Well written with an intriguing plot. Glad I've stuck with Inspector Wexford.
Well written with an intriguing plot. I gave up on Rendell after reading a couple of her books in which the characters were so despicable that I could hardly finish them. I was not aware of the Wexford series at the time. I am glad I tried one as the inspector is quite delightful. Everyone - cops and criminals - are more interesting and I'm getting to feel as if I know Wexford better and better. Plots still seem a bit contrived, with elements that come together in the end, but don't do so in any significant or meaningful way.
