    3.5 For almost fifty years Rendell has been writing her Wexford novels and Inspector Wexford has aged right along with the series He is now retired, plowing his way through The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire In this novel it is mentioned that this is the goal of many a retiree, not one of mine, but that Wexler is actually accomplishing this and enjoying it as well At the end of the novel he is I believe on volume 6 Although his body has aged, his mind has not and he still finds solving 3.5 For almost fifty years Rendell has been writing her Wexford novels and Inspector Wexford has aged right along with the series He is now retired, plowing his way through The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire In this novel it is mentioned that this is the goal of many a retiree, not one of mine, but that Wexler is actually accomplishing this and enjoying it as well At the end of the novel he is I believe on volume 6 Although his body has aged, his mind has not and he still finds solving who done its vastly interesting and when a killing happens at the church, he finds himself involved Invited in somewhat by his successor Burden I love this series, no I have not read them for fifty years, but for sure the last twenty give or take a few I love his bits of humor, his way of seeing things and catching up on the doings in his family The characters are always a mix, some quirky, some love to lie, a true representation of the people in a city, town or village I sincerely hope this author continues on with this series because it is one I will sorely miss

    It was a real pleasure to revisit Wexford in his retirement although this time he has been called in as a kind of consulting detective with his old bagman Burden, now Superintendent Burden and very much the boss.The local vicar, a single mother of mixed race, a combination designed to bring out the very worst in herconservative parishioners has been battered to death in the vicarage A high profile murder and Burden has asked his old superior to assist and Wexford gladly agrees.He does so It was a real pleasure to revisit Wexford in his retirement although this time he has been called in as a kind of consulting detective with his old bagman Burden, now Superintendent Burden and very much the boss.The local vicar, a single mother of mixed race, a combination designed to bring out the very worst in herconservative parishioners has been battered to death in the vicarage A high profile murder and Burden has asked his old superior to assist and Wexford gladly agrees.He does so with an unexpected streak of naughtiness while he pursues the case almost on his own, convinced that Burden is on the wrong scent This independent streak causes him to be wracked with spasms of guilt as he removes evidence without authorization and commits other investigative sins, none of which particularly excite Burden who treats him with perhaps surprising toleration even when Wexford takes obvious and somewhat petty delight in pointing out Burden s errors.The ongoing evolution in Wexford s character, his complicated family relationships, and the evolution of a beautifully developed mystery with suspect succeeding suspect make this post career entry one of the best Wexford books in years and I can only hope that he is allowed to continue in his new consultative role Highly recommended

    Better than the last Wexford, which was dire, but still not one of the best I know Wexford is now retired but this is still a contemporary novel and shouldn t feel so old fashioned I ve always thought RR s writing style set her apart from her peers, but the prose here seems plodding and often repetitious I spotted a couple of unforgiveable errors again the name of the supermarket changes from the fictional Questo to the real life Tesco and Burden s calendar has photos of police station at Better than the last Wexford, which was dire, but still not one of the best I know Wexford is now retired but this is still a contemporary novel and shouldn t feel so old fashioned I ve always thought RR s writing style set her apart from her peers, but the prose here seems plodding and often repetitious I spotted a couple of unforgiveable errors again the name of the supermarket changes from the fictional Questo to the real life Tesco and Burden s calendar has photos of police station at the beginning of the case which changes to Cornish pond life with the New Year, but in March we re back to police stations This sort of thing has happened in most of RR s recent work Her editor, assuming it is the same one, really needs taking to task

    I really enjoyed reading this book, not so much for the mystery, although that definitely held my attention, but because of the pure delight of seeing the modern world through the gently bewildered, determinedly tolerant eyes of a retired Inspector Wexford Being a baby boomer myself, I related to much of what he was thinking, and I couldn t help wondering how much the author was expressing her own feelings through her character s thoughts The Inspector and his family have become so familiar to I really enjoyed reading this book, not so much for the mystery, although that definitely held my attention, but because of the pure delight of seeing the modern world through the gently bewildered, determinedly tolerant eyes of a retired Inspector Wexford Being a baby boomer myself, I related to much of what he was thinking, and I couldn t help wondering how much the author was expressing her own feelings through her character s thoughts The Inspector and his family have become so familiar to me over the years that reading about them feels as if I m getting the news about my own friends and relatives Wexford s enduring and affectionate relationship with Dora, and their ups and downs with their adult daughters are not only believable, but also very refreshing in this age of dysfunctional detectives whose lives are as disordered as the people they are investigating Minor characters are also entertaining, particularly the garrulous home help, Maxine The plot is delivered in a pleasant, low key way quietly persistent detection as opposed to chills and thrills, but the end result is a thoroughly absorbing and very charming read This one will stay on my shelf as I know I ll want to read it again at some point in the future

    Let me begin by saying that I love the Inspector Wexford series It s one of my favorites but the problem with this one is that much of the book is based on an inaccuracy The novel says specifically that two brown eyed parents can not have a blue eyed child This isn t true If both parents had a blue eyed parent then they have a 25% chance of having a blue eyed child Are there no editors any to catch this stuff I wish Wexford had not retired Burden seems to be a little heavy handled in Let me begin by saying that I love the Inspector Wexford series It s one of my favorites but the problem with this one is that much of the book is based on an inaccuracy The novel says specifically that two brown eyed parents can not have a blue eyed child This isn t true If both parents had a blue eyed parent then they have a 25% chance of having a blue eyed child Are there no editors any to catch this stuff I wish Wexford had not retired Burden seems to be a little heavy handled in the job Wexford had Still, I love that Burden includes him in the investigation and he really solves the case He and Dora seem to have an ideal retired life and it was nice to have his grandson, Robin, involved Rendell would never had made such a mistake in her hay day and her editors aren t doing her any favors in not catching the error Maybe Wexford should have stayed retired

    There are aspects of the Victorian novel in this latest Wexford and the slow pace probably won t appeal to those who preferaction and less ratiocination.The plot centers on the murder of a female vicar whose sex, race and status as a single mother have not won her much sympathy among her conservative flock These factors open the door to multiple suspects and numerous red herrings.Reg Wexford in retirement seems to have become rather stuffy and even a bit of a crank, though the intelligenc There are aspects of the Victorian novel in this latest Wexford and the slow pace probably won t appeal to those who preferaction and less ratiocination.The plot centers on the murder of a female vicar whose sex, race and status as a single mother have not won her much sympathy among her conservative flock These factors open the door to multiple suspects and numerous red herrings.Reg Wexford in retirement seems to have become rather stuffy and even a bit of a crank, though the intelligence and humor are still to be found as Burden allows his former boss to participate in the investigation We are reminded repeatedly that Reg has no legal authority, yet he still seems to getcooperation from the people they encounter.Though I prefer her psychological suspense novels to the Wexford series, Rendell still delights with her quirky characters, sharp insights and convoluted plots She even managed to include a trademark linguistic clue and I missed it

    The murder mystery was dull, the plot disjointed and the social commentary jarring Maybe I m missing something, not being a regular reader of the these mysteries, but this did not feel like a contemporary novel So many weird references For instance, a female character talks about buying condoms for her teenage son, and how the pharmacist must have thought she was a transvestite Had to read that several times before I realized she meant that a woman shopping for condoms is unheard of Also, b The murder mystery was dull, the plot disjointed and the social commentary jarring Maybe I m missing something, not being a regular reader of the these mysteries, but this did not feel like a contemporary novel So many weird references For instance, a female character talks about buying condoms for her teenage son, and how the pharmacist must have thought she was a transvestite Had to read that several times before I realized she meant that a woman shopping for condoms is unheard of Also, being black and or gay is still a huge deal in Rendell s UK And you do not want to be an overweight or ugly woman in a Wexford mystery If you re a guy, you re fine

    I really appreciated how Rendell can put so much activity into a book and make it all seem relevant and potentially menacing at the same time On the other hand, I rarely fully comprehend her book titles although they probably actually relate to the story where many mystery books are merely puns on death stuff.At the base of this story, a vicar woman, escandelo has been murdered and she s really just too nice to have been killed, so who on earth Racism, fantacism, and accentism all play I really appreciated how Rendell can put so much activity into a book and make it all seem relevant and potentially menacing at the same time On the other hand, I rarely fully comprehend her book titles although they probably actually relate to the story where many mystery books are merely puns on death stuff.At the base of this story, a vicar woman, escandelo has been murdered and she s really just too nice to have been killed, so who on earth Racism, fantacism, and accentism all play parts here
