An enjoyable re-read after many many years
on 16 September 2016
A very enjoyable introduction to both Wexford and Burden and though they changed character slightly when Ruth Rendell decided to write more of their cases I can see George Baker and Christopher Ravenscroft right there.
A woman goes missing and her flustered husband has a job getting Burden to take him seriously. Then a body turns up and Wexford and Burden must dig deep into her past to find not only who did it but why.
