1.0 out of 5 stars Dull and confusing, 8 Mar. 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Saint Zita Society (Hardcover)
I never thought that I would say this about a book by Ruth Rendell (who is my favourite author) but sadly this last offering is dull and confusing, with a weak plot which is nowhere near her usual brilliance. I struggled to get past chapter 3, with far too many characters and an extremely disjointed storyline. Her last 2 novels have been in the same vein; we are certainly seeing the decline of Ruth Rendell. If you want to read Rendell at her best, steer clear of this one and go for earlier works such as The Bridesmaid, A Sight for Sore Eyes, Adam & Eve & Pinch Me or any of the early Wexfords. Avoid this one at all costs!!

Thanks for the tip, The Bridesmaid.
Otherwise I have read all her Wexfords and love them. It's sad that RR's work has declined so much lately.

Hiya, have you read her new Wexford yet - no mans nightingale? I heard it was quite good but haven't read it myself yet!
