Couldn't stay with this one. Characters were too convoluted and plot was very weak. This wasn't Rendell I have her best.
Quite apart from the detective element, which I really enjoyed, this was worth the price as a period piece. I was brought up in the 70s and this book evoked such memories of times when men were men and went to work, and women stayed home (and had cleaners! - but no central heating).
Beautifully read as always by Simon Russell Beale, capable of infusing menace into a company annual report and balance sheet.

This murder mystery, set in a fictional suburb of north west London makes for an extremely rewarding listening experience. Susan Townsend is a divorcee living in a street where the neighbours like to gossip, when Louise North is found dead with her lover, Bernard Heller, the whole community is shocked. It is then a game of cat and mouse to determine the truth.
I am slowly working through Rendell's back catalogue on Audible, so it's a huge treat to hear the stories instead of reading them.
Simon Russell Beale is a sublime narrator and able to portray a huge range of characters. More please.
