    Read by Michael BryantTotal Runtime 8 Hours 9 MinsDescription Rodney Williams s disappearance seems typical to Chief Inspector Wexford a simple case of a man running off with a woman other than his wife But when another woman reports that her husband is missing, the case turns unpleasantly complex.This is somewhat simi

    This was my least liked of the Rendell books I have read to date and Ruth Rendell has been one of my favorite mystery authors So what was the problem exactly I would break it down to three separate complaints.1 The cold, unemotional mother figure and her subsequently damaged or dysfunctional offspring While this leads to
