Publisher's Summary

Chief Inspector Wexford finds nothing unusual in the disappearance of Rodney Williams, a husband and father who likely has run off with another woman. But when the man’s car and suitcase are discovered abandoned, can a body be far behind?

Confounded by a string of violent stabbings, a strident schoolgirl clique, and the seemingly placid domesticity of his neighbors, Wexford’s detective instincts must take flight in order to bring down a murderer.

With a keen wit and even sharper plot, Rendell weaves a suspenseful web of ever-tangling secrets, double-crosses, and double-lives.

    Story
    "Feminists revenge"
    What did you love best about An Unkindness of Ravens?

    The feminist manifesto in this mystery was a real surprise. The author summarized the life of upper middle class women in the 1940's in 1950's England and how the women's liberation movement influenced the plot.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters were well developed. Economic of murder is the best part of the story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I like how the author explained the life of the murdered husband of two wives and two families who learned about each other.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I am always amazed by the author's discussion of men and their relationships with wives and children.


    Any additional comments?

    The author captures the essence of fear and hate.
