RENDELL, Ruth. The Veiled One. London : Hutchinson, (1988). First Edition. Pp (8),1-[278],(2). 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. The fourteenth novel in the Inspector Wexford series. "The woman's body lay between a silver Escort and a dark-blue Lancia. Concealed by a shroud of dirty brown velvet, it looked like a heap of rags. , Roy Wexfords had been too preoccupied to notice anything out of the ordinary, just the time and a red car driving past him, rather too fast. Burden called nhim at home with the grim news later that evening. The womanm had been attacked from behind, perhaps with a thin length of cord or wire. Before Inspector Wexford can delve deeper into this curious homicide, he, too, faces death. And Burden, for a while conducting the investigation without the help of his chief's instinctive analytical genius, will blunder down a number of blind alleys... . The Veiled One is dark, complex and full of surprises. Even by Ruth Rendell's superlative standards, this is probably the most exciting Inspector Wexford mysteryto date." - from the dj. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 25.00
