Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have to admit that I have never read any of the Chief Inspector Rex Wexford books but I have a certain knowledge about him because of his popularity.

He has now retired and is asked, after a chance meeting with Detective Superintendent Tom Ede in the street, if he was interested in working on a case as an adviser. Ede was having difficulties and knowing about the reputation of Wexford, he feels that he would be a great help. Wexford takes little time to accept the opportunity - he is missing his work.

He and his wife spend part of their time in London living in a coach house owned by his daughter (who is an actor) and the rest of the time at his own home. The case will be in London and much to his surprise, he soon discovers how much he enjoys walking particularly now he no longer has a police car to take him places.

Tom Ede explains that the bodies of two women and one man have been found in the coal hole in an house in St John's Woods. The house has had several owners and one of the women might have lived there. The man has expensive jewellery in his pocket possibly belonging to one of the former owners. But none of the bodies carry any identification.

Wexford is excited and pleased to have been asked to help. The story continues with the investigations but it also includes references to his family life - how his wife is coping with the fact that he is now no longer employed but is happily working as an adviser to the police; what happens to one of his daughters when she finishes a love affair and Wexford's relationship with a former colleague.

Nigel Anthony reads the unabridged story and an excellent job he makes of it too. One talks about books and says they can't be put done and in this case the CDs are quickly replaced until one hears the end of the story. Something to listen to on a long car journey or long winter evening.
