Mailbox Monday: Inspector Wexford by the Omnibus-load

Three books came across the pond and into my house last week. What books came into your house?

I started reading Ruth Rendell's Inspector Wexford series, but I've only read the first two. I never seem to find used copies at my usual haunts and my library doesn't have the audiobooks, at least of the earlier books in the series.

So I decided to fill in the earlier books with used copies of omnibus editions. They are a little odd, as you can see. The first omnibus includes books 2, 4, 3, and 11, in that order. Then the second and third omnibus editions fill in, although books 5 and 6 are switched in order.

Any other Rendell or Inspector Wexford fans out there?

Ruth Rendell Omnibus: Four Novels in One Volume - New Lease of Death (2), Best Man to Die (4), Wolf to the Slaughter (3), Put on by Cunning (11)

The Second Wexford Omnibus by Ruth Rendell - No More Dying Then (6), A Guilty Thing Surprised (5), Murder Being Once Done (7)

The Third Wexford Omnibus by Ruth Rendell - Some Lie and Some Die (8), Shake Hands Forever (9), A Sleeping Life (10)

Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday, a weekly "show & tell" blog event where participants share the books they acquired the week before. Visit the Mailbox Monday website to find links to all the participants' posts and read more about Books that Caught our Eye.

  1. I read From Doon With Death a number of years ago. It can be fun to read/listen to some of these classic mysteries. Hope you enjoy them. Happy Reading!
