Eastfield, Sussex, on the Hastings Road -- July, 1920: They survived the War, the Great War, the War to End All Wars to make their way back to the quiet English countryside. Now, two years later, they are dead... garroted, an ID disk thrust into each mouth. Scotland Yard sends in Detective Inspector Ian Rutledge, himself a survivor of the Great War. But he has not survived without shadows. In this peacetime, war still echoes and something is tearing lives apart.
Charles Todd is the nom de guerre for a most original writing team- mother and son based in Delaware and North Carolina. Their creation, Detective Inspector Ian Rutledge, veteran and shell-shock survivor, here faces his thirteenth case.
The New York Times Book Review calls this series "outstanding". Worthy of review.
