The Vault by Ruth Rendell (Inspector Wexford)

An underground vault with four bodies is found underneath a picturesque London home–and one of them was put in there much later.

I love Ruth Rendell but I was really bored by The Vault, a sequel of sorts to A Sight for Sore Eyes, which I really enjoyed. I think it’s that I don’t really care for Inspector Wexford as a character. I’ve read a few of those books and I haven’t liked a single one. I also found the mystery just not that thrilling. I kept getting the characters confused, which is not at all what I expect from Rendell.

Oh well–she is prolific enough that I can live with that.
