With floods threatening both the town of Kingsmarkham and his own home and no end to the rain in sight, Chief Inspector Wexford already has his hands full when he learns that two local teenagers have gone missing along with their sitter, Joanna Troy. Their hysterical mother is convinced that all three have drowned, and as the hours stretch into days Wexford suspects a case of kidnapping, perhaps connected with an unusual sect called the Church of the Good Gospel. But when the sitter's smashed-up car is found at the bottom of a local quarry - occupied by a battered corpse - the investigation takes on a very different hue.

For her 19th Chief Inspector Wexford mystery, Ruth Rendell tells a story that is as taut and atmospheric as anything she has ever written. Ruth Rendell has won many awards, including the Crime Writers' Association Cartier Diamond Dagger. Download and start listening now!

    " My first Inspector Wexford and first Rendell. The plotline had me turning the pages but I didn't like the ending. I found the writing a little old-fashioned and sanctimonious. "

    " I think it's one of Rendell's best. It kept me guessing and reguessing. It's not gentle. It's not "cozy". And I love it. "

    " Great mystery - loved the characters. Didn't realize that this is a series and looking forward to reading other Wexford tales. "

    " Initially I found the flood theme kind of monotonous but really wanted to find out the story behind the children's disappearance. I also got caught up in the relationship between Wexford's daughter and the dubious boyfriend. So this book definitely kept my attention and made me want to get back into reading Ruth Rendell's books. "
