"'Chief Inspector Wexford is one of the most admirable presences in mystery fiction today and Ruth Rendell... retains her place of highest distinction in the field.' New York Times 'This is Miss Rendell's best yet' Observer"
In a vast, gloomy, overgrown London cemetery, a girl is found murdered. A girl with a name that isn't hers, and little else that is. A girl with no friends, no possessions and no past. Chief Inspector Wexford has been sent to London by his doctor for a rest - no late nights, no rich food, no alcohol and, above all, no criminal investigation. To add insult to injury, it is Wexford's own nephew, Howard, who is leading the massive investigation into the macabre mystery. Even though Howard and his subordinates might think he's out of his league, and even though his doctor wouldn't approve, Wexford can't resist just taking a look at things for himself...

This tedious, convoluted plot is finally resolved in a totally unconvincing fashion. Crime writers who have clearly run out of ideas often turn to this irksome device of revealing some minor, insignificant character as the culprit. This is not the first Ruth Rendell book I have read where she resorts to this practice. Some of her Wexford novels I have enjoyed, but this was a very poor offering.
