One thought on “The Veiled One

  1. Bettie☯

    Read by Robin BaileyTotal Runtime 9 Hrs 2 MinsDescription One November evening, Wexford drives him from Barringdean Shopping Centre, noticing nothing amiss He is preoccupied with family matters precisely, his daughter Sheila who, in protest, has damaged Ministry of Defence Property, the wire fence surrounding a nuclear weapons facility An actress, her face is automatically splashed across the papers.Later, at home, Burden phones through with the news a garotted body has been founding in the Shop [...]

  2. Jaksen

    Another in the Inspector Wexford series by Ruth Rendell I absolutely loved this, one of her best.In this one the good inspector is nearly blown up early in the story, no spoilers here and is rendered than little under the weather, so his partner sidekick fills in, Mike Burden The mystery here isn t really who tried to kill the good inspector, but who killed a middle aged woman found dead in a parking garage There s a slew of potential leads and suspects, as well as red herrings and false leads [...]

  3. Chris

    See what happens when you close shopping centers at funny hours, like 6 pm Dead bodies pop up in the parking lot It s the frustation of not being able to get dinner.This is the first Wexford book I read, and I enjoyed it very much It is what Miss Marple and Jessica Flecther should be.

  4. Gabby

    In my opinion, very, very few writers do this genre better than Ruth Rendell Every now and then, someone will compare another author to her, but, in my view, those comparisons have been dead wrong every time I m not a huge fan of Inspector Wexford He used to be far too arrogant for my taste, but over the years as I read of him, he grew on me I m almost up to like In this mystery he is not the main investigator on the case, and it s interesting to see how the case moves forward without his full [...]

  5. Laura

    Chief Inspector Wexford investigates the estrangement of a middle age housewife at a car park of a supermarket In the meantime, he takes over the case after the explosion of a bomb in his car which was addressed to his subversive daughter.A lot of action in this book, as usual by any book written by Ruth Rendell.

  6. Margaret Wichorek

    I think I ve finally read all the Insp Wexford novels now and like all of them This one is about an older woman found garrotted in a parking garage The prime suspect is her son, a very odd young man, indeed But she had secrets, of course, and the puzzle was fun to get through Enjoyed it

  7. Laila (BigReadingLife)

    One of the better Inspector Wexford books so far Mike Burden becomes a therapist of sorts to this unhinged young man he suspects of murder Wexford s daughter is the target of a car bomb, in which Wexford himself in hurt There s a lot going on in this book but the threads all come together brilliantly in the end.

  8. Connie (Ava Catherine)

    Chief Inspector Wexford is investigating the murderer of a housewife in the parking lot of a shopping center when his daughter s car is bombed The book is a psychological mystery I like the study of characters and their motives.

  9. Shauna

    Great writing as always from Ruth Rendell but I thought the denouement was weak and extemely far fetched A very enjoyable read.

  10. Brian

    A psychological mystery Rendell gets deep into her characters minds in this novel A disturbing study of what makes a murderer wonderful The side plot is equally exciting 4 stars

  11. Felisa Rosa

    Ruth Rendell is an excellent writer with an extremely dark take on the human condition This is one of her better books, I think Satisfyingly creepy.

  12. Rick

    Can Wexford solve this strange mystery even though he must also recover from a car bombing incident Maybe Sgt Burden can help Or maybe Burden is going into a different direction altogether and becoming the victim of a dependent man who needs him to be a friendor a therapist PS I had to find out what the heck a garote is.

  13. Mary Smith

    I m not doing a narrative I ve always enjoyed the Wexford series by Ruth Rendell and this is one of the best It does involve the murder of a rather ordinary housewife and there is a car explosion which exits Wexford out of daughter s car.oh, just read it You can thank me later.

  14. Nancy

    As Inspector Burden relentlessly questions the man he believes is responsible for a murder, Inspector Wexford gathers bits of information from neighbors that he knits together to reveal the killer Interesting descriptions of people a places kept my interest.

  15. Carol Berkman

    Too weirdThis is far from my favorite book in this series, which I preferred when Wexford was eccentric and Burden driven and smarter.

  16. Rudy

    The ending is clogged and won t drain away with satisfaction The rest of the writing is filled with interior dialogue that is superb.

  17. Ralph

    On any other day when the body of a woman turns up in the underground car park of the main shopping center in Kingsmarkham Chief Inspector Reginald Wexford would quietly and methodically piece together all the elements of the case, breaking down alibis and ferreting out all the secrets people have squirreled away in the dark corners of their lives, ably assisted, or less, by Inspector Mike Burdern On this particular day, however, Wexford pulls out of the very same car park, before the discovery [...]
