Journal Entry 1 by geishabird from Toronto, Ontario Canada on Friday, December 21, 2012
Chief Inspector Wexford is having a busy month. First two young women are taken from a bus stop; then a pedophile is released from jail, triggering violence from members of the community. During the course of these events a colleague is killed. Then a child is stolen from her crib in the middle of the night, and later her father is found murdered. On top of this Wexford must deal with the disintegration of his daughter's marriage and her new job in a shelter for victims of domestic violence, a job that lands her right in the middle of several of the cases he is working on. How does the inspector deal with these cases as well as the crises that are arising from his own family?

This is a better-than-average Wexford mystery (and the average ones are usually very good): a complex and interesting story told well with many intriguing twists and turns. Ruth Rendell seems to have no great affection for those who reside in lower income housing projects, but other than that, a very good read.
