About this product
- DescriptionINCLUDES AN EXCERPT OF RENDELL'S FINAL NOVEL, <i>DARK CORNERS</i> In the stunning climax to Rendell's classic 1998 vel <i>A Sight for Sore Eyes, </i>three bodies--two dead, one living--are entombed in an underground chamber beneath a picturesque London house. Twelve years later, the house's new owner pulls back a manhole cover, and discovers the vault--and its grisly contents. Only w, the number of bodies is four. How did somebody else end up in the chamber? And who knew of its existence? With their own detectives at an impasse, London police call on former Kingsmarkham Chief Inspector Wexford, w retired and living with his wife in London, to advise them. Wexford, missing the thrill of a good case, jumps at the chance to sleuth once again. His dogged detective skills and knack for figuring out the criminal mind take him to London neighborhoods, posh and poor, as he follows a complex trail leading back to the original murders a decade ago. But just as the case gets hot, a devastating family tragedy pulls Wexford back to Kingsmarkham, and he finds himself transforming from investigator into victim. Ingeniously plotted, <i>The Vault </i>is a masterful (<i>The Seattle Times</i>) sequel to <i>A Sight for Sore Eyes </i>that will satisfy both longtime Wexford fans and new Rendell readers alike.
