  • Not in the Flesh

  • A Chief Inspector Wexford Mystery, Book 21 (Unabridged)
  • By: Ruth Rendell
  • Narrated by: Nigel Anthony
  • Length: 9 hrs and 52 mins

    4.5 out of 5 stars 35

Searching for truffles in a wood, a man and his dog unearth something less savoury: a human hand. The body, as Chief Inspector Wexford is informed later, has lain buried for 10 years or so, wrapped in a purple cotton sheet. The post mortem cannot reveal the precise cause of death. The only clue is a crack in one of the dead man’s ribs. The police computer stores a long list of missing persons: something like 500 people every day disappear nationwide.

God book, awful narration

Great story but the narrator is appalling. His inflection is quite often incorrect. His attempt at women's voices were cringeworthy. Detracted from the storyline. I will avoid Nigel Anthony at all costs!

Benjamin Daniels is angry. He is frustrated, confused, baffled and, quite frequently, very funny. He is also a GP. These are his confessions.A woman troubled by pornographic dreams about Tom Jones. An 80-year-old man who can't remember why he's come to see the doctor.

So So real

This is so close to the truth it really made me laugh out loud. As a nurse for 30 years this struck a chord. A good read and in nice sizeable chunks, ideal for train journeys with lots of changes and waits at train stations!
