"Story marred by unconvincing romance"
I usually enjoy Ruth Rendell's books, including her Wexford series. However, this is one of the weaker books, in my opinion. I now recall seeing a TV version of the story and thinking that the romance between the recently widowed Inspector Burden and the mother of a missing child (a case he was working on) was unconvincing and that it spoiled an otherwise good detective story involving two missing children: the two cases separated by over a decade. Ruth Rendell is excellent when describing rather odd, psychologically disturbed people but is less adroit over romantic relationships between men and women.
