Ruth Barbara Rendell, Baroness Rendell of Babergh, CBE (née Grasemann; 17 February 1930 – 2 May 2015), was an English author of thrillers and psychological murder mysteries.

SUMMARY: Chief Inspector Wexford is in China, visiting ancient tombs and palaces with a group of British tourists. After their return to England, one of his fellow tourists is found murdered. SUMMARY: Sir Manuel Camargue's death was ruled Misadventure, yet in spite of himself, Chief Inspector Wexford has niggling doubts. Sir Manuel Camargue, one of the greatest flautists of his time, was dead. An old man, ankle-deep in snow, he lost his foothold in the dark, slipping into water to be trapped under a lid of ice.

O desespero cruzou a vida de duas jovens. Her creepy psychological thrillers or almost-thrillers are the ones I love best. This, instead, is an Inspector Wexford mystery.

The sixteenth book to feature the classic crime-solving detective, Chief Inspector Wexford. When a young, black woman goes missing in Kingsmarkham, Wexford must respond to a test not only of his powers of deduction, but of his basic beliefs and prejudices. Only eighteen black people live in Kingsmarkham. One of them is Wexford's new doctor, Raymond Akande. When the doctor's daughter, Melanie, goes missing, the Chief Inspector takes more than just a professional interest in the case.

Ruth Rendell was born in Essex, England on February 17, 1930. She was educated at Loughton County High School. Rendell began her career as a journalist. She wrote six novels before sending her work in to a publisher. She writes crime novels and psychological thrillers, and is best known for her Inspector Wexford books. Rendell also writes under the pseudonym Barbara Vine

The sixteenth book to feature the classic crime-solving detective, Chief Inspector Wexford. Even though the plot of the former is slightly overworked - an impressive construction, lacking somewhat in credibility - the connection is realistic and effective.

Ruth Rendell is the best mystery writer in the English-speaking world  . Ruth Rendell is the best mystery writer in the English-speaking world. No one admitted to spotting the doctor's missing daughter-even after the murders began.

In the quiet Sussex country town of Kingsmarkham,  the daughter of Nigerian physician Raymond Akande  is missing. "It's probably nothing, "  says Dr. Akande to his friend and client Chief  Inspector Wexford, whose help he enlists.  But the days that follow prove the doctor  dreadfully wrong. A young woman is found  murdered not Melanie, but the last person to have seen and  spoken to her. A second woman's body is discovered,  again not Melanie's, but like her, young and  black. A third woman turns up beaten and unconscious;  like the others, she is of Nigerian origin. As  Inspector Wexford's investigation stretches from  days into weeks, it becomes his unhappy obligation to  counter the hopes of the doctor and his wife. In  Wexford's professional opinion, Melanie, like the  other young women, has become the victim of a  serial killer with a horrifyingly singular objective.From the Paperback edition.
Although I've only read half a dozen of Rendell's books, I'm a fan. Her stories are well-plotted, with engaging characters and compelling mysteries. Best of all, she can be spooky, just on the edge of the grid. This was the first of her Wexford books that left me underwhelmed. It seemed to be driven by a rather predictable investigation of attitudes about race (and, to some extent, gender), and the dated politics of the book (in which characters have to come to terms with their own racism, buried as it sometimes is) felt message-driven rather than situation or character driven. Certainly a solid mystery, but rather obvious in its cultural inquiries and, frankly, surprisingly uninteresting in the disappearance and subsequent murder(s).
I could not put the book down. Rendell develops such wonderful characters to interact with Detectives Wexford and Burden. These stories show the darkest sides of mankind and the most moral ones. You don't feel preached to, though. You are just glad there are those who do the right thing and right the wrongs.
This is one of the better Inspector Wexford novels from this period. It adds the dimensions of race and integration to the class issues that were present from the beginning in her writing. It's sort of the inverse of Rendell's Judgment in Stone and seems more plausible than that novel.

If you like Wexford, you'll like this one.
I really enjoyed this story as it dealt with issues relating to racial perceptions in a small English village. Also dealt with unemployment and the effect it has on a community. Ms Rendell always includes interesting human aspects in her stories. You have to read more than one chapter at a time - otherwise you will lose the thread - as the names of all the people in the story do become confusing.
This is a perfect book to read on a wet and cold evening , in front of a fire. I do recommend it to anyone who likes murder mysteries and with the constabulary involved.
Lots of greats clues to follow and wonderful characters. You certainly won’t fall asleep reading this, so don’t save it for bedtime.
I would not start the Wexford mysteries with this one but it fits nicely into the series. It's hard to rate the books in this series as" stand alone" mysteries as the author assumes you are acquainted with her characters. Ruth Rendell is probably a bit bored with this whole series by now but I don't thihk it shows; in each new book she delves into another social issue to spice things up. If you don't like social issues mixed into your mysteries, pick another British mystery writer......there are soooomany!!
Ruth Rendell is always a good read. What sets this book apart is the focus on racism. One needs to reflect on how one interacts with others. In the PC world, it gets even more difficult. So read this book if you enjoy Inspector Wexford. Read it for the jolts it can give you when you encounter those who are different than you.
In the mid 1990's, Inspector Wexford finds himself immersed in a case that starts out innocently enough as a missing person's case. His doctor's daughter is missing. Then, a social worker's body is found. Are the two connected? Is the missing girl still alive and, if she is (or isn't), where is she? Another body is found. Are the three cases connected? How? Why?
What a wonderful who-done-it! This tale, filled with mystery and intrigue, twists and turns and then twists again. You figure it out and then refigure it out ...but, no, that's not the answer either.
Ms. Rendell has written an extremely good mystery. Through this story, Wexford also deals with cultural awareness and racism (his and those around him).
This is not an easy story to forget. At times, this story is very harsh and gruesome but never boring.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a well structured mystery. It is the best mystery by Rendell that I have read so far.
