Ruth Rendell has written some really good books but, IMO, this is not one of them. This story is not long at all as was thr other book in this series. The premise (rock concert) would have been a mystery I would have ordinarily avoided but since it was an Inspector Wexford I gave it a try on CD.
As usual from Ruth Rendell the book is well written and well paced. I find most of her stories are bit hard to swallow. The plot usually starts well but always ends up being quite unbelievable which is disappointing. Generally I didn't mind reading it but will see if it improves on a second reading.
