9780099299004: Means of Evil and Other Stories

Here are five classic Wexford cases that display his remarkable ingenuity — and that of his creator. Ranging from the more everyday crimes of passion and violence in quiet Kingsmarkham, to a bizarre murder in Yugoslavia, each is a case which challenges Detective Chief Inspector Wexford's considerable imagination and resourcefulness, and the patient reasoning of the long suffering Burden.

About the Author:

RUTH RENDELL has won many awards for her writing, including the Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger, the Sunday Times Literary Award, and the Crime Writers' Association Cartier Diamond Dagger.

From Library Journal:

Nigel Anthony's reading sets this recording of five short mysteries by Rendell (The Veiled One, Audio Reviews, LJ 5/1/96) 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." The venues vary in these classic English mysteries from Kingsmarkham to the south of France and California, but the characters, for the most part, lack development. Puzzle-solving listeners may enjoy these short, flat pieces, but they are not the best examples of an Edgar Award-winning author. Recommended only where Rendell is popular.?Sandy Glover, West Linn P.L., Ore.
