The Vault

Ruth Rendell: The Vault (USA 2012)

From the Publisher:
In the stunning climax to Rendell's classic 1998 novel A Sight for Sore Eyes, three bodies -- two dead, one living -- are entombed in an underground chamber beneath a picturesque London house. Twelve years later, the house's new owner pulls back a manhole cover and discovers the vault -- an it's grisly contents. Only now, the number of bodies is four. How did somehody else end up in the chamber? And who knew of its existence?

With their own detectives at an impasse, London police call an former Kingsmarkham Chief Inspector Wexford, now retired and living with his wife in London, to advise them on the unsolved murders. Wexford, missing the thrill of a good case, jumps at the chance to sleuth once again. His dogged detective skills and knack for figuring out the criminal mind take him to London neighborhoods, posh and poor, as he follows a complex trail leading back to the orignal murders a decade ago.

But just as the case gets hot, a devastating family tragedy pulls Wexford back to Kingsmarkham, and he finds himself transforming from investigator into victim. Masterfully ploted, The Vault is an ingenious sequel to A Sight for Sore Eyes that will satisfy both longtime Wexford fans and new Rendell readers alike.

The Vault

Ruth Rendell: The Vault (UK 2011)

From the Publisher:
'Don't forget,' Wexford said, 'I've lived in a world where the improbable happens all the time.'
However, the impossible has happened. Chief Inspector Reg Wexford has retired. He and his wife, Dora, now divide their time between Kingsmarkham and a coachhouse in Hampstead, belonging to their actress daughter, Sheila.

Wexford takes great pleasure in his books, but, for all the benefits of a more relaxed lifestyle, he misses being the law.

But a chance meeting in a London street, with someone he had known briefly as a very young police constable, changes everything. Tom Ede is now a Detective Superintendent, and is very keen to recruit Wexford as an adviser on a difficult case.

The bodies of two women and a man have been discovered in the old coal hole of an attractive house in St John's Wood. None carries identification. But the man's jacket pockets contain a string of pearls, a diamond and a sapphire necklace as well as other jewellery valued in the region of £40,000.

It is not a hard decision for Wexford. He is intrigued and excited by the challenge, and, in the early stages, not really anticipating that this new investigative role will bring him into extreme physical danger.

Ruth Rendell: The Vault. The New Wexford Novel. Hutchinson, ISBN 9780091937102 (August, 2011), 266 p., £18.99.
