Description

With floods threatening both the town of Kingsmarkham and his own home and no end to the rain in sight, Chief Inspector Wexford already has his hands full when he learns that two local teenagers have gone missing along with their sitter, Joanna Troy. Their hysterical mother is convinced that all three have drowned, and as the hours stretch into days Wexford suspects a case of kidnapping, perhaps connected with an unusual sect called the Church of the Good Gospel. But when the sitter's smashed-up car is found at the bottom of a local quarry - occupied by a battered corpse - the investigation takes on a very different hue.

Review quote

'Chief Inspector Wexford is Rendell's most enduring and best creation.' -- The Daily Telegraph 'As usual, Rendell mirrors aspects of the case in the leading characters' personal lives and her cleverly understated writing bathes them and their actions in a glow of reality that sets her writing above that of her many imitators.' -- Time Out 'As always with Ruth Rendell's intricately thought-out novels, nothing is as simple as it seems.' -- The Sunday Express 'Superb plotting and psychological insight make this another Rendell gripper.' -- Woman & Home 'Utterly absorbing.' -- The Sunday Telegraph
