9780099259206: A New Lease of Death (Wexford)

The second book to feature the classic crime-solving detective, Chief Inspector Wexford. It's impossible to forget the violent bludgeoning to death of an elderly lady in her home. Even more so when it's your first murder case. Wexford believed he'd solved Mrs Primero's murder fifteen years ago. It was no real mystery. Everyone knew Painter, her odd-job man, had done it. There had never been any doubt in anyone's mind. Until now...Henry Archery's son is engaged to Painter's daughter. Only Archery can't let the past remain buried. He wants to prove Wexford wrong, and in probing into the lives of the witnesses questioned all those years ago, he stirs up more than old ghosts.

Review:

"One of the best novelists writing today" -- P.D. James "Ruth Rendell has quite simply transformed the genre of crime writing. She displays her peerless skill in blending the mundane, commonplace aspects of life with the potent murky impulses of desire and greed, obsession and fear" Sunday Times "Rendell never fails to come up trumps, and her millions of admirers will eagerly consume this offering as they have all the others" The Irish Times "Ruth Rendell's mesmerising capacity to shock, chill and disturb is unmatched" The Times "A firm grasp of social concerns ensure that her novels are reflective of our own times, as well as hugely absorbing" -- Louise Welsh The Times

Book Description:

The second book in the bestselling Detective Chief Inspector Wexford series. Perfect for both collectors and new fans of award-winning crime novelist Ruth Rendell, who has written classic detective fiction and gripping psychological thrillers including End in Tears and Thirteen Steps Down.

Some cases are impossible to bury.
