  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barb | 12/17/2013

    " Great story for mystery lovers. Twists and turns make for a surprising ending. I read something about Ruth Rendell when her newest book came out and wanted to learn more about her. This book is quite British reminding me of that detective series on PBS. If you love mysteries, you'll love this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 11/16/2013

    " Chief Inspector Wexford is investigating the murderer of a housewife in the parking lot of a shopping vented when his daughter's car is bombed. The book is a psychological mystery. I like the study of characters and their motives. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 11/2/2013

    " If you like Christie-style mysteries, you will love Rendell's works. Ah, Englishness and clues! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Felisa Rosa | 1/14/2013

    " Ruth Rendell is an excellent writer with an extremely dark take on the human condition. This is one of her better books, I think. Satisfyingly creepy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Florence Primrose | 1/10/2013

    " Inspector Wexford, once again is involved in an unlikely death, while his daughter is part of a protest and a bomb nearly kills the Inspector. Another good English mystery. "
