The introspective hero of Wings of Fire and A Test of Wills (Edgar Award nominee) returns in Search the Dark, a provocative new mystery by Charles Todd. Inspector Ian Rutledge, haunted by memories of World War I and the harrowing presence of Hamish, a dead soldier, is "a superb characterization of a man whose wounds have made him a stranger in his own land." (The New York Times Book Review)

A dead woman and two missing children bring Inspector Rutledge to the lovely Dorset town of Singleton Magna, where the truth lies buried with the dead. A tormented veteran whose family died in an enemy bombing is the chief suspect. Dubious, Rutledge presses on to find the real killer. And when another body is found in the rich Dorset earth, his quest reaches into the secret lives of villagers and Londoners whose privileged positions and private passions give them every reason to thwart him. Someone is protecting a murderer. And two children are out there, somewhere, in the dark....

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.
