Means of Evil


Author: Ruth Rendell
0 (0 Votes)
According to the London Sunday Express, Ruth Rendell is "one of the best novelists writing today." For readers new to her work, this collection of five mysteries, all cases for Detective Chief Inspector Wexford, is a perfect introduction.

In Wexford, Rendell has created a rare and endearing character. Like all memorable and remarkable individuals, Wexford is a man of great intuitive power. His best performances are flashes of insight, solutions that seem more inspired by instinct than intellect.

"Rendell has a taste, a gift for the macabre. One never puts down one of her books without feeling chilled to the bone." (Daily Express)
