Most people would have screamed. Mrs Hathall made no sound. She had seen death many times before, but she had never before seen a death by violence. Heavily, she plodded across the room and descended the stairs to where her son waited. ‘There’s been an accident’, she said. ‘Your wife’s dead.’
Chief Inspector Wexford could discover no motive, no reason and no suspect – all he had were his intuitive suspicions. Probably he was reading meaning where there was none; probably Angela Hathall really had picked up a stranger, and that stranger had killed her. But why such doubt? Was Wexford becoming cynical and untrusting – or was this simply one of the most ingenious crimes he had ever tackled?

Great story, well told
I cant compare as I have never read the book, but I loved the voices so I could say yes on that basis
Has to be Wrexford - just simply the character of the man
Cant think of anything applicable that wouldnt spoil the plot
If you like a gentle mystery.well told, with characters you can believe in then listen in, it was a lovely way to while away the endless drive on the M40 commute
