Summary

Elizabeth Nightingale found peace and tranquility on her nightly walks through the rich, dense forests surrounding Myfleet Manor. But the peace she treasured was shattered one night when she found death waiting in the woods.

Chief Inspector Wexford and his colleague, Inspector Burden, find a most unsavory case on their hands - and must use all their wit and wisdom to solve it.

Excellent Ruth Rendell

I love Ruth Rendell’s writing and it’s very sad that we won’t be getting any more novels from her. This is a classic Wexford, beautifully narrated by Christopher Ravenscroft. It sounded dated and makes me feel incredibly old! But that all adds to the entertainment and the lovely cosyness of a classic English detective story.
