Description

Another in the Inspector Wexford series by Ruth Rendell

Chief Inspector Wexford, injured in a car bombing, must rely. Another in the Inspector Wexford series by Ruth Rendell. I absolutely loved this, one of her best. In this one the good inspector is nearly blown up (early in the story, no spoilers here) and is rendered more than little under the weather, so his partner/sidekick fills in, Mike Burden. The mystery here isn't really who tried to kill the good inspector, but who killed a middle-aged woman found dead in a parking garage. There's a slew of potential leads and suspects, as well as red herr Another in the Inspector Wexford series by Ruth Rendell.

Ruth Rendell was a goddess of psychological mysteries and this Inspector Wexford novel is great. The motives are subtle, the atmosphere is seething with undercurrents of menace.

No one else writes psychological crime like Ruth Rendell. Detective Burden has a strong sense that the troubled young teacher who first discovered the body committed the crime. Day after day he brings the young man in for questioning. At first the young man is defiant, then reticent. Shortly the suspect looks forward to these meetings. He begins to think Burden is the only one he can talk to. The Veiled One is a very interesting take on the errors of police procedure. How can a book be funny, thought provoking and scary? Rendell does it over and over again.

This had every appearance of being a mainstream police procedural that, even if expertly written, would be entertaining for the duration of the time it took to read it, and then be forgotten quickly. Looks can be deceiving.

Recently I resolved to give Ruth Rendell's Wexford novels a fresh look. Somehow I had decided years ago that they were boring. So I began with the first of the series, From Doon with Death, which came out in 1964. It was an enjoyable mystery, a just the facts ma'am bare bones detective story, an introduction to Inspector Wexford that didn't reveal much about him.

Unable to find the second novel, Sins of the Fathers (Chief Inspector Wexford Mysteries, No. 2), I moved on to Wolf to the Slaughter. It was dreary and complicated and not very interesting. And Wexford's underling, Inspector Burden, was very annoying with his prim attitude. I didn't finish it.

But then I came across The Veiled One, which was well into the series, first published in 1988, so I abandoned the chronological approach. Inspector Burden is again an unattractive character, judgmental and narrow-minded. When Wexford is hospitalized with injuries, Burden has to take charge of a murder case and determines that one suspect is almost certainly the killer. Despite reservations expressed by both his wife and his boss, Burden sets his sights on extracting a confession from the suspect. This takes an unexpected and curiously satisfying turn.

I have enjoyed most of Ruth Rendell's stand-alone novels and her psychological thrillers written as Barbara Vine, but am now discovering that within what seems initially like the closer confines of the police procedural Wexford novels and its claustrophobic small village Kingsmarkham, she explores British social trends and topics of the day. So far, I'm finding the series a fascinating, if uneven, exploration of British social history, with mysteries thrown in for good measure.

First class mystery by one of my favorite authors. Ruth Rendell was a goddess of psychological mysteries and this Inspector Wexford novel is great. The motives are subtle, the atmosphere is seething with undercurrents of menace. Wonderful!

Ruth Rendell sometimes goes off the deep end with her characterizations but seldom or never in the Wexford series, which has now gone on for decades. This is a really challenging one. There are so many delightfully demented suspects. But it's the kind of plot where at the denoument you say "Oh my God - THAT was a clue?" Her polished prose is always a delight and her slightly ironic take on contemporary foibles refreshes the mental palate. Great Job.

Very good. British mysteries are my favorite. I did figure this one out mid-way as Burden acted out of character, I think. Wish these books would break away a bit from the standard outline. Want to tell them to be pioneers in writing and to cut a new path, move away from old ones - new girl detective, attractive, same questions to coroner at crime scene, etc. Wexford is great. Interesting family but prefer when family stays in background. Give me gritty, unemotional, uninterrupted detective work.

Wexford is one of those old fashioned detectives who works in his head and only lets one know right at the end. It is a gripping - if not long drawn out mystery. The only positives are the deeply involved human interactions and the interesting reasons why people may say what they say. His poor second in command - is also a lost soul who seems to have little idea of appropriate interrogation techniques. the story takes a long time to draw to a conclusion - and I do wish Ruth Rendell would know that her readers need some sort of hints to allay their fears of the endless mystery saga. however, all said and done - I was gripped for several days - reading this story - always hoping for some sort of resolution.

Police procedural, very complicated case, interesting, psychological. Murder in the shopping center parking lot.

Typical Ruth Wendall well written book.
I'm a new Wexford fan - could not put this one down. Engrossing mystery from beginning to end. Ruth Rendell is prolific, and sometimes she misses the mark (for me), but Inspector Wexford has chops, and I am eager to read more.
