Inhaltsangabe zu „Harm Done“ von Ruth Rendell

With Harm Done, Rendell has added a remarkable strand of acute social commentary to a book that still functions as an utterly compelling piece of detective fiction. With the controversial subject of paedophilia, she takes the mainstay of her work--problems of modern life--to a level of passion and commitment that gives the book a truly powerful underpinning. Back in the familiar Sussex town of Kingsmarkham, Rendell's dogged sleuth Wexford is investigating the strange abductions of two young girls: Rachel, a bright middle-class student, and Lizzie, a mentally disabled 16-year-old living with her unsympathetic parents on a grim council estate. When both girls return home, apparently unharmed, Wexford is faced with a curious mystery: what really happened to them? As Wexford begins to uncover the disturbing truth, the dark psychological world that Rendell is so adroit at exploring suddenly comes into focus. And her gift for sharp but concise characterisation remains untouchable as in the case of a reluctant witness: " ''We don't talk about that sort of thing'. She very nearly but not quite tossed her head." --Barry Forshaw In Harm Done, Rendell has added a remarkable strand of acute social commentary to a book that still functions as an utterly compelling piece of detective fiction.

Ein ehrenwerter Tod

Ein klassischer Kriminalroman, der sich zu lesen lohnt. Die Triestiner Atmosphäre rundet das Buch ab

SOG

Ein spannender tiefgründiger Thriller, der mir unter die Haut ging.

Die Verlassene

Ein unblutiger, dafür aber ein emotional sehr berührender Psychothriller, der einen mit einem unbehaglichen Gefühl zurücklässt.

Prinzesschn

Sechs mal zwei

Spannende Fortsetzungskrimi mit einem etwas verworrenen Einstieg, der sich dann immer mehr steigert. Absolut empfehlenswert!!!
