Chief Inspector Reg Wexford has retired. He and his wife, Dora, now divide their time between Kingsmarkham and their daughter, Sheila’s, coach house in Hampstead. Wexford takes great pleasure in his books, but, for all the benefits of a more relaxed lifestyle, he misses being the law. But a chance meeting with an old acquaintance in a London street changes everything. Tom Ede is now a Detective Superintendent, and is very keen to recruit Wexford as an adviser on a difficult case. The bodies of two women and a man have been discovered in the old coal hole of an attractive house in St John's Wood. None carries identification. But the man's pockets contain expensive jewelry. To Wexford, this is definitely a case worth coming out of retirement for. He is intrigued and excited by the challenge, but unaware that this new investigative role will bring him into extreme physical danger.

Chief Inspector Wexford is back!
...only he's not really police anymore. In this slow paced story a retired Wexford is asked to assist the London police.
Speaking of slow... I wonder if the story would have felt as much slow paced had another narrator read it. I had to fight sleep quite often due to his non existant speed...
Ruth Rendell's plot is complex and intricately woven and that I have enjoyed. However I would not recommend it as a starting book should an interested reader never have read any Wexford novel by Rendell before.
