    A British police procedural and mysteryA fine book which provides a detailed police procedural mystery with many characters witnesses and suspects Along the way Ms Rendell explores feminism circa 1985 and evolving social attitudes but don't read it expecting a blanket endorsement of feminism or modern political correctness Political correctness changes too rapidly for a novel published in 1985 to meet the ever changing

    I read this book in a couple of sittings Rodney Williams disappears his misnamed wife Joy reports it Then it escalates to a murder investigation On the sidelines Burden’s second wife Jenny is having a baby which she does not want because its a girl WTF Wexford plods along methodically and there is a twist at the ending Although Sara the daughter says Rodney raped her he did not Instead Sara is killing him for money

    After a rather difficult beginning this book pleasantly surprised me and I really liked it I admit that the beginning did not interest me at all I mean I was interested in the blurb But the first three or four chapters I found rather boring and even abandoned this book for a long time I am very happy that I decided to come back to it because it turned out to be excellentA story that seems to be very simple at first the man does no

    This was my least liked of the Rendell books I have read to date and Ruth Rendell has been one of my favorite mystery authors So what was the problem exactly I would break it down to three separate complaints1 The cold unemotional mother figure and her subseuently damaged or dysfunctional offspring While this leads to an

    The absurd insulting ending to this book completely mitigates the decent novel that came before I would not recommend this book to anyone

    Ok this is the third 'vintage' Rendell I've listened to on audiobook and I think I'm done they're clearly wildly popular in my local library but I can't get over how dated and old fashioned they are This book was original

    First Ruth Rendell read for personal reasons Did not like the book nor the detective Even though i picked it up because i had been told that it was about a staunch feminist group functioning underground the book turned out to be of nothing of the sort There was no feminism at all On the contrary i found it very misogynistic and patriarchal in its story approach and even language The man who in the beginning of the book i

    This one has put me off Ruth Rendell and that's saying something I'll just have to keep in mind that it was written in 1985 and attitudes have changed a lot since then but her caricature of a militant feminist group is way over the top and ap

St inkling that this is simply another case of a bored middle aged man having run off with a younger woman However when Rodney Williams is found dead and another local man After a rather difficult beginning this book pleasantly surprised me and I really liked it I admit that the beginning did not interest me at all I mean I was interested in the blurb But the first three or four chapters I found rather boring and even abandoned this book for a long time I am very happy that I decided to come back to it because it turned out to be excellentA story that seems to be very simple at first the man does not return home turns out to be really complicated Like the life of a missing man itself which at first seems to us and Wexford the detective conducting the case very simple As the secrets are revealed everything gets and complicated and the whole thing takes a different turn every now and thenI really like when it is not clear what exactly happened and who is the perpetrator And this book than delivered it There are at least several possible scenarios of who killed Rodney Williams and each points to a different person who may be the killer They all had a motive and they all had an opportunity They are all eually suspicious I am really delighted with this All scenarios are eually probable and I couldn t wait to discover what really happened Which is trueI can not to get over the great characters They are all remarkable multidimensional and complicated Each is different and has its own secrets that we discover throughout the book Together they create an amazing collage of fascinating charactersIt all adds up to such a great whole that at the end I didn t even have any preferences about how this book should end whom I would like to see as a murderer I would be pleased with every solution they were all eually good But the one that is in the book is excellentHighly recommend this great story
