rendell's books are all solid, well-written, and very British. Unfortunately, I seem to find all of her books tough to get into, and this one was no exception. Once it got going it was OK, but I can't say much more than that... "
