Reviews

"No one surpasses Ruth Rendell when it comes to stories of obsession, istability, and malignant coincidence."--Stephen King "Unequivocally the most brilliant mystery writer of our time.--Patricia Cornwell "Ruth Rendell is my dream writer. Her prose style...has the disquieting intimacy of an alien touch in the dark."--Marilyn Stasio "The New York Times Book Review " "'Subtle' is an inadequate word for Ruth Rendell. So are 'crafty, ' 'cunning, ' 'clever' and 'sly.'"--Marilyn Stasio "New York Times Book Review " "A novel by Ruth Rendell is like none other..... The results are seldom what we expect them to be, and that is part of this author's special genius."--Robert Croan "Pittsburgh Post-Gazette " "[Rendell's] new Inspector Wexford novel, the 24th in the series, is as refined, probing, and intelligent as prior installments... She integrates her themes of religious belief, class in England, and womanhood so effortlessly that the book is never less than a pleasure."--Charles Finch "USA Today " "If you're unfamiliar with Ruth Rendell, if you've somehow managed to miss her sixty or so books ... then, congratulations: Your reading life is about to get infinitely richer."--Jonathan Shapiro "Los Angeles Times " "Rendell unspools anentertaining cast of characters... Lovely touches of detail... Best of all forWexford fans, the book affords some terrific moments between the retired sleuthand [Detective Superintendent Mike] Burden."--Daneet Steffens "Boston Globe " "It's a pleasure to report that Ruth Rendell, at the age of 82 and after publishing more than 60 books, has given us yet another gem. A pleasure but not a surprise, since Rendell has for years, along with her friend P.D. James, been bringing new sophistication and psychological depth to the traditional English mystery."--Washington Post "The characters jump off the page. The page-to-page surprises are so clever that the reader is left agape at each twist and turn. The pieces fit together brilliantly.--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Rendell has for years, along with her friend P.D. James, been bringing new sophistication and psychological depth to the traditional English mystery."--Washington Post "Inspector Wexford [is] the hardest-working retired policeman in show biz.... Ruth Rendell explores bigotry in its various forms, from overt racism to unconscious assumptions in otherwise open-minded people."--Charlotte News & Observer "Ror readers who have loved this series over the decades, it's still nice to spend time with the Wexfords."--The Cleveland Plain-Dealer "Ruth Rendell outdoes herself in NO MAN'S NIGHTINGALE, her 24th Inspector Wexford novel. In this tangled and labyrinthine book, she tackles social problems as well as solves the murder of a prominent woman in the community...Rendell doesn't let her fans down."--Bookreporter "I'm happy to report that RuthRendell's "No Man'sNightingale" is as absorbingand rewarding as her other Inspector Wexford novels... Supporting charactersstand out. So does Rendell's typically clear-eyed examination of a vexingsocial issue: In this case it's racism."--The Seattle Times
