A Rage over building a Road,
By A Customer
This review is from: Road Rage (A Chief Inspector Wexford Mystery) (Paperback)
England just like everywhere else in the first world has to continuously build more motorways and freeways to make sure traffic can get from one place to another. The road builders have come to Kingsmarkham where Chief Inspector Wexford resides and presides. Far be it for a senior police officer to join the ranks of the radical demonstrators and professional agitators but we are left in no doubt that Wexford does not approve of the destruction of countryside around his district. His wife Dora is not so restricted and openly joins the demonstrators. Then during the clearance of the proposed site a body is found so Wexford and Burden become deeply involved. As usual Rendell draws her characters as real people with genuine feelings although they may not all share the same opinions. This is particularly evident in the views of Wexford and Burden.
