Wexford is now retired but still can't stop being a copper--it's wonderful to visit with him and Dora, still one of fiction's most believable married couples, and their family. Wexford may be getting old but he still has his wits about him. Thoroughly enjoyed this book.

A many-layered and thoughtful novel with a great mystery story to make it an enjoyable read. Kind of sad that the Inspector retired but it makes for some fun new twists. A very good read.

While I thoroughly enjoy the Inspector Wexford mysteries, this book seems to peter out at the end, the solution and resolution were not decisive or satisfactory. Still, you would go a long way to find an interesting and enjoyable an author as Ruth Rendell.

Always, always, always, Ruth Rendell writes wonderful stories. For those of us who are 'Seniors', we love books with a good mystery, no foul language, respectful people in authority, etc. This tells nothing about the story--but for me, it tells the important part. Too many writers rely on expletives, and mayhem to further their story line---Ruth Rendell does not. Her stories are excellent and you are not assaulted with 'trash'. Loved it.

Well-written with believable characters and no gratuitous violence. Much better than I expected given that it's 24th in the series. I think I'll read much more in this series, beginning with numero uno.

Wexford,retired, is awkward and rings a little false. Well told cosy. May be time to use Burden's view.

Although it's somewhat entertaining, this is not a great exemplar of Rendell's mystery-writing prowess. I'd suggest that readers try some of her earlier Inspector Wexford mysteries. by aj west

One of my favorite mystery writers and favorite characters. This is a late-day story of an older but still wise Wexford. Not just for fans, but they shouldn't miss it.

The book was full of twists and turns, making it difficult to figure out just "who did it." This always makes for enjoyable reading.

Another psychological thriller from The Master, Ruth Rendell. I love the Inspector Wexford novels and have read them for years. This one does not disappoint. You may also like: Peter James, Val McDermid and Peter Robinson.

I have read all the Wexford series and find it difficult to believe this one was written by Rendell! The characters are flat and unrecognizable from the earlier books in the series. I didn't even finish the book I was so disappointed. Wexford retired in the previous book and this book is so poorly written it is like someone created very unpleasant characters in Wexford, et al.
