“Seamless in its storytelling and enthralling in its plotting.”
Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel

“Dark and remarkable….Once [Todd] grabs you, there’s no putting the novel down.”
Detroit Free Press

The Winston-Salem Journal declares that, “like P. D. James and Ruth Rendell, Charles Todd writes novels that transcend genre.” A Long Shadow proves that statement true beyond the shadow of a doubt. Once again featuring Todd’s extraordinary protagonist, Scotland Yard investigator and shell-shocked World War One veteran, Inspector Ian Rutledge, A Long Shadow immerses readers in the sights and sounds of post-war Great Britain, as the damaged policeman pursues answers to a constable’s slaying and the three-year-old mystery of a young girl’s disappearance in a tiny Northamptonshire village. Read Todd’s A Long Shadow and see why the Washington Post calls the Rutledge crime novels, “one of the best historical series being written today.”

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another excellent book in the Inspector Ian Rutledge series Despair - fear - gloom - memories - a sense of doom - a risk of insanity - isolation there are few if any feelings surrounding doubt and depression that are missed in this novel as Rutledge tries once again to solve a mystery that consumes a village and defies the local constabulary. Charles Todd has again created a suspenseful story line that all but comsumes the emotionally fragile veteran returned from the Front and but recently released from hospital - the tale consumes the reader and leaves one waiting for the next

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Addictive! Rutledge is so damned addictive. If the literary world offered up nothing more than Todd's inspector for the rest of my days.....I'd be satisfied!
