“Charles Todd has penned another mystery masterpiece! Ian Rutledge is determined to find the killer who is garroting soldiers from Eastfield Company who survived the Great War. With the voice of Hamish, a dead soldier, constantly in his head, Inspector Rutledge wades through the red herrings and mistaken directions of the villagers. Along the way, we are reminded of the horrors and lasting effects of war while rooting for Ian to find love and happiness despite his fragile mental state.”
— Kathy Wales, Martha's Bookstore, Balboa Island, CA


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.

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 to find answers his job, his reputation, and even his life.
