Library Journal Review

Perhaps he retired officially, but Wexford is eager to jump in when asked to by his former deputy. What to make of a strangled vicar in Wexford's 25th case (after The Vault)? Noteworthy: this series is on the cusp of its 50th anniversary! (Starts with From Doon with Death) [See Prepub Alert, 5/13/13.] (c) Copyright 2013.
