9780099534822: Wolf To the Slaughter (Wexford)

Anita Margolis has vanished. But with no body and no apparent crime, there's seemingly nothing for Inspector Wexford to investigate.

Anita Margolis has vanished. Dark and exquisite, Anita's character is as mysterious as her disappearance. But with no body and no apparent crime, seemingly there's nothing to be investigated.

Until Wexford receives an anonymous note claiming "a girl called Ann" was killed the very night Anita disappeared. But how seriously should they take the note?

With only one questionable lead to follow, Wexford and Inspector Burden are compelled to make enquiries. They soon discover Anita is wealthy, flighty, and thoroughly immoral. Burden has a very clear idea of what has happened to her. But Wexford has his own suspicions.

From the Inside Flap:

It was better than a hotel, this anonymous room on a secluded side street of a small country town. No register to sign, no questions asked, and for five bucks a man could have three hours of undisturbed, illicit lovemaking.

Then one evening a man with a knife turned the love nest into a death chamber. The carpet was soaked with blood -- but where was the corpse?

Meanwhile, a beautiful, promiscuous woman is missing -- along with the bundle of cash she'd had in her pocket. The truth behind it all will keep even veteran mystery fans guessing through the very last page.

From the Back Cover:

"Rendell is awfully good....in any Rendell book you know that something unusual is going to happen."--The New York Times Book Review

"Undoubtedly one of the best writers of English mysteries and chiller-killer plots."--Los Angeles Times

"For readers who have almost given up mysteries... Rendell may be just the woman to get them started again."--Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine

"First-rate Entertainment."--Saturday Review
