9780007424320: Wolf to the Slaughter

Chief Inspector Wexford tries to solve a murder with no evidence, not even a body. Read by the star of the TV series.

Anita Margolis had vanished. There was no body, no crime - nothing more than an anonymous letter and the intriguing name of Smith. According to HQ, it wasn't to be a murder enquiry at all. In fact, Inspector Burden has no trouble seeing a pattern in the Margolis case. Anita was wealthy, flighty, and thoroughly immoral. Decent women had clean, tidy homes, and were either married or had jobs, or both - they didn't live with eccentric brothers and bring lovers home in the afternoon. And they knew better than to keep their money in their handbags. It was clear as daylight to Inspector Burden what had happened to Anita Margolis. Chief Inspector Wexford however, had other ideas.
