A Long Shadow: An Inspector Ian Rutledge Mystery

by Charles Todd

HarperCollins Publishers Ltd. | October 25, 2011 | Trade Paperback

A Long Shadow: An Inspector Ian Rutledge Mystery is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.

Scotland Yard’s Inspector Ian Rutledge brought the Great War home with him, and its horrors haunt him still. On New Year’s Eve 1919, he finds a brass cartridge casing, similar to countless others he’d seen on the battlefield, on the steps of a friend’s house. Soon there are more, purposely placed where he is sure to discover them.

Unexpectedly drawn away from London to a small Northamptonshire village, he investigates the strange case of a local constable shot with a bow and arrow in an allegedly spirit-infested wood. Here among the taciturn townsfolk, embroiled in a three-year-old mystery of a vanished young girl, Rutledge hopes to keep his own ghosts at bay.

But his stalker has followed him. And now the emotionally shattered policeman walking the razor’s edge of sanity must somehow keep his balance long enough to discover who is tracking him...and why.

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!
