From Doon with Death by Ruth Rendell, 226 pages, read by Tracy, on 01/14/2014

There is nothing extraordinary about Margaret Parsons, a timid housewife in the quiet town of Kingsmarkham, a woman devoted to her garden, her kitchen, her husband. Except that Margaret Parsons is dead… Who would kill someone with nothing to hide? Inspector Wexford, the formidable chief of police, is baffled – until he discovers Margaret’s dark secret: a trove of rare books, each volume inscribed by a passionate lover identified only as Doon… the case builds with relentless momentum to a shocking finale as clever as it is unexpected.
