Publisher's Summary

Concealed by a shroud of dirty brown velvet was what looked like a heap of rags. In a desolate subterranean car park of a Shopping Centre, Dorothy Sanders pulled back the velvet curtain revealing the grim discovery of a woman’s body. Inspector Michael Burden, for a while conducting the investigation without the help of Wexford’s intuitive genius, blunders down a number of blind alleys before uncovering the truth. Who would garrote a middle-aged housewife and leave her body in the parking garage of a suburban shopping mall? Chief Inspector Wexford is no sooner on the case than a car bomb's explosion lands him in the hospital. It's now up to Mike Burden to step in and solve the case. He's got a suspect . . . but will he be able to make him talk?

Narration Frustration

I really got frustrated trying to listen to this one. I was constantly adjusting the volume, as some characters seemed to shout, and with others (Burden) the narrator's voice fell away and became unintelligible.

I am a big fan of Rendell's Inspector Wexford series as a rule, but perhaps I need to stick to print.

Most excellent book and reader. Much more captivating than "Tree of Hands." Recommended highly. I'm going to follow this reader.
