A New Lease of Death is a novel by British writer Ruth Rendell, first published in 1967. It is the second entry in her popular Inspector Wexford series. The novel was titled Sins of the Fathers in the USA.
Chief Inspector Wexford had every reason to remember the Painter case - it was the first murder he'd ever handled on his own. There had been no doubts about the case, until now. Someone wants the case reopened, and they want Wexford proved wrong.
