Simisola Free read ´ 109 Disappeared somewhere between the Benefit Office and the bus stop Or at least no one saw her get on the bus when it cameWhen the body of a young black woman is discovered Wexford must overcome his underlying prejudices to allow his investigative skills to succeed. Actual rating 35This book was intended for my Mystery Fiction class but the professor was unable to find an easy way to procure copies for us most publishers did not have it in print at the time Much later I found a copy at a used book sale and so I bought it on the strength of our professor s recommendationThinking back on the course this book would have been a perfect fit and its replacement The Laughing Policeman touches on similar themes This book s main story arc is that of Melanie Akande a young woman who is part of one of the few black families in Kingsmarkham She disappears one day but the search for her proves to be a difficult one Chief Inspector Wexford is called in to solve the case not only because it is on his turf but also because Melanie s father is his GPOver the course of the story Rendell touches on themes of race and class Wexford and others on the force deal with their own attitudes to race as they solve the case one twist in particular which I shall not give away really opens Wexford s eyes on that front Class and employment are two other important threads to the story Melanie is the daughter of upper middle class parents but she has resorted to the Job Centre to find work in her chosen field of performing arts which her parents feel is not good enough for her All roads lead to the Job Centre actually so it plays a major part in the case It ties to Wexford s personal life too his daughter and son in law are forced to go on the dole temporarilyThe book was well written reminiscent of A Judgement in Stone which is the only other Rendell novel I ve read I did read one of her books that she wrote as Barbara Vine and found it difficult to get through I left it unfinished fortunately this book is not like that It unfolds at a decent pace and the solution is fair and there are several twists that I did not see coming Also the explanation for the title which comes right at the end of the book is very bittersweet But still this isn t one of my favourites Perhaps having it studied in Mystery Fiction would have made it interesting

Simisola Free read ´ 109 Black people live in Kingsmarkham One of them is Wexford's new doctor Raymond Akande When the doctor's daughter Melanie goes missing the Chief Inspector takes than just a professional interest in the caseMelanie just down from university but unable to find a job. Another great Wexford book from RR Wexford is confronted with his own racism and shuttered opinion despite considering himself fairly enlightened His reflections on race the changing face of Britain and racism make for thought provoking reading and sadly in many ways it s all too relevant still Contrasting to this is a commentary on what has been seen as an increasing welfare state particularly with relevance to small affluent and predominantly white rural communities Some weighty themes and a lot of time is spent on them making for a complex read There s also some further character development especially around Reg and the relationships he has with his daughtersThe mystery itself is intriguing and has a fairly unexpected denouement so much so that I couldn t actually recall the guilty party at first thankfully Wexford provides a recap A lot goes on and I have to admit that my audiobook listening may have been distracted at times Still the audiobook version I read was narrated by Christopher Ravenscroft Burden himself He does an excellent job and I wish he narrated of them as he s far natural and expressive than the usual guyMaybe one I ll come back to one day when I m less distracted to pick apart the details
