9780099534860: Murder Being Once Done (Wexford)

On doctor's orders, Wexford is supposed to be resting. But he can't resist taking a peek into the investigation of a macabre crime.

In a vast, gloomy, overgrown London cemetery, a girl is found murdered. A girl with a name that isn't here, and little else that is. A girl with no friends, no possessions and no past.

Chief Inspector Wexford has been sent to London by his doctor for a rest — no late nights, no rich food, no alcohol, and above all, no criminal investigation. To add insult to injury, it is Wexford's own nephew, Howard, who is leading the investigation into the macabre mystery. And even though Howard and his subordinates might think he's out of his league, and even though his doctor wouldn't approve, Wexford can't resist just taking a look at things for himself.

From the Inside Flap:

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.

With her Inspector Wexford novels, Ruth Rendell, winner of the Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Award, has added layers of depth, realism and unease to the classic English mystery. For the canny, tireless, and unflappable policeman is an unblinking observer of human nature, whose study has taught him that under certain circumstances the most unlikely people are capable of the most appalling crimes.

From the Back Cover:

"Chief Inspector Wexford is one of the most admirable presences in mystery fiction today and Ruth Rendell. . . retains her place of highest distinction in the field."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Rendell is a master of the form.
--The Washington Post Book World

"Undoubtedly one of the best writers of English mysteries and chiller-killer plots."
--Los Angeles Times

"The best mystery writer anywhere in the English-speaking world."
--The Boston Globe

Descrizione libro Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The seventh book to feature the classic crime-solving detective, Chief Inspector Wexford. It seems fitting that the final resting place of a girl s body should be in a graveyard. But this is no peaceful burial. This is a brutal murder scene. Under strict orders from his doctor to indulge in no criminal investigation, Wexford is sent to London for a break away from the pressures of the Kingsmarkham police force. But then he discovers that his nephew Howard is heading the investigation into the macabre murder of Loveday Morgan, whose body was found abandoned in Kenbourne Cemetery. Despite opposition from Howard and his team, Wexford is drawn to the case. And when he unearths Loveday s connection to a religious cult whose leader was imprisoned for sexual absue, he relentlessly pursues this sinister new lead.
