Shake Hands Forever | [Ruth Rendell]

Shake Hands Forever

The bed was neatly made, and the woman on top neatly strangled. According to all accounts, Angela Hathall was deeply in love with her husband and far too paranoid to invite an unknown person into their home. So who managed to gain entry and strangle her without a struggle? That is the problem facing Inspector Wexford.

Publisher's Summary

The bed was neatly made, and the woman on top neatly strangled. According to all accounts, Angela Hathall was deeply in love with her husband and far too paranoid to invite an unknown person into their home. So who managed to gain entry and strangle her without a struggle? That is the problem facing Inspector Wexford: Perhaps it was the mystery woman who left her fingerprints on the Hathall's bathtub? Perhaps it was Angela's husband who lied about a stolen library book? And why was the Hathall home, usually so unkempt, exquisitely clean the day of Angela's death? Then a neighbor - friendly, knowing, disarmingly beautiful - offers Wexford her assistance. And what begins as a rather tricky case turns into an obsession that threatens to destroy the Inspector's career - as well as his marriage.

    Anglophile. Prefer only British fiction and mysteries. Good translations of Italian, too.

    "Just one more excellent Inspector Wexford mystery"
    What did you love best about Shake Hands Forever?

    The brilliant twists and turns inherent in most Rendell novels with Inspector Wexford. She does keep one guessing. In addition, the characterizations are sublime.


    What other book might you compare Shake Hands Forever to and why?

    I suppose one of her other Wexford books. I don't really like comparisons.


    What about Nigel Anthony’s performance did you like?

    I liked the modulated, even tone. He is a good reader.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    What will we do when there are no more Ruth Rendell mysteries?
