9780099602804: THE VEILED ONE (INSPECTOR WEXFORD)

Concealed by a shroud of dirty brown velvet was what looked like a heap of rags. In the desolate subterranean car park of the Barringdean Shopping Centre, Reg Wexford had been too preoccupied to notice anything out of the ordinary. Dorothy Sanders noticed, however, and pulling back the velvet curtain she made the grim discovery of a woman's body.

Inspector Michael Burden, for a while conducting the investigation without the help of Wexford's intuitive genius, blunders down a number of blind alleys before uncovering the truth....

From the Inside Flap:

Who would garrote a middle-aged housewife and leave her body in the parking garage of a suburban shopping mall? Chief Inspector Wexford is no sooner on the case than a car bomb's explosion lands him in the hospital. It's now up to Mike Burden to step in and solve the case. He's got a suspect . . . but will he be able to make him talk?
