Ruth Rendell, Christopher Ravenscroft (Reading). Harm Done is another book by Ruth Rendell, however it is much different due to being part of the Inspector Wexford series. With Wexford, however, I have occasionally toiled. And never more so than with Harm Done which – reluctantly – I have put down, permanently, despite labouring to page 50 (of a mountainous 467). The crimes start off right from the beginning.

Book by Rendell, Ruth, Ravenscroft, Christopher
  • Inspector Wexford forges ahead, this time into three ambiguous reaches of the criminal landscape, of which two are particularly nasty and particularly ambiguous. This complex novel interweaves three stories -- the abduction and then return of two young women, the return of a convicted pedophile to his home after he has served his time, and the case of an abused wife that finally ends in murder. All of this, of course, is interlaced with developments in Wexford's own life, in this case mostly having to do with his relationship with his daughter Sylvia. I won't go into detail, to avoid playing the spoiler, but two of the stories raise really difficult questions about right and wrong. How many detective writers make you think, while simultaneously amusing you and producing a bang up mystery? My only regret about Ruth Rendell is that I don't have more of her books still left to read.

  • As usual, well-developed and human characters, any one of which could be the murderer. Also, I love how two different stories merged near the end. Love this author!

  • Extraordinarily well conceived and written. It did, however, contain a large number of silly errors, (spelling, word usage and punctuation) not the fault of the author but of the team that converted the original to the e-book. Try to get it right in future as these are the sorts of errors that detract from our enjoyment. You need to provide some mechanism which allows for instant correction or questions by your readers. As well, page numbers would certainly help to identify where an error can be found and corrected.
    It would certainly help for someone who knows Standard English as well as dialogue, to read the e-book before you begin distributing it.

  • Another great detective story featuring the likeable Wexford and Burden as they try to decipher clues, and trickier yet, human behavior

  • I was unpleasantly surprised to discover that the audio CD of Harm Done I recently bought turned out to be an abridged version. I was wonderng why it seemed to include a lot less detail than I recalled from reading the book a few years ago. A clue to do with knives--which emphasized the book's themes--simply wasn't there, for example.

    I don't see mention of abridged vs. entire story (unabridged) on the descriptions of this product that are currently online.

  • One of the finest mystery writers. Weaves in contemporary issues. compelling presentation of the crime. Beware,once you start reading you won't want to close the book until the last page. I suggest you start with book one.

  • I have been reading Ruth Rendell since I was in high school, 30 years ago. I thought when I read "Judgement in Stone" then that mystery writing could not get any better than that. How wrong I was. At a rate of two or three books per year, Ruth Rendell/Barbara Vine has honed her craft to a point where, I believe, no other mystery writer before or since has ever achieved such heights of excellence in brilliant prose, high-tension plotting, fascinating character study, as well as thought-provoking social commentary. Her body of work stands as a shining example of a writer's growth. I used to think heaven would be a warehouse full of undiscovered Dorothy Sayers manuscripts. Now I think heaven would be if Ruth Rendell goes on writing forever and that one can read her in the after-life.

  • It kept me on tenterhooks until the end. Loved it. Great author, Always know it will be a good read with her books.I enjoy the the English country settings for her settings. The rather weird English of which I used to be one of them. The descriptions of the vast difference in housing and the way her characters live. She brings the stories to life. Babs.
