Ruth Rendell presents her detective, Chief Inspector Wexford, with a series of events that involve domestic violence and conclude with murder. This consciousness-raising novel always dramatizes, never preaches, and, therefore, makes its points all the more effectively. It's a strong blend of insight and entertainment. The superb work of reader Donada Peters serves this fine book well. Peters excels at that difficult intangible of creating an inviting, pleasing environment for the listener. Over the course of the entire book, she becomes a familiar, reassuring narrative presence, whose work could deservedly win her fans of her own.
