In the peaceful garden of a London house, a manhole cover has just been raised.

None carry identification. The men have been there for twelve years; the woman for only two.
For Inspector Wexford, this is a case worth coming out of retirement for.
Soon he is trying to establish who the victims in the vault are - and most importantly who put them there.
But a shocking development in his private life means that his search for the truth is about to become a lot more complicated ...

No Man's Nightingale: the eagerly anticipated twenty-fourth title in Ruth Rendell's bestselling Detective Chief Inspector Wexford series.
Sarah Hussain was not popular with many people in the community of Kingsmarkham. She was born of mixed parentage - a white Irishwoman and an immigrant Indian Hindu. She was also the Reverend of St Peter's Church.
But it comes as a profound shock to everyone when she is found strangled in the Vicarage.
A garrulous cleaner, Maxine, also shared by the Wexfords, discovers the body.
In his comparatively recent retirement, the former Detective Chief Inspector is devoting much time to reading, and is deep into Edward Gibbon's The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. He has little patience with Maxine's prattle.
But when his old friend Mike Burden asks if he might like to assist on this case as Crime Solutions Adviser (unpaid), Wexford is obliged to pay more precise attention to all available information.
The old instincts have not been blunted by a life where he and Dora divide their time between London and Kingsmarkham. Wexford retains a relish for solving puzzles and a curiosity about people which is invaluable in detective work.
For all his experience and sophistication, Burden tends to jump to conclusions.
But he is wise enough to listen to the man whose office he inherited, and whose experience makes him a most formidable ally.

Instantly engaging, maddeningly addictive, "The Fallen Curtain" testifies to the enduring talents of a master of the genre.
