review Simisola 100 The sixteenth book to feature the classic crime solving detective Chief Inspector WexfordWhen a young black woman goes missing in Kingsmarkham Wexford must respond to a test not only of his powers of deduction but of his basic beliefs and prejudicesOnly eighteen. Simisola is the 16th book in author Ruth Rendell s Inspector Reginald Wexford series published in 1994 This one is eual parts introspection on the part of Wexford and criminal investigation into crimes involving Black victimsSome others who have reviewed this story were disappointed with the social commentary that the author made central to the plot It is a diversion from her usual style in this series but it made Wexford all the human to show not only his own prejudices but also his willingness and ability to make changes in his thinking and actions once he comes to that realizationFirst a young woman goes missing from her parents home as the search for her continues the body of another young woman is found having been beaten to death Both women are Black living in a small community that has fewer than 20 Black individuals living there It is after the discovery of the body that Wexford experiences some of his most egregious actions actions that bring him self discovery regret and enlightenment

review Simisola 100 Black people live in Kingsmarkham One of them is Wexford's new doctor Raymond Akande When the doctor's daughter Melanie goes missing the Chief Inspector takes than just a professional interest in the caseMelanie just down from university but unable to find a job. Like I mentioned before that book on women crime writers made me want to read crime and so I did Simisola was one of the books analysed and it sounded really interesting so I picked it up It s an Inspector Wexford mystery to be specific it s a police procedural but I think it can be read as a standalone As for the plot that s a bit harder to describe but here goesThe daughter of Inspector Wexford s GP Melanie Akande has gone missing As Wexford investigates the body of Annette Bystock who was probably the last person to see her And then another body turns upThis is a police procedural with an intricate plot and an overarching theme Wexford is a decent man who is struggling in a world that has changed without him knowing The change being that England is no longer 99% whiteThis investigation leads him to recognise and confront his hidden prejudices while painting a bleak picture of England right now Life isn t easy for anyone and a lot of people clearly aren t coping well At times it felt like Ruth Rendell hammered in the England is racist message a bit too strongly and made it very obvious but for the most part she let the characters and the story indict themselves For example possible spoilers if you didn t read the blurb when the second body is found Inspector Wexford immediately assumed it was Melanie because the victim was black even going as far as to break the news to her parents When they realise it s not her their anger is heartbreaking and a huge moment of realisation of how unconsciously racist he is for WexfordThe only weak point of the book apart from veering dangerously close to preachy occasionally is that it a really really complicated Perhaps my brain isn t just working but despite reading most of the book in one sitting woohoo for free days with no plans when the murderer was revealed my first reaction was who Wexford does do a recap which I was grateful for but unlike most mysteries the reveal was confusing than de mystifyingIf you want a mystery that makes the problem of racism a part of the story you ll want to pick this book up It is a grim bleak read but it is a worthwhile one because we always need to be confronted with our hidden prejudicesThis review was first posted at Inside the mind of a Bibliophile

review Simisola 100 Disappeared somewhere between the Benefit Office and the bus stop Or at least no one saw her get on the bus when it cameWhen the body of a young black woman is discovered Wexford must overcome his underlying prejudices to allow his investigative skills to succeed. As always Rendell has written a superb mystery this one about Wexford trying to determine what has become of his doctor s daughter who has gone missing Rendell also takes on very elouently race racism and social class in this book Not much has changed apparently in the nearly 25 years since it was published
