Three Inspector Wexford mysteries:
'Wolf To The Slaughter'
A woman vanishes. No body, no crime. Just an anonymous letter. Burden reckons it's an open and shut case, but Wexford has other ideas.
'Put On By Cunning'
Wexford's instinct leads him to unravel an apparent death by misadventure. Niggling doubts about the return of a dead flautist's daughter to claim an inheritance arouse Wexford's suspicions.
'The Speaker Of Mandarin'
After a trip to China, Wexford finds himself haunted by the image of a woman with bound feet, and surprised to be investigating the murder of one of his fellow tourists.
