    [The Monster in the Box] EBOOK READ How could I not give Ruth Rendell five stars? She is my hero I told Grace I realized looking at the back flap of this book that she's now 80; I'm hoping she lives to be at least 100 because I'm not sure what I'll do when there are No More Wexford Books Answer probably start reading all of them again which will be OK because I've already forgotten most of the plots anyway Which is my fault and due to brain waste not hers Anyway th

    [The Monster in the Box] EBOOK READ Another in the long line of Inspector Wexford novels by Ruth Rendell This is a good oneWexford suspects that a man he knew from long ago is a serial killer He has no proof of it just a minor suspicion but one which is strong enough to last many years In fact Wexford has put the 'monster' Eric Targo into a box one he will only infreuently open and study Hence the titleWhen a few new murders occur and Targo seem

The Monster in the Box

Review The Monster in the Box The Monster in the Box Summary ´ 2 The Monster in the Box takes Chief Inspector Wexford back to his days as a young policeman and to the man he has long suspected of murder serial murderOutside the house where Wexford investigated his first murder case a woman found strangled in her bedroom he noticed a short muscular man wearing a scarf and walking a dog He gave Wexford an unnerving stare Without any. How could I not give Ruth Rendell five stars She is my hero I told Grace I realized looking at the back flap of this book that she s now 80 I m hoping she lives to be at least 100 because I m not sure what I ll do when there are No More Wexford Books Answer probably start reading all of them again which will be OK because I ve already forgotten most of the plots anyway Which is my fault and due to brain waste not hers Anyway this is another fabulous Wexford novel as far as I m concerned there s no such thing as a non fabulous Wexford novel One of my favorite things about The Monster in the Box is seeing Wexford as a young man there s stuff in here about his early police career and how he met and fell in love with his wife And the writing is as usual beautiful smart and weirdly funny often for a book about murder I didn t find this book as suspenseful as some of the other Wexford novels partly I think because the murderer s identity is clear from the beginning and also because I just never totally bought in to the subplot which is about a young Pakistani girl who s suspected of being forced to marry against her will I really appreciate though the way Ruth Rendell keeps so much of the classic mystery novel in her books while at the same time making them totally contemporary full of current issues the forced marriage plot is a good example and characters I also LOVE it that she s so funny unusual for a mystery writer and so concerned with relationships as well as who killed who and why and how

Review The Monster in the Box

Review The Monster in the Box The Monster in the Box Summary ´ 2 Solid evidence Wexford began to suspect that this man Eric Targo he learned was the killerOver the years there are unsolved apparently motiveless murders in the town of Kingsmarkham and Wexford continues to uietly suspect that the increasingly prosperous Targo van driver property developer kennel owner and animal lover is behind themNow half a lifetime later Wexford s. In this one Inspector Wexford one day comes across Eric Targo a man he hasn t seen for years a man who he s convinced is a murderer by Wexford has not a shred of evidence beyond a few looks that Targo gave him and his being in certain places But how does he prove it and how does he stop him He has kept all his suspicions to himself all these years but now decides to tell his friend Mark Burden but Burden isn t inclined to believe him either but things begin to occur in the present that start to show that Wexford s suspicions may have something to them Alongside his DS Hannah Goldsmith along with Jenny have their own suspicions about one of Jenny s student s Tamima a sixteen year old who seems to be discontinuing her studies despite being a fairly bright student This was only my second Wexford book though it is no 22 in the series and I uite enjoyed it While it wasn t a mystery proper but to do with Wexford having to prove something that happened in the past there were still plenty of surprises towards the end that I certainly didn t see coming Since Wexford goes between past and present telling Mark Burden all that occurred with Targo in the past we also get a peek into Wexford s own life and career from when he first started working In fact though he doesn t tell Mark everything the reader gets to see how his own personal life played out as well Going between past and present there is a lot of reflection on how things were vis vis how they are now not only in how the police worked differences in technology etc media presence as well as in society itself s beliefs attitudes The book also deals with the clashes if one can call them that in a multicultural present stereotyping certain conclusions that people jump to despite trying to be sensitive to difference Alongside Targo s love of animals means that we meet not only his various dogs but even llamas and a lion and with them comes in a bit of craziness as well All in all I uite enjoyed the book and it might even be a good place to start despite being towards the end of the series Would love to read of the Wexford books sometime

Review The Monster in the Box The Monster in the Box Summary ´ 2 Pots Targo back in Kingsmarkham after a long absence Wexford tells his longtime partner Mike Burden about his suspicions but Burden dismisses them as fantasy Meanwhile Burden’s wife Jenny has suspicions of her own She believes that the Rahmans a highly respectable immigrant family from Pakistan may be forcing their daughter Tamima into an arranged marriage or worseI. I know Ruth Rendell is a good writer She must be because so many people enjoy her books I read in a review somewhere or other that Reg Wexford was the most real of all the fictional detectives and that s probably true But he is so DULL He doesn t have any bad habits except a desire to indulge in things that might not be good for him red wine nuts and snacks which he dutifully tries to resist to please his dreary wife uirky detectives like Jackson Brodie ones who sleep with unsuitable men Jane Tennant or drink too much Morse may not be real but they are interesting and sometimes fun I don t see how anyone involved in solving crimes like murder can be boring but Wexford is boring It s probably apt then that the actor that played him on TV was also dull as ditchwater so it s a shame that the person reading this book Nigel Anthony adopts a George Baker like accent for Wexford I would have liked to hear an alternative it would have been a bit of an adventureThe plot of this is competently enough handled but there is far too much nostalgia for my liking Wexford is constantly reminding us of what it was like in the old days compared to what it is like at the time the novel is set in It s all a bit of a clich no sex before marriage no divorce no internet etc all harking back to a time that was even dull than the present Added to this is an endless retelling of Wexford s personal love life an unexciting history of getting engaged to a girl he didn t like and being too decent to break it off until he did a brief entanglement with a woman and a rape scam then meeting his wife to be who was actually on holiday with her parents and Wexford with his mother This man has really livedAs if Wexford s drab existence banal personal history and stodgy personality weren t enough he got no satisfaction from the resolution of this case Nor did IOf the two personae of this author I much prefer the Barbara Vine novels several of which I have really enjoyed This particular Ruth Rendell novel passed the time but so does watching paint dry
