Description

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.

Loved it!

'The Vault' follows on from 'A sight for Sore Eyes' thus adding a great deal of depth to this book. While it does stand alone it would be a shame not to listen to 'A sight for Sore Eyes' first.
Ruth Rendell is a truly gifted story teller. Unlike so many authors today she is able to draw the reader/listener into a web of intrigue without feeling the need to be blasphemous or to use extensive profanities - a great listen!

Really enjoyed this

The Wexford novels are usually very good and this was no exception. Nicely read, it kept my attention going.

A little choppy but I will always love Wexford!

Would you try another book from Ruth Rendell and/or Nigel Anthony?

Yes, I will always follow Wexfords adventures!

Would you be willing to try another book from Ruth Rendell? Why or why not?

Yes I am a Wexford fan. I read Wexford to relax with an old friend. I trust Wexford!

What three words best describe Nigel Anthony’s voice?

An old friend

Do you think The Vault needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

We need more of Wexford in his retirement role. He will make a great consultant or the head of some new department with other retired inspectors.

Any additional comments?

It is a great series and feels like you know the family! Both on the job and when he is retired!

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.
