Journal Entry 1 by wingfeltrewing from Zografou - Ζωγράφου, Attica Greece on Monday, October 8, 2018
After a truffle-hunting dog unearths a human hand instead of a precious fungus, Chief Inspector Wexford and his team proceed to interrogate everyone who lives nearby to see if they can turn up a match for the errant appendage among the eighty-five people who have disappeared over the past decade in this part of England. Then, when a second body is discovered nearby, Wexford experiences a feeling that's become a rarity for the veteran policeman: surprise. As Wexford painstakingly moves to resolve these multiple mysteries, long-buried secrets are brought to daylight, and Ruth Rendell once again proves why she has been hailed as our greatest living mystery writer.

This is not an intense page turner that keeps the reader on edge. Sometimes, that is a good thing. I was in the mood for a lighter read and this hit the spot. The detective work is still interesting and I like that the author adds in the bit concerning female genital mutilation.

Dient realise this was the 21st Wexford novel so probably not a good one to start with, knowing nothing about the main characterx' past ( I generally like to read them in the right order) I did like the slightly dark sense of humour that Wexford displays but as far as the "crime story" element goes, the story didn't quite grab me. It wasn't a bad story but perhaps not quite as engaging as I would have liked it to be.

Received from @Kinedi via the Bookcrossing forum. So happy to receive this book-it has travelled much further than I ever have!

Journal Entry 13 by TheHappyHippy at Lanark, Scotland United Kingdom on Thursday, February 3, 2022
I've never read Ruth Rendell and I don't think she is an author I'll read again. I found the story quite slow, the characters overly simplistic and the writing style hasn't aged well with lots of implicit racism, sexism and general disgruntlement at the censure of 'political correctness'. But that's only my opinion. I know Rendell is a hugely successful author so proves the addage that you can't please all people.

Received in the post as a bonus book from TheHappyHippy today along with My Name is Why. Thanks very much. This book will eventually find its way to the Cameo Cafe bookshelf but both my husband and myself will probably read it first. (The Cameo bookshelf needs a major sort-out by me as we've been closed for over two years due to the Pandemic).
