Shake Hands Forever, by Ruth Rendell, an Inspector Wexford mystery) narrated by Nigel Anthony, produced by BBC Audio, downloaded from audible.com.

Mr. Hathall met his mother at the train station. He indicated that his wife, Angela, was supposed to bring the car to pick them up, but Angela and the car never arrived. So mother and son walked from the station to the house. His mother kept chiding him the whole time, telling him he shouldn’t have married Angela and that he should have stayed with his first wife, Eileen. When they get home, upon his invitation, his mother went upstairs to wash up, and there she found Angela on top of her made bed, and she had been strangled. Inspector Wexford, coming on the scene, is immediately suspicious of the husband who isn’t showing appropriate emotions for just having suffered the death of his wife. Wexford tries for many months to find a way to bring Mr. Hathall to justice. He does finally figure out what happened, even though he cannot prove it. This book was a little too slow for me. My mind kept wandering.
