Winner of multiple Edgar and Gold Dagger awards including the most prestigious Edgar of them all, the Grand Master, Ruth Rendell returns with a novel that pits Chief Inspector Wexford against a quite personal foe: the environmental terrorists who kidnap and threaten the lives of five hostages--including Wexford's own wife. As Road Rage begins, Chief Inspector Wexford is walking through Framhurst Great Wood, just outside his beloved town of Kingsmarkham, for what he tells himself will be the last time. He can no longer bear to look at the natural beauty that will soon be despoiled by the construction of a new highway. Wexford rather despairs of the project; his more sanguine wife, Dora, is active on a committee to save the threatened land. Others are more desperate to achieve their end, and their means include the taking of hostages, including Dora, and the threat to begin murdering them.How Wexford and his dedicated team of police officers race against time to learn the identity of the kidnappers and discover the whereabouts of the hostages will rivet readers who delight in following the intricate details of an intensive police investigation. But, as in every Ruth Rendell novel, the mortal drama raises political and moral questions that are not resolved with the closing of the case, and that apply far beyond the limits of Kingsmarkham.

I'm a big fan of Ruth Rendell so when I saw this book at the top of the list I immediately ordered it, not recognizing the title. Being familiar with all the characters and events, pretty much, in the Inspector Wexford series I soon realized (I am pretty sure) this book came out some time ago. Apologies if I'm wrong but it seemed pretty clear (from references in the story) it was an older book. I probably would have bought it anyway but without an indication of the original pub date I was confused and it was hard to orient myself to the story at first (based on others I've read for years in the series). Nonetheless for new or longstanding fans of Ms. Rendell a GREAT book. As always!!!

At first I didn't think I could finish it. Another of Ruth Rendell's biology lessons....way too much "plant life" to begin with. Seemed like filling in of human characters was never going to start. But about 1/3 way thru decided I could finish it. The mystery has finally started to unfold. It's not a book that will ever "grab", me but it's OK

Lots of twists and turns, lots of misdirection make this Wexford mystery an ongoing challenge for the reader detective. Wexford's wife as a captive adds another dimension to the case. This is a mystery that keeps your attention from start to finish.

Unengaging, repetitious, hard to take seriously. I usually love Ruth Rendell books.

O don't feel this is up to her standard. Too long, too much background and not enough intrigue.

Ruth Rendell is the master of mystery writers. No a word wasted, not a sentence the contrived. Our community is fighting a similar battle as the one in the book but in the US. She has nailed the players, the situation, the plot. We have the tree sitters, the home owners, but so far no kidnapping or murder. Well done Ruth Rendell,

This one dragged a lot. Not one of Rendell's best. Her usual psychological insights were missing from this plot. I found myself skipping ahead, something I rarely do with a Rendell book.
The use of the term "road rage" is very clever. The residents of Kingsmarkham are joined by various "green groups" to protest the building of a bypass road. Then the unthinkable happens in this rural community.....a multiple kidnapping takes place and the threats begin - build the bypass and they die!! Read on...
