I thought this book was confusing, it did have a good explanation of what really happened at the end.
A wealthy man is killed and at first it is ruled an accident but the inspector is sure it was murder, especially after they find that a long lost daughter had just turned up. A good plot but it was slow moving.

An early Inspector Wexford, and just as worthy of reading as Rendell's later work. Her body of work comes with as many surprises as Agatha Christie's, and with just as much delightful English culture.

Ruth Rendell is an amazing British author with a wonderful talent for mystery writing. Put On By Cunning is in the Inspector Wexford series of books and is as good as it gets. It is a maddeningly complex murder story where you really need to focus and keep your wits about you. The clues are all there for the reader to see - nothing is hidden. Although to come up with what really happened will take some cunning - and don't be put on!

A good old fashioned murder mystery. I don't particularly like the characters of. inspector Wexford or his side kick Burden but the twists and turns in the plot made this a bearable read.

Interesting to read as I'd never read any Ruth Rendell before. I enjoyed both books but have no strong recollection of the plot lines.

"Put on by cunning" is very good. Agatha Christie good, and similar in structure and style.
