Chief Inspector Reginald Wexford investigates the uneventful life and passionate death of Margaret Parsons--or is it Mina? Veteran Rendell’s first novel is a study in contradictions and characters. Hardiman reads each character with emotion and drama. Although Margaret is already dead when the story begins, listeners get a vivid picture of her old-fashioned, respectable existence. Hardiman’s delightful British accent adds authenticity and charm to this outstanding contribution to crime fiction. The unexpected ending will surprise everyone.
