    Not as interesting as the book cover suggests

    I've read a few of Ruth Rendell's novels. Some I've liked quite a bit; others not so much. This one falls in the latter category. Much of this story involves Wexler recalling events from his youth, but I began to tire of the author's constant references to the way things used to be as opposed to how they are now. There were also times when she seemed to feel it necessary to explain things too much to her American readership. For example, describing the autumn colors in her setting was fine, but then she adds that there are no reds in the leaves in England, and that you only find those in North America where they have maple trees. Who cares? The book cover is what drew me to read this one, but it really had nothing to do with the story. I may read more of her books, but I'll likely avoid the Inspector Wexler ones.
