Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2005

Two murders, with two unrelated victims. Or are they? It falls to Chief Inspector Wexford to find the link between the death of a woman killed by a chunk of concrete dropped off an overpass and the vicious bludgeoning of teenager Amber Marshalson. Concluding that the first death was the result of a failed attempt on Amber's life only raises more questions--and adds to the list of suspects. Rendell's serpentine plot and quirky characters are well served by Daniel Gerroll's narration. His wry rendering of Wexford is a highlight, and he conveys the dispositions of all of the characters without apparent effort. He's also adept at emphasizing the story's grace notes of dark humor.
