Summary

Who could have suspected that the exciting stag party for the groom would be the prelude to the murder of his close friend Charlie Hatton? And Charlie's death was only the first in a string of puzzling murders involving small-time gangsters, cheating husbands, and loose women. Now Chief Inspector Wexford and his assistant join forces with the groom to track down a killer.

Brilliant Narration

The characters come to life. The convoluted plot comes to a surprising conclusion, how did Ruth Rendell think them up!

Not the best but entertaining

Any additional comments?

I didnt like this narrator when he read a previous book as I found his voice rasping but this one was better. Not the best Rendell but I still enjoyed it.

disappointing

A struggle all the way. Narration, words slurring difficult to follow one to avoid I think.
