Speaker of Mandarin by Ruth Rendell. Chief Inspector Wexford is on a trip in china. Ruth Rendell's books are always a delight to read. Here, the pages fly past as Inspector Wexford holidays in China and inadvertently picks up clues for his next murder case. A long trip and a very uncomfortable trip with none of the conveniences of home.

I'm not poetical myself. In a way she was, though. Any man would have wanted to write a poem to her or about her. But with a faint feeling of disappointment he saw what she meant. the Hollywood profile, she was of the earth, earthy. So what can I do for you?''I don't know, Mrs Vinald, I'm a bit in the dark. You didn't travel on that train across Asia, did you?'She shook her head. We met up with the train party in a place called Kweilin. I first met my husband in the hotel there

The twelfth book to feature the classic crime-solving detective, Chief Inspector Wexford. Wherever Reggie Wexford goes, death and intrigue are close on his heels. Having just returned from a once-in-a-lifetime holiday in China, Wexford finds himself haunted by memories of the old woman with bound feet who mysteriously followed him from one city to the next and the man who tragically drowned.

Reviews about Speaker of Mandarin (7):
Bladecliff
I'm catching up on old Ruth Rendell books, now that she is no longer with us. This one is a bit different since she takes almost the entire first half of the book "setting the stage" but I do love her writing.
Yalone
Books in the Inspector Wexford series have provided many hours of enjoyment for me, but this book was an exception. There was a large cast of characters introduced in the early chapters, but they weren't fully developed. Hence, when one of those thinly drawn characters turns up dead and others in the group are accused, it doesn't much matter about the death or who did it.
Maman
Boring. Most of the book is a detailed tour of China. I got bored with it halfway through and gave it up.
Kanek
I enjoyed this book, but it didn't have me riveted like some of Ruth Rendell's other books. But it might be due to that I was only able to read this book in snippets. I absolutely loved some very funny descriptions of Inspector Wexford's observations.
Uleran
I liked the location change for Wexford on his trip to China. And continued when he got home. Complex plot and surprising twists.
I am a loyal fan of Wexford and Rendell, and enjoy a good mystery as this was.
Yndanol
great book, good service, arrived just as described
Sadaron above the Gods
I enjoyed this book because it was a murder mystery but also a travel log of wexford travels to China and the discretion s of China were very good
An amazing view of morality. One of the most cleverly-titled books ever. This is a study of good and evil spanning two continents. Wonderful!
