Just a couple things.

This is a passable procedural, but for whatever reason the density just isn't what I thought it would be based on the previous two Rendell novels I've read. Density. Immersiveness? I don't know. It just didn't seem as enveloping as her other two. Perhaps this is due to this being her first novel?

I will say, the twist at the end, regarding the identity of Doon, was kind of pushing it for 1964. Tame by today's standards, but I imagine the impact was greater fifty years ago. But this was largely a procedural, and the cast of characters was so small that it really wasn't a surprise when the killer was revealed. Perhaps the book fit too snug into the genre itself, but I just found myself passably interested.

What I kept thinking were two things: one, that this book seemed a natural successor to Agatha Christie, even if there have been more between the two authors. It was a little pat, almost like a locked-door mystery even though it took place in a town and surrounding areas rather than a single house. A little limited in that way.

The second thing was this: there have been twenty-odd books in the Wexford series, this being the first. I've read the last (though I think there's another coming soon) and it takes place at the beginning of Wexford's retirement. All that's fine, but in this first novel not only is Wexford a Detective Chief Inspector Rebus won his rank of Detective Inspector, one step down, as a result of his first novel outing and one it took McRae seven novels to achieve DI), Rendell gives Wexford's age as 52. My experience has been, in these types of serial procedurals, that they follow a real-world timeline. That would make Wexford nearly 90 by the time we got to [b:The Vault|9785183|The Vault (Inspector Wexford, #23)|Ruth Rendell|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1328411256s/9785183.jpg|14675036]. Now, I know it doesn't have to follow such a time line, but it took me out of things from time to time.

Not a perfect start, and as I have a week before classes, I'll start the next one and see how it goes. ( )

This first Wexford police procedural shows its age; its 1964 moral stereotypes date the story badly. I had the answer way before the plodding detectives figure it out, and then, oh horrors! the truth is revealed. I shouldn't make fun of it. At least Rendell acknowledged such things could happen. But she conforms to the hysteria of the day, alas. ( )

It's okay. I was excited to read this after reading A Sight for Sore Eyes a while back, but I don't think this really comes close to that. The shocking twist is passé-to-kind-of-gross now. I do like the little bits of Wexford's character we get here though, and I wouldn't mind reading another one. ( )

A clever mystery introducing the character Inspector Wexford. Unfortunately, I did not find it particularly memorable. ( )

I came across this mystery--Ruth Rendell's first ever. Although I enjoyed it, I don't recommend it wholeheartedly. It was quite obvious, from a somewhat stilted literary device and a rather oldfashioned viewpoint (it was first published in 1962 after all), what the big reveal turned out to be. So, as a mystery, I can't give it high marks. But as a first time effort, and as a character study, it showed the great promise that Ms. Rendell/Ms. Vine turned out to possess. Only for diehard fans, I think. ( )
