This was an investigation which would call into question many of Wexford's assumptions about the way people behave, including his own family. . .

In The Babes in the Wood Ruth Rendell brings her keen psychological insight and rigorous moral sense to bear on Wexford's assumptions about the way people behave, including his own family, as he investigates the mysterious disappearance of two teenagers and their babysitter.

There hadn't been anything in living memory like the kind of rain that had caused the River Brede to burst its banks and flood the homes in the area. The Subaqua Task Force could find no trace of the missing teenagers and their babysitter...but their mother was still convinced that her children were dead.
