24 May 2002 | by (British Columbia) – See all my reviews

I'm not a Ruth Rendell reader particularly but I have been taken by George Baker's cinematic gruff Inspector Reg Wexford. This tasty little morsel is all the more enhanced by a brief journey to France and an introduction to Oyster's on the half shell, washed down by brisk white wine and a brief introduction to the French laissez-faire attitude to less common sexual orientations. On the other hand, the repressed British stereotype never fails to provide a sad poignancy.An added treat is an altogether too brief appearance by Sylvia Syms.
