The 24th Wexford whodunit has him coming out of retirement at the request of his old colleague Mike Burden (but unpaid) to investigate the murder of a mix-race female vicar – lots of expected prejudice there then! Ruth Rendell’s last couple of Wexford tales have not been up to her usual standard but this is more like her old style so Wexford fans rejoice, even if he does go on a bit about his ‘unofficial role’.
A Simon & Schuster audiobook. Simon & Schuster has a great book for every listener.
