    Rendell's Wexford in top form here!

    Ruth Rendell¿s Chief Inspector Wexford mysteries are important entries to the police procedural genre. This, the second of the series, is probably the book that cemented Rendell¿s decision to continue. The daughter of local artist Rupert Margolis hasn¿t been home in a few days, but her father isn¿t reporting her disappearance. No, instead, he is filling out inquirings for someone to help him manage his household in his daughter¿s stead! And then Wexford receives a note that says daughter Ann has been murdered, and the suspects name given. With his ever-present second in command Mike Burden, Wexford begins his investigation, characterized by methodical thinking and well-paced moving! The plot becomes ever so convoluted--but don¿t give up. Rendell is in complete charge (it¿s one of her longer Wexfords) and by the conclusion her logial thinking, clever plot execution, and expert character development have won the day. ¿Wolf to the Slaughter¿ is also perhaps one of Rendell¿s most suspense-filled books (of the Wexford series). A local hotel has been letting one of its rooms as a love nest, but when a man with a knife one evening gets through with it, it is a room of blood, violence, and death. But whose? There¿s no corpse to be found! Wexford and Burden take over and the pages turn automatically after this, as Rendell¿s heros leave no stone unturned--nor sheet unfurled! Rendell has published many other books that are not in the series (she also writes under the name of Barbara Vine) and, with each, she clearly knows what she¿s writing about--she¿s a master here. And the surprise ending is handled masterly, too!

    It was bad

    This tittle was not vary interesting. It was very predictable since the first page. I thought that this would be a more chalenging tittle but it is more of a 'Young Teen' tittle.
