Publisher's Summary

The bleak expanse of Vangmoor was a dark, forbidding place. One victim had been found there, blonde, her face disfigured, her head shorn close to the scalp - killed without motive or mercy. Then a second woman went missing on the moor, and a sense of utter dread gripped the fifty local men who searched for her. Someone watched them in that treacherous place. Was he a killer? Or was he merely angry that a killer had usurped him? For he, and only he, was the Master of the Moor.

A bit meandering, but still enjoyable

The narrator was great, as tend to be many British narrators.
The book was overall enjoyable, but at times I found myself drifting and not paying attention because I was a bit bored.
Also, I was not satisfied at the end because I didn't quite feel like I knew exactly what happened.
Still, I would recommend this read if you're a Ruth Rendell fan, and enjoy good British narrators.

Beautifully written but somewhat disappointing

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The whole story was very long-winded and not particularly interesting as such, however, I liked the way the protagonist's nature and character were slowly unfolding. At first, I thought he was intriguing and maybe even a good person, but then one realises how bizarre he really he is. Unfortunately, the ending was very abrupt and somehow dissatisfying.

Would you be willing to try another book from Ruth Rendell? Why or why not?

Ruth Rendell is one of the best contemporary British crime writers, I believe.

Was Master of the Moor worth the listening time?

I am glad I listened to this book, because actually reading the paper version would have been too much of a time waste, I am sorry to say.
