Publisher's Summary

For a while the music Festival in Kingsmarkham was going well. The sun shone, the groups played and everyone - except a few angry neighbours - seemed to enjoy themselves. Then the weather changed, and a young couple made a gruesome discovery. In spite of dire predictions, the rock festival in Kingsmarkham seemed to be going off without a hitch, that is, until a hideously disfigured body is discovered in the nearby quarry. Soon Wexford is investigating the links between a local girl gone bad and a charismatic singer who inspires an unwholesome devotion in his followers. Some Lie and Some Die is a truly captivating novel, in which Wexford's deductive powers come up against the aloof arrogance of stardom.

    "Complex and compelling"

    I liked it very much and listened to it almost non stop. The plot is far-fetched but Rendell pulls it off. Most of the characters are twisted and troubled, with Wexford and his partner having to make sense of the weird things they have done. It was fascinating to follow the trail along with them as they uncover the clues that eventually lead them to the sordid truth.
    The narrator did an excellent job of giving voices to the various characters.

    "Wonderful"
    What did you love best about Some Lie and Some Die?

    Ruth Rendell keeps you guessing until the end, without cheating.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Always enjoy Chief Inspector Wexford. Very believable.


    What does Nigel Anthony bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    don't know how he manages to 'do ' the voices.
