Road Rage : (A Wexford Case) Paperback
by Ruth Rendell
Part of the Wexford series
The seventeenth book to feature the classic crime-solving detective, Chief Inspector Wexford.
A by-pass is planned in the sleepy village of Kingsmarkham, a move that would destroy its peace and natural habitat forever.
Wexford's wife Dora joins the protest movement, but Wexford must be more circumspect.
Trouble is expected. Before the protesters even have a chance to make their presence felt, the badly decomposed body of a young woman is discovered.
Burden believes he knows the identity of the murderer, but Wexford is not convinced.
Just as Wexford is about to investigate the murder, a number of people disappear - including Dora Wexford.
The Chief Inspector must battle with his powerful emotions and solve the case immediately, before his wife is placed in any mortal danger...

Review by AndrewCottingham
The publishers blurb says that Ruth Rendell is "one of the gretest novelists presently at work in our language". This must expalin why I found this copy in a charity op shop at 10 cents. Probably a true reflection of the books literary value. A very weak and predictable plot - hardly a thriller. It is on the list of books to dispose off if I have storage problems.
