Put On By Cunning, aka in America as Death Notes is another book off my to-be-read shelves, an enjoyable read. It was first published in 1981. The epigraph indicates just what is to follow: So shall you hear €¦ Of deaths put on by cunning and forc'd cause; Fall'n on th'inventors' heads € all this can.

Its window was stacked full of paperback science fiction, but some of the books had tumbled down, and those which lay with their covers exposed had their gaudy and bizarre designs veiled in dust.

I really like Ruth Rendell's earlier Inspector Wexford books, unlike her other psychologically, weird books, sometimes . Her earlier books (which includes "Put On By Cunning") are some of the best mysteries I have ever read.

The eleventh book to feature the classic crime-solving detective, Chief Inspector Wexford. Sir Manuel Camargue, Kingsmarkham's very own celebrity flautist, dies tragically on a snowy night. His death is met with a ruling of misadventure and appears to be an open-and-shut-case. However Wexford, as the investigating officer, has a few niggling doubts. Nineteen years later, Camargue's entrancing daughter, Natalie, now a considerable heiress, suddenly reappears in Kingsmarkham

Ruth Rendell, however, doesn't keep the investigation in Kingsmarkham for this one, as California and the south of France also play geographical roles as well. Rendell is at home whereever her setting and "Death Notes" is well-written and easily captures the reader's attention.

Rendell is a master of the police procedural and with her indomitable inspector, this episode in a long running series is right on key! (Billyjhobbsr.

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

Wexford gets in the the grip of one of his obsessions when he suspects a crime has been committed and the death of an older musician of international fame might not have been accidental. Nobody believes Wexford (except his trusted partner Burden, of course.) Wexford's superiors are unwilling to allow him to entertain what they believe are baseless suspicions.Wexford, however, is convinced that there is something wrong about Natalie, the late flutist's daughter, who came back unexpectedly into her father's life after almost two decades of absence. Is Natalie who she says she is? Why is she behaving so suspiciously?

The dedicated detective is so committed to finding the truth that he travels to California on his own dime to find out the truth about his case. As readers, we get the added bonus of seeing Wexford and his wife Dora travel in the US and their reactions to this country.

Wexford's search for the truth does not end in the US, though. We will also see him travel to France in his attempt to crack this difficult case. In the end, however, the readers will still be surprised by the tangled web of complexities and coincidences in one of Wexford's most challenging cases.

I believe this is one of the best novels in the Wexford/Burden series. In my opinion, though, Wexford novels are less engaging than Rendell's stand-alone mysteries. For this reason, I give the book four stars.
Ruth Rendell, is one of my favorite authors. I have read all of her books but am enjoying re-reading some of her earlier works. Her plots are so intricate and she began in the 50's so I can read them again.. My kindle enables me to pick up these reissued copies at bargain rates. I am enjoying seeing how her style evolved and as I grew up in England I can relate to the scenes and the mores of that decade. For me it evokes nostalgia,but any anglophile will find it facinating.
Rendell only gets better. Her characters are finely drawn and behave in believable ways, always a satisfactory element in a novel. The plot has sufficient previews that are subtle enough not to allow accurate prediction of the ending, but they are there. There is none of the improbable surprises that ruin an ending by destroying that wonderful sense of suspended disbelief. The book is a good read, well worth the time.

This story was hard for me to follow, unlike the other Wexford novels, among my favorite whodunits. There seemed to be so many words and deeds and characters to consider and sort out that I gave up guessing who the killers were and gamely kept reading. The last few pages gave me what I wanted. Good effort, Ms Rendell. Keep 'em coming.

Even though this early Ruth Rendell is dated--DNA evidence today would solve the plot, which takes place at least thirty years ago, almost instantly--the novel is suspenseful and clever. Inspector Wexford has been a fine character for Rendell; his astuteness and humanity alone are enough to keep the reader interested. Definitely a good read--as just about all of Rendell or Vine's fiction is.
Ruth Rendall is a very good author, I thoroughly enjoy her books. It is a pity, however, that whoever types for Kindle is not good at English grammar. The style of the books is muddled from time to time by faulty grammar or by misquoting a phrase. Detracts from the pleasure of readingjj
I really liked this book the twist and turns kept you guessing right up to the end .He did slot of traveling and the descriptions were so very good you almost felt like you were with him.looking forward to the next book as always
