A Tale of Greed & Fanaticism

As always, Rendell draws a series of apparently unconnected characters together in a mystery both sinister and compelling. An unexpected death throws all Wexford's theories into confusion and the final dénouement is as simple as it is surprising.
Perfectly read, this one must not be missed.

Good but better Wexford books in the series

A good book but there are better Wexford books in series.
At times little predictable and could have been condensed

Road Rage

I enjoyed the story but the reader was a little dull and this spoilt the story a bit
