The Sins of the Fathers PDF Download eBook (Inspector Wexford #2)English writer Ruth Rendell (Barbara Vine) continued her Inspector Wexford series, a brilliant crime/detective thriller series, with the second novel The Sins of the Fathers (U.S. version title). It was originally published in 1967 in U.K. with the title A New Lease of Death. This book once again proved Rendell’s excellence as an author, where she presented insightful views of human mind with solid plots and well-built characters.
In this story, Inspector Wexford’s name and credibility are on stake. Fifteen years ago he had his first homicide case. An old lady was being viciously beaten to death with an axe at her house. Wexford worked on the case and based on the clues he found, the murder was done by Harry Painter, the old woman’s odd job man. Wexford captured Painter and the later was finally executed for his crime.
Far all those years, Wexford and everybody else have been sure that they got the right man. However, there is someone who just cannot accept it. Henry Archery is the father of a man who is engaged to Painter’s daughter and he wants to reopen the case. He believes and would really like to prove that Wexford caught—hence made they executed—the wrong man. In his effort, Archery conducts interrogations with the witnesses of the case and by doing so, he triggers something even more shocking.
