Review

    • "If crime fiction is currently in rude good health, its practitioners striving to better the craft and keep it fresh, vibrant and relevant, this is in no small part thanks to Ruth Rendell." --Ian Rankin --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

When Margaret Parsons disappears, Inspector Burden tries to reassure her frantic husband that she will be back by morning. Privately, though, he is certain Margaret has run off with another man. But then the missing woman's body is found, strangled and abandoned in a nearby wood. And when Mr. Parsons lets the police into his home, a startling discovery leads everyone to question just who Margaret Parsons really was . . . --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the first book in the Wexford and Burden series by Rendell and it is a good read. The plot revolves around a missing housewife and distraight husband who is trying to find her. The trail weaves among many different people and ends in a surprise.
This novel was written in 1964 and might seem a little bit outdated to some readers and the two main detectives are not developed yet. However, the story moves along well and keeps one interested til the end. A good start to a great series.

I read this book a long time ago and was surprised to see that more people had not read this one. This was my first Rendell book and I have been hooked ever since. It was done simply and masterfully. The author does an magnificent job of keeping the reader guessing along with the Inspectors. Wrapping your brain around this one should be fun. If this is your first mystery/thriller or a book you are just discovering, you shouldn't be disappointed.

This is the first of Ruth Rendell's books and we are thrust into the death of Margaret Parson's. All we have are the inscriptions in books from Doon, who is Doon and what is the link to Margaret? I was so pleased to come across this novel. the first in the series of Wexford novels. This book will have you wondering who is Doon ? and you won't know till the final pages. A very good first novel and as we know the rest is history.
