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

Beautifully written but somewhat disappointing
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.
Ruth Rendell is one of the best contemporary British crime writers, I believe.
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.
