Rendell at her best

This is definitely one of my favourite Ruth Rendells and I have read it many times. As I am unable to read at present and wanted to be reminded of Rendell's brilluance I decided to try an abridged listen. This is well narrated by George Baker (Wexford on screen) and does not disapoint. It is a gripping listen but if you are new to Rendell or this novel I would recommend the unabridged version. I love the atmosphere and the characterisation in this novel and much of this is lost in the abridged version. However it is still highly recommended if you want a gripping, quick listen.
