Nobody has a better ear for the whine of the unloved and unappreciated than Ruth Rendell. Early in this Inspector Wexford adventure, a young woman who was bound and gagged during a robbery demands victim counselling; not long after, families of some people taken hostage quickly cluster themselves into a support group. The titular "road rage" is equally timely and politically correct: protestors have gathered from around the world to stop, by whatever means they can, a new motorway that will cut through some of the woods surrounding Wexford's fictional but endearing village of Kingsmarkham.Review:
"One of the greatest novelists presently at work in our language ... A writer whose work should be read by anyone who either enjoys a brilliant mystery - or distinguished literature" Scott Turow "The most brilliant mystery novelist of our time" Patricia Cornwell "With immaculate control, Ruth Rendell builds a menacing crescendo of tension and horror that keeps you guessing right up to the brilliantly paced finale" Good Housekeeping "Without doubt the most distinguished living writer of crime stories... Ruth Rendell really makes the most of this beautifully-imagined plot" Birmingham Post
