The first book to feature the classic crime-solving detective, Chief Inspector Wexford. An ordinary life. An extraordinary death. The trampled grass led to the body of Margaret Parsons. With no useful clues and a victim known only for her mundane life, Chief Inspector Wexford is baffled until he discovers Margaret's dark secret - a collection of rare books, each inscribed from a secret lover and signed only as 'Doon'. Who is Doon? And could the answer hold the key to Wexford solving his first case? 'If crime fiction is currently in rude good health, its practitioners striving to better the craft and keep it fresh, vibrant and relevant, this is in no small part thanks to Ruth Rendell.' Ian Rankin

MEDIA REVIEWS
"As Wexford's investigation gathers pace, we experience the conflicts and contradictions of the Sixties when the social fabric was turned inside-out . . . a classic mystery, as true to life now as it was half a century ago." * Mail Online *
"One of the best novelists writing today" -- P.D. James
"Ruth Rendell has quite simply transformed the genre of crime writing. She displays her peerless skill in blending the mundane, commonplace aspects of life with the potent murky impulses of desire and greed, obsession and fear" * Sunday Times *
"Rendell never fails to come up trumps, and her millions of admirers will eagerly consume this offering as they have all the others." -- The Irish Times
"A firm grasp of social concerns ensure that her novels are reflective of our own times, as well as hugely absorbing" -- Louise Welsh * The Times *
