Summary

A young girl is murdered in a cemetery. And Wexford's doctor has prescribed no alcohol, no rich food and, above all, no police work. When a young girl's body is found in a London cemetery and the local police, under the command of Wexford's nephew, are baffled, Wexford decides to brave his doctor's wrath and the condescension of the London police by doing a little investigating of his own. A compelling story of mysterious identity and untimely death, Murder Being Once Done is Rendell at her most sublime.

Greatly enjoyed

Really enjoyed this - also liked Robin Bailey's reading - haven't liked all those he has read in the series previously.

Guessed the outcome, got it wrong, guessed again - darn got it wrong again! Only half right at the end!

Do read and I hope you enjoy as much as I did
