Ruth Rendell

Picture of Ruth Rendell

Ruth Rendell was born on February 17, 1930 and died on May 2, 2015. Ruth Rendell was one of the most iconic figures in crime writing. She was prolific, suspenseful and enchanting. Her characters always transended the usuality of crime novels. While Inspector Wexford was not a young whippersnapper, he was not overburdoned with his own experience. He could spot a blagard a mile off, yet he could see the good in people. In the Inspector Wexford novels, Ruth Rendell introduced psychology into the stories. This was a theme she was to develop further in her 'Barbara Vine' thrillers. Ruth Rendell has written over 50 novels and 5 books of short stories. Kissing the Gunners Daughter and Not in the Flesh are Inspector Wexford novels
