As a fan of Ruth Rendell I was quite excited to get and listen to The Vault. It didn't quite live up to the writing quality of her other books, but was engaging all the same. For fans of her detective series this is a must. It moves him into his next stage of life and how he deals with it. The mystery is intriguing, but unwinds a little slowly. The reader is very good with English accents and suggests class, age and gender well.
This book gives an inside perspective on the workings of the Baltimore homicide division. It is a low-key story of the relationships and experiences of cops.
No. I love cop stories, but they must have a compelling story and an interesting protagonist.
The performance was flat. My mind kept wandering.
The scenes did not even stay in my head.
Too bad this did not stand up to David Simon's later writing.
