J'ai aimé énormément ce livre, une belle histoire policière mais pas seulement cela. Il y a aussi une peinture de la société contemporaine, des personnages denses et intéressants. Michele.bertrand

Being a fan of Ruth Rendell, I am disappointed this time. I am wondering if it is really this beloved author who has written this book. The writing style is not her usual one. I think she has written a part of the story or gave the guidelines only, and someone else has completed it. Also, the story is somewhat tangled, I did not find the usual build-up, the straight line...

This lady must be very old by now, perhaps people around her want to keep up the glory (and the money).

Chief Inspector Reginald Wexford may be retired, however he’s just as smart and intuitive as ever. Well, perhaps he is a tad more crotchety, especially when his reading of his beloved Decline and Fall Of the Roman Empire is interrupted, but for this reader that makes him all the more endearing. While he’s reasonably content in retirement he does miss investigating crimes so when Detective Superintendent Burden asks his old boss to join in the chase Wexford doesn’t hesitate.

As it turns out this is an especially intriguing case - the Rev. Sarah Hussain, recently appointed vicar of St. Peter’s Church has been strangled. To say that her appointment was greeted with enthusiasm would be a gross understatement. She is not only female but biracial and a single mother. Seems that bigotry and racism are alive and well in Kingsmarkham. But would that be enough to commit brutal murder?

There is no shortage of suspects from Dennis Cuthbert, a church member who not only objected to Sarah but to her modernization of the liturgy, Gerald Watson, an old flame of Sarah’s who had taken to what some might stalking her and more. In addition to the coterie of suspects subplots abound including the jam ne’er-do-well Jeremy Legg has gotten himself into by the return of his ex-wife when Jeremy is illegally renting her flat. As it happens his tenants are Jason Sams and family. Jason is the son of Wexford’s non-stop gossipy cleaning lady. Then, who is the father of Sarah’s daughter, Clarissa?

Burden arrests gardener Duncan Crisp for the murder. Wexford doesn’t believe the man is guilty which causes a rift between the two investigators. Days aren’t at all sunny in Kingsmarkham and environs, which isn’t due to the weather. All of this makes for intriguing reading and a reminder of what an ace writer of crime fiction Ruth Rendell truly is. My one caveat is that for this reader too much space was devoted to subplots which tended to detract from the story’s building excitement.

Enjoy!
