Means of Evil and Other Stories by Ruth Rendell

Means of Evil and Other Stories - Ruth Rendell

 

Nigel Anthony 5 Hours 31 Mins

Description: Nigel Anthony's reading sets this recording of five short mysteries by Rendell above others in the genre. Chief inspector Wexford and inspector Burden investigate poisonings, baby-swapping, theft, and forgery in "Means of Evil," "Old Wives Tales," "Ginger and the Kingsmarkham Chalk Circle," "Achilles Heel," and "When the Wedding Was Over." The venues vary in these classic English mysteries from Kingsmarkham to the south of France and California, but the characters, for the most part, lack development somewhat. Puzzle-solving listeners may enjoy these short, flat pieces,but they are perhaps not the best examples her work.
