An Unkindness Of Ravens
By

Rating
New or Used: 6 copies from $7.00
UNKINDNESS- the collective word for a group of ravens. They are not particularly predatory birds. . . but neither are they soft and submissive. Detective Chief Inspector Wexford thought he was merely doing a neighbourly good deed when he agreed to talk to Joy Williams about her missing husband. And he certainly didn't expect to be investigating a most unusual homicide.

About the Author

Ruth Rendell was an exceptional crime writer, and will be remembered as a legend in her own lifetime. Her groundbreaking debut novel, From Doon With Death, was first published in 1964 and introduced the reader to her enduring and popular detective, Inspector Reginald Wexford, who went on to feature in twenty-four of her subsequent novels. With worldwide sales of approximately 20 million copies, Rendell was a regular Sunday Times bestseller. Her sixty bestselling novels include police procedurals, some of which have been successfully adapted for TV, stand-alone psychological mysteries, and a third strand of crime novels under the pseudonym Barbara Vine. Very much abreast of her times, the Wexford books in particular often engaged with social or political issues close to her heart. Rendell won numerous awards, including the Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger for 1976's best crime novel with A Demon in My View, a Gold Dagger award for Live Flesh in 1986, and the Sunday Times Literary Award in 1990. In 2013 she was awarded the Crime Writers' Association Cartier Diamond Dagger for sustained excellence in crime writing. In 1996 she was awarded the CBE and in 1997 became a Life Peer. Ruth Rendell died in May 2015. Her final novel, Dark Corners, is scheduled for publication in October 2015

Reviews

Hubbell is a slight woman, fiftyish, a former librarian, and now a beekeeper, living alone on a 100-acre farm in the Missouri Ozarks. With an unsatisfactory marriage behind her, she is determined to be independent, even to the extent of keeping her old trucks in running order and felling trees in her woodlot. In a series of perceptive essays, she describes the world around her with a fresh and discerning eye, reveling in the natural beauty of her mountain home and its wildlife. With her active and inquiring mind she is constantly asking questions: Why do the sawfly caterpillers follow the leader? How do opposums learn to play possum? Her delightful, witty book will appeal to all those who are intrigued by the natural world. Evelyn G. Callaway, California Native Plant Soc., Ridgecrest

"A brilliant reshuffling of a pack of clues . . . Rendell at her richest" * Sunday Times * "Well-plotted . . . baffling . . . Still the tops" * Sunday Telegraph * "A climax as chilling and unexpected as any she's perpetrated before" * The Times *
