End in Tears by Ruth Rendell

First sentence:

"When he lifted it off the seat the backpack felt heavier than when he put it into the car."


"Chief Inspector Wexford has never before known a case of a father finding the murdered body of his daughter, never thought to see a bereaved parent prone over his child's corpse. He has daughters of his own, but he can barely imagine himself in George Marshalson's position.

Wexford needs to discover if there is any connection between two apparently unrelated deaths. But he is soon accused in the local press of old-fashioned police methods.

However,with his old friend and partner, Mike Burden, and two new recruits to the Kingsmarkham team, Wexford pursues his inquiries with a diligence and humanity that makes Ruth Rendell's detective stories enthralling, exciting and very touching." -- from the back cover

My thoughts:

I liked this mystery featuring Chief Inspector Wexford. I liked how he and the rest of the Kingsmarkham team figure out the cause of the murders and catch the actual killer. I look forward to reading the first book in the series, From Doon with Death.
