I usually like Ruth Rendall's Kingsmarkham mysteries, but I was struck this time by how often the lead detective misses very obvious clues and seems, in general, unusually obtuse. It's a decent "listen," but far from her best.

Ruth Rendell is such a good writer and has such unusual plots, she's hard to resist. The police procedure followed in this outing is the worst ,but none of the Wexford books make the cops seem that bright. As for Wexford himself ,he comes across as an opinionated old foggy, who makes instant judgment based on look and interior decorating. I think I'll stick with Rendells other books from now on.
