From Our Editors

A classic "village mystery," Search The Dark by Charles Todd features the further adventures of Ian Rutledge. Set in post-Second World War England, a brain-damaged veteran returns to his village to be told that his wife and children were killed during a blitz. The veteran insists he keeps spotting members of his family, but nobody believes him. However, after a mysterious body is found on a train platform, Inspector Rutledge is moved to take on the case. Todd was nominated for an Edgar Award for his first book A Test Of Wills.
