Chief Inspector Wexford makes his thirteenth foray into the troubled human psyche. When Rodney Williams is reported missing, Wexford believes it to be a simple case of a man having left his wife for another woman. Michael Bryant’s narration is solid as Wexford delves into the hidden corners of the missing man’s life. As twisted thoughts are revealed, Bryant’s character portrayals are subtle, controlled, and credible. From the deep depression of a mother-to-be to a jilted wife’s confusion and the rabid doctrine of extreme feminists, Rendell never avoids the disturbing elements that torment ordinary people. Wexford knows appearances aren’t always a reliable indication of what seethes below the surface, and Bryant’s performance keeps things rich with human insights.
