Scotland Yard detective Ian Rutledge returns to solve his most exciting and shocking case yet in this latest entry in the bestselling series hailed as "outstanding" by theNew York Times Book Review

A breathtaking blend of psychological complexity, haunting atmosphere, compelling twists, and impressive detail, the novels in the Ian Rutledge mystery series have garnered their author widespread acclaim and numerous honors and awards. At the heart of the series is the compelling Scotland Yard detective inspector Ian Rutledge, a veteran of the Great War who understands all too well the darkness that lies within men''s souls.

Now three men have been murdered in a Sussex village, and Scotland Yard has been called in. It''s a baffling case. The victims are soldiers who survived the horrors of World War I only to meet a ghastly end in the quiet English countryside two years later. Each had been garroted, with small ID discs left in their mouths.

But even Scotland Yard''s presence doesn''t deter this vicious and clever killer. Shortly after Inspector Ian Rutledge arrives, a fourth soldier is found dead. With few clues to go on and the pressure building, Rutledge must gamble everything—his job, his reputation, and even his life—to find answers.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful police procedural I've read a few books written by Charles Todd and they are all excellent. This is the first book I've read featuring Inspector Ian Rutledge and it was an excellent read. The writing is first-rate and the plot keeps you intrigued to the end. Even though the story takes place after the First World I it reads like it takes place today.
