Description

Acknowledged as one of today's premier mystery writers, Ruth Rendell has won three Edgar Awards and four Gold Dagger Awards. She received the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America and was awarded the Commander of the British Empire. Among her most popular books are those in the Inspector Wexford series. Harm Done presents the inspector with a most volatile challenge: the various guises of domestic abuse. The residents of a shabby housing complex in the London suburb of Kingsmarkham are furious. A convicted pedophile, released from prison, has returned to their community. At the same time, two young women disappear, each returning several days later with little memory of where she has been. As Wexford investigates, Kingsmarkham is rocked by violence and murder. To prevent further harm, the inspector must coax some surprising motives from the reluctant suspects. Narrator Davina Porter gives an absorbing performance of Rendell's finely-crafted, suspenseful work.

Professional reviews

"Children go missing, a pedophile is released and a spouse is abused. These and other problems plague Inspector Wexford and his police force. Ravenscroft is so comfortable in his roles as Inspector and narrator that his own personality rarely reveals itself. As seamless transitions from character to character assist the listener through the abridgment, catching the culprits takes second place to the pleasure of a good story and a good performance. M.B.K.
