Love Ruth Rendell!

Anything Ruth Rendell writes is a great read. When I first discovered Ruth Rendell I thought of her as a female Alfred Hitchcock. Her stories are unique, never dull and will turn you on your head at times. She writes about situations you would consider a dark thought if they were yours. Her characters are developed gradually and at the end you understand why they are as they are. I have read everything Ruth Rendell has written and can't wait for her next book.

Dark Hole

Old soldiers may just fade away, but apparently not so Reginald Wexford. Retired as a chief inspector, free to read and enjoy his leisure, now that he also has access to a second home in London, he is chomping at the bit. When he gets a phone call from Tom Ede, now a detective superintendent, asking him to act as a consultant on an unusual case, he jumps at the chance.

The police investigation is at a standstill. Four bodies were discovered down a coal chute, three apparently there for more than a decade, another just a couple of years. Who are they? Why hadn’t they been discovered before? Why were they murdered, and who killed them? Painstakingly, Wexford pursues each elusive “clue,” logically and doggedly. Just as important is his intuition, which propels him forward, conjuring new theories and assisting his analysis.

Artfully written, the author provides a sweeping view of London as Wexford follows the various paths leading to solving the mystery. Especially poignant is a side story involving Wexford’s daughter.

Recommended.
