One of hers that I really liked -

I found this a bit dull to be honest and it seemed to me that Rendell can't bring herself to leave Wexford behind so we now get Wexford as a private detective. Also I would recommend re-reading Rendell's A Sight For Sore Eyes first as this is a sort of sequel.

Retired from the police force, Wexford is asked to help work on a murder case involving 3 dead bodies found in an underground coal hole beside a house when the owner wanted to dig a basement for his house. We tediously follow not only the clues that Wexford leads us to as he solves the crime, but we also endure the unfortunate events surrounding his older daughter's love life. Many interviews with many characters whose interactions only become evident at the end and the continual reminder of Wexford's retirement status decreased the reading enjoyment for me. Even Wexford himself is tired of it all and yearns for a holiday to get away from it all. Hence my 3 stars for a top notch novelist's mystery.

Your really have to read A Sight for Sore Eyes to get any connection to this book. Even with this knowledge the book itself was just ok.
