“Full of suspense, surprises, and sympathetic characters.”
Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel

“No mystery series I can think of captures the sadness and loss that swept over England after World War I with the heartbreaking force of Charles Todd’s books about Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge.”
Chicago Tribune

The remarkable Charles Todd has created one of the most unforgettable characters in mystery and crime fiction: Inspector Ian Rutledge, shell-shocked veteran of “the Great War.” A False Mirror is one of Todd’s most powerful novels, plunging his tormented protagonist into the center of a brutal crime that painfully echoes events in Rutledge’s own past. Poignant, evocative, and continually surprising, A False Mirror is further proof that Charles Todd is well deserving of the critical acclaim the Rutledge novels have earned; a New York Times bestselling author who belongs among the acknowledged masters of the genre, including P. D. James, Elizabeth George, Ruth Rendell, and Jacqueline Winspear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely a winning series Another winner - I really didn't see the ending coming. An interesting take on small towns and gossip. Hamish continues to be Insp. Rutledge's conscience and warning radar while Chief Supt. Bowles continues to be a huge thorn in his side.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This is a very interesting series. The idea of a shell shocked detective is an very effective device. The period between the wars a time of huge change and a constant feeling of chances lost by a whole generation. This is reflected in the series. The narrative is full of information about the time but it does not get in the way of the detection. The whole series rings true. I find it interesting to read about detection methods without "whizz-bang" gadgetry. So totally different from modern crime fiction
