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 the Great War only to meet a ghastly end in the quiet English countryside two years later. Each had been garroted, with small ID disks 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[The] subtle prose and profound empathy for all [the] characters enhance a suspenseful and twisty plot.” Publishers Weekly
“While respectful of the resilient spirit of communities like Eastfield, Todd…doesn’t shrink from challenging the assumptions about class and economic privilege that once sustained their insular way of life. Once again, Rutledge comes to realize that war changes everything.” New York Times
“Another engaging entry in a fine series.” Booklist
“While series of this length often hit a stale point, Todd masterfully avoids this pitfall by continuing to find fresh ways of exploring WWI’s long-term effects on his main character. With a plot that neatly shifts gears from whodunit to can-he-be-caught, both Todd and his hero are in fine form from start to finish.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“Todd invests this absorbing fiction with creative storytelling (including intriguing subplots), memorable characters and graceful, seemingly effortless prose…This is fiction that moves, entertains, and as always, underscores life’s victories over death.” Richmond Times-Dispatch
“Todd once and for all establishes the shell-shocked Rutledge as the genre’s most complex and fascinating detective.” Entertainment Weekly
