Chief Inspector Reg Wexford is probably Ruth Rendell's greatest creation. In this Wexford mystery we have the typical wealthy family which lives in a mansion with the requisite servants. But things are never what they seem in any Rendell story and, thanks to the sublime presentation by actor Robin Bailey, each member of the cast is portrayed appropriately. Particularly effective is how the irritations, grudges and animosities among characters are immediately discernible to the listener. Additionally, the many subplots and minor characters are well-presented by both author and narrator. This is a wise purchase. S.G.B.
