Review

'One of the best novelists writing today.' (P.D. James)

'Ruth Rendell has quite simply transformed the genre of crime writing. She displays her peerless skill in blending the mundane, commonplace aspects of life with the potent murky impulses of desire and greed, obsession and fear.' (The Sunday Times)

'Rendell never fails to come up trumps, and her millions of admirers will eagerly consume this offering as they have all the others.' (The Irish Times)

'A firm grasp of social concerns ensure that her novels are reflective of our own times, as well as hugely absorbing.' (The Times)

'This is Rendell on cracking form, with the entire accoutrements one expects from her.' (The Good Book Guide)

I cannot believe I am the first to review this but being a fan of the television series I wanted to read it and see how they compared. I found this story very good and more of an in depth character picture of Mike Burdon and Reg Wexford seemed to have a smaller role in this book. I could see that both characters had transferred to screen very well keeping many of the traits in the book. Mike's wife Jean had died and he was not coping with the changes this had imposed. The investigation of the death of a girl and the disappearance of a boy take on a personal interest and a love interest that brings Mike into contact with a most alternative lifestyle. Reg relies on Mike and is there to offer sometimes gruff support but most genuinely. Ruth Rendell originally had this published in 1971 and this paper back is easy to read as the print is a good size and to be honest once I started reading I had to get back into it as soon as I could. I will certainly read more of Ruth Rendell's books.

This short(ish) early Wexford novel is a bit of a mixed bag. There is a 'murder mystery' of course but in many ways, that is the least interesting or satisfying thing about this book. What really makes this worth reading is the excellent portrait of Inspector Mike Burden at a crisis point in his life. One gets the impression that Rendell really enjoyed getting her teeth sunk into this juicy, emotional subplot and it works astonishingly well. The characters surrounding Burden are equally well drawn and interesting, the two ladies in his life superbly contrasted. I have to say that until this book, I was not particularly fond of Wexford's subordinate and although he is often unlikeable in this one too, he is ultimately portrayed very sympathetically.

As suggested above, this book could have worked pretty well without the 'murder mystery' which almost becomes a subplot and, to be honest, its not one of Rendell's best. At one point Wexford says he doesn't like co-incidences but there are FAR too many here! Rendell DOES play fair and the clues are all there but this is another of her works (the earlier books are sometimes guilty of this) where the murderer is not given enough space to develop as a real character and I felt slightly cheated. Also, strangely for a book which deals with the murder and disappearance of children, it remains oddly uninvolving in that respect. Stella Rivers was twelve years old but she might as well be twenty two from an 'emotional impact' point of view.

For the mystery alone, this might have scored a 3 or even 2 star but the Burden subplot (which is really the main plot) elevates it to 4 for me. Its a nice foretaste of the best of the standalone thrillers.

A typical Wexford read enjoyable to the end, surpised about Mike Burton social life, with a twist in the tail!!

Well written Wexford novel with lots of suspense and a good twist at the end - not what you are expecting.
