Critic Reviews

"Nigel Anthony's reading sets this recording of five short mysteries by Rendell...above others in the genre. Chief inspector Wexford and inspector Burden investigate poisonings, baby-swapping, theft, and forgery in 'Means of Evil', 'Old Wives Tales', 'Ginger and the Kingsmarkham Chalk Circle', 'Achilles Heel', and 'When the Wedding Was Over'.

Favourite Wexford Stories

A brilliant collection of short stories featuring Wexford and Burden, have listened to them over and over. Love Nigel Anthony's portrayal of the characters.

Unsatisfying

It has the elements of detective fiction without much of the resolution. Some of the stories built well but it was a pretty stale and very brief collection

One of the best and narration is 5 Star

Any additional comments?

The narration of the stories deserve a special mention. The stories were compelling - I found myself taking the long route home just to try and find out the ending. Highly recommended
