9780099534792: A New Lease of Death (Wexford)

It's impossible to forget the violent bludgeoning to death of an elderly lady in her home. Even more so when it's your first murder case.

Wexford believed he'd solved Mrs. Primero's murder fifteen years ago. It was no real mystery. Everyone knew Painter, her odd-job man, had done it. There had never been any doubt in anyone's mind. Until now.

Henry Archery's son is engaged to Painter's daughter. Only Archery can't let the past remain buried. He wants to prove Wexford wrong and in probing into the lives of the witnesses questioned all those years ago, he stirs up more than old ghosts.

About the Author:

RUTH RENDELL has won many awards for her writing, including the Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger, the Sunday Times Literary Award, and the Crime Writers' Association Cartier Diamond Dagger.

From AudioFile:

Wexford's first murder conviction (and hanging) rears its head after 16 years when the daughter of the murderer wants to prove her father innocent before she gets married. This multifaceted mystery evolves into a breathtaking and unusual love story, which sounds, by turns, like a moving sermon or a narration by a master storyteller. Rendell, always the brilliant wordsmith, presents reader Anthony with the perfect vehicle to demonstrate his fantastic range of voices and appropriately placed dramatic pauses. Seldom has a letter been more effectively read or a finer distinction made between fantasy and reality. A gem in every way. S.G.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
