Means of Evil and Other Stories. By: A good audio book to listen to It was good to listen to Inspector Wexford stories again. The crimes and twists are as good as any modern crime thriller. The voice of the narrator was easy to listen to. Overall 5 out of 5 stars. Ruth Rendel writes the best mysteries, as well as having a running detective series, around. Whenever I see an opportunity to get a copy of her few short stories, I snap it up. Means To An Evil is just that. So if you like that subject matter, I strongly suggest you give Rendel/Barbra Vine,(her other writing name,) a try. Thank you, Jean Mason5/5.

Means of Evil and Other Stories. By: Chief inspector Wexford and inspector Burden investigate poisonings, baby-swapping, theft, and forgery in 'Means of Evil', 'Old Wives Tales', 'Ginger and the Kingsmarkham Chalk Circle', 'Achilles Heel', and 'When the Wedding Was Over'. Five Inspector Wexford stories that show Rendell at her least distinctive—the full-length Wexfords and non-Wexford novels and stories are all superior—but Rendell never sinks below a certain, remarkably high, level. Best is the grittily monetary Old Wives' Tale: the murder of a year-old woman planning to enter a nursing home. (Prime suspect: her year-old son-in-law!) Three other.   However, Means of Evil shows she is not just a master of the long detective novel, but of the detective short story as well, for the five stories in Means of Evil are little gems. They span the lives of both Wexford and Burden, and range from a tale of poisoning, to a compelling tale about mothers and young children, to, my personal favourite 5/5(8).
