Mystery & Suspense • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1973

This is a vintage Rendell murder mystery about a cruel prank gone awry. Inspector Wexford solves the mystery of a young woman found murdered in a quarry during an outdoor rock concert. Actor Nigel Anthony narrates the tale with the professionalism BBC listeners have come to expect. His Wexford is perfectly portrayed, with just the right note of hearty gruffness. His Inspector Burden portrayal has the slight air of priggishness we recognize as part of Burden's character. Even his female characters are well acted, especially the rabbit-like witness who sees the victim walking to her death. Nigel Anthony provides mystery lovers with a memorable listening experience.
