For awhile, the rock festival at Sundays went well. The sun shone, the bands played, and everyone - except a few angry neighbors - seemed to enjoy themselves. Then the weather changed. And in a nearby quarry, two lovers found a body that made even Inspector Wexford's stomach lurch....

Soon Wexford is investigating the links between a local girl gone bad and a charismatic singer who inspires an unwholesome devotion in his followers. Some Lie and Some Die is a devilishly absorbing novel, in which Wexford's deductive powers come up against the aloof arrogance of pop stardom.

    " Some really fantastic lines but less enjoyable than previous Wexfords. "

    " Not her best, but Rendell is always good. A folk festival turns into a baffling murder investigation for Inspector Wexford and Burden. "

    " I think maybe I need to take a break from Ruth for a bit to better appreciate her strengths. This particular novel has many of her hallmarks, but feels more dated given the setting--a seventies-era rock concert. The novel takes me back to old episodes of Ironsides and Hawaii 5-0 with the psychedelic camera work and the du. wacka, wacka sound track playing as the chief works his way throught the crime scene. As usual, Rendell uses an outside work to provide additional context to the mystery. This time it's the lyrics to a rock song created for the purpose. That thing got worked to death in the course of the story. As usual, the story focuses on an unstable female character, who in this novel has a Jim Morrison knock-off as her Svengali-like foil. "

    " Op het eerste gezicht levert het jaarlijkse rockfestival geen problemen op. Totdat een jong verliefd stelletje op hetzelfde terrein het verminkte lijk van een jonge vrouw in een rode jurk vindt. "
