Babes in the Wood, by Ruth Rendell
Excellent dark police procedural mystery by the always amazing Ruth Rendell. Set during epic floods in England, Cheif Inspector Wexford sets off to investigate the disappearance of a 13 year old girl, her 15 year old brother, and the 30 year old who was supposed to be housesitting/watching over them while their parents were on holiday. Brooding and atmospheric. Rendell is good.
