The first Inspector Wexford story, originally written in 1964--and certainly ahead of its time in subject matter. Only 215 pages, but with looking up some obscure words, it was about a 6-hour read for me. The syntax seemed a little off, or maybe British English of current films and books has just gotten more American English in the last 50 years. Interesting characters, long before cell phones, DNA, Internet data bases, and CSI teams, puzzling out the clues is the only way forward.
G&M recommended latest - The Vault - too many holds so started with an earlier one, Monster in the Box - enjoyed it very much.
Checked out reviews for The Vault - not that great, so looked for another earlier one with Wexford in it. This is the first.
Update - got part way thru this then stalled. OK book, just not enough to stay high on my list.
Quick, easy, enjoyable book
