"[Rendell is] undoubtedly one of the best writers of English mysteries and chiller-killer plots."-- Los Angeles Times It was better than a hotel, this anonymous room on a secluded side street of a small country town. No register to sign, no questions asked, and for five bucks a man could have three hours of undisturbed, illicit lovemaking. Then one evening a man with a knife turned the love nest into a death chamber. The carpet was soaked with blood -- but where was the corpse? Meanwhile, a beautiful, promiscuous woman is missing--along with the bundle of cash she'd had in her pocket. The truth behind it all will keep even veteran mystery fans guessing through the very last page. Praise for Wolf to the Slaughter "The best mystery writer anywhere in the English-speaking world." -- The Boston Globe "You cannot afford to miss Ruth Rendell." -- The New York Times Book Review "For readers who have almost given up on mysteries . . . Rendell may be just the woman to get them started again." --Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine

display_descriptionAnita Margolis, young, beautiful, carefree, has vanished into thin air. She left her home to attend a party one wet evening, but has not been seen since. She is reported missing soon after by her brother, whom she shared a flat with, the acclaimed but eccentric artist Rupert Margolis. Inspector Burden quickly forms an impression of a wanton young girl simply gone off somewhere with a boyfriend having neglected to let anyone know. After all, she was that sort of woman, in Burden's opinion. However, Wexford has his doubts, and those doubts will soon be confirmed, and they will soon find themselves enmeshed in a case that will throw every assumption they make into doubt.
