Can somebody enlighten me? I'm pretty sure there is a Ruth Rendell TV adaption that starts with Wexford meeting a couple in the South of France (or somewhere else in the Mediterranean) and then the action moves to Kingsmarkham. It includes the husband forcing his wide to record a message. However I'm sure I've read all the Wexford novels and this doesn't correspond with any of them?

Maybe it's been adapted so much as to be unrecognisable, Martin.  Like the Agatha Christies with Julia McKenzie.  I saw them described as having different plots, different characters, and different endings!

Your hunt reminds me of me trying to find a Hardy poem which I remember well.  It was about a man leaving in rain to meet his loved one and being happy; on the way home the sun is shining, but he is very sad as she has died.  I remember it well, but although I have an edition of all Hardy's poems, and I have looked on the internet and asked here, I haven't been able to find it.

A quick google reveals that there is a Wexford mystery "Put On By Cunning" which starts in Kingsmarkham and ends in the South of France. Is it possible the TV adaptation rearranged the chronology, starting just before the ending, then going back?
