Ruth Rendell is a great mystery writer. On this occasion, I found her writing difficult to follow. I gave up on Rendell after reading a couple of her books in which the characters were so despicable that I could hardly finish them. I was not aware of the Wexford series at the time. With a good mystery, one doesn't fall asleep after ten pages or one shouldn't use it as a means to fall asleep as you can lose characters and plot. I am glad I tried one as the inspector is quite delightful.
