Description - Harm Done by Ruth Rendell

Two young girls disappear, but return home unharmed some days later. Around the same time, a convicted paedophile is released back into the community. The residents of an estate in Kingsmarkham are up in arms, and even prepared to take the law into their own hands... Chief Inspector Wexford is not only concerned very personally with the effects of violence and prejudice, but is also involved with a new programme called Hurt-Watch, to help the victims of domestic violence. His daughter, Sylvia, the social worker and never his favourite, has come to work nearby in a refuge for battered women, called The Hide. Her marriage is in difficulties, although her husband has never raised a hand to her. They are merely incompatible. Other women in Kingsmarkham are not so lucky, and, after those early disappearances, two far more serious crimes are committed which will affect the lives and attitudes of police and public alike.
