“An Unkindness of Ravens” by Ruth Rendell

An Unkindness of Ravens

An Unkindness of Ravens

A Wexford Mystery, this is classic Ruth Rendell mystery with Wexford joining the dots to come up with the murderer. When a neighbour’s husband goes missing, Wexford initially thinks it merely a case of him going off with another woman, but it turns out there are more sinister goings on. A paint salesman is murdered, it turns out he was a bigamist, those frequent sales trips were to see his other wife not to sell paints to the denizens of Ipswich. The ravens of the title are a group of teenage feminists, who have an aggressive attitude towards the male sex, which might go further than merely taking self defence classes. Two other males have been stabbed by young women in the Kingsmarkham area. For once my hunch as to who the killer was turned out to be right (no spoilers here), with Agatha Christie I always suspect the wrong person.

About jimholroyd365

Hi, my name is Jim, I am an Englishman living in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi. I started this blog to share my interests, my photos and to make sense of my world. I take a lot of photographs of various subjects, some of which I intend to share here. I collect diecast cars and get the same thrill at 50 as I did when I was 8, when I find a car I'm searching for, Don't worry, I have a separate blog for this hobby. Please feel free to comment and ask questions on what I blog. I am quite new to this blogging, I was inspired by reading a book, which began as a blog of a London Ambulance Driver: "Blood, Sweat and Tea". I hope my blog will be entertaining and amusing, I did try stand up comedy in the UK and had seven gigs before I left to teach English in Georgia. I love reading and so the blog will include book reviews of books as I finish them.I don't know about which direction this blog will go, I am a great believer in serendipity...let the journey begin...
