End in Tears
The twentieth Wexford novel published by Hutchinson in 2005
It is impossible for Chief Inspector Wexford not to wonder how terrible it would be to discover that one of his daughters had been murdered. Sylvia has always been a cause for concern. Living alone with her two children, she is pregnant again.
The relationship between father and daughter has always been uneasy. But the current situation also provokes an emotional division between Wexford and his wife, Dora.
PD James and Ruth Rendell have dominated crime fiction for nearly four decades. Peter Guttridge finds both baronesses on top form with their latest offerings.
