    2. Another in the Inspector Wexford series by Ruth Rendell I absolutely loved this, one of her best.In this one the good inspector is nearly blown up early in the story, no spoilers here and is rendered than little under the weather, so his partner sidekick fills in, Mike Burden The mystery here isn t really who tried to kill the good inspector, but who killed a middle aged woman found dead in a parking garage There s a slew of potential leads and suspects, as well as red herrings and false leads [...]

    3. See what happens when you close shopping centers at funny hours, like 6 pm Dead bodies pop up in the parking lot It s the frustation of not being able to get dinner.This is the first Wexford book I read, and I enjoyed it very much It is what Miss Marple and Jessica Flecther should be.

    4. In my opinion, very, very few writers do this genre better than Ruth Rendell Every now and then, someone will compare another author to her, but, in my view, those comparisons have been dead wrong every time I m not a huge fan of Inspector Wexford He used to be far too arrogant for my taste, but over the years as I read of him, he grew on me I m almost up to like In this mystery he is not the main investigator on the case, and it s interesting to see how the case moves forward without his full [...]

    5. Chief Inspector Wexford investigates the estrangement of a middle age housewife at a car park of a supermarket In the meantime, he takes over the case after the explosion of a bomb in his car which was addressed to his subversive daughter.A lot of action in this book, as usual by any book written by Ruth Rendell.

    15. Can Wexford solve this strange mystery even though he must also recover from a car bombing incident Maybe Sgt Burden can help Or maybe Burden is going into a different direction altogether and becoming the victim of a dependent man who needs him to be a friendor a therapist PS I had to find out what the heck a garote is.

    26. On any other day when the body of a woman turns up in the underground car park of the main shopping center in Kingsmarkham Chief Inspector Reginald Wexford would quietly and methodically piece together all the elements of the case, breaking down alibis and ferreting out all the secrets people have squirreled away in the dark corners of their lives, ably assisted, or less, by Inspector Mike Burdern On this particular day, however, Wexford pulls out of the very same car park, before the discovery [...]
