9780099534822: Wolf To The Slaughter: (A Wexford Case)

The third book to feature the classic crime-solving detective, Chief Inspector Wexford.

Passion can be lethal.

Anita Margolis has vanished. Dark and exquisite, Anita's character is as mysterious as her disappearance.

There was no body, no crime - nothing more concrete than an anonymous letter and the intriguing name of Smith. According to headquarters, it wasn't to be considered a murder enquiry at all.

With the letter providing them with only one questionable lead to follow, Wexford and his sidekick Inspector Burden are compelled to make enquiries. They soon discover Anita is wealthy, flighty, and thoroughly immoral. The straight-laced Burden has a very clear idea of what happened to her. But Wexford has his own suspicions...

Product Description:

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.

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)

"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)

"The best mystery writer anywhere in the English-speaking world" ( Boston Globe)

"An unusual detective story... intelligent, well-written, with a surprising twist at the end" ( Times Literary Supplement)
