9780099534839: The Best Man to Die (Wexford)

Chief Inspector Wexford wondered why the fatal Fanshawe car accident kept upsetting his concentration on the Hatton Murder. There couldn’t be a connection. Fanshawe had been a wealthy stockbroker; Charlie Hatton had been a cocky little lorry driver with some illegal dealing. He had driven his lorry down from Leeds to be best man at his friend’s wedding. But was it just coincidence that Hatton had been killed on the day following that of Mrs. Fanshawe’s regaining consciousness?

From the Inside Flap:

Who could have suspected that the exciting stag party for the groom would be the prelude to the murder of his close friend Charlie Hatton? And Charlie's death was only the first in a string of puzzling murders involving small-time gangsters, cheating husbands, and loose women. Now Chief Inspector Wexford and his assistant join forces with the groom to track down a killer . . .

About the Author:

Ruth Rendell has won many awards for her writing, including the 1990 Sunday Times Literary Award and the Crime Writer’s Cartier Diamond Dagger.
