After two London men end their business partnership, one of them is savagely murdered in a medieval tithe barn on his estate in Somerset. Investigating the killing, Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge discovers that the victim was universally despised in Cambury—even the victim's wife and the town's police inspector are suspect. And yet in London circles, the man was highly regarded. What triggered his death? Rutledge doggedly follows a well-concealed trail that finally leads him to the one person who knows the whole truth. But it's too late to stop a spreading evil and a vicious settling of scores. As the seasoned inspector comes to understand the larger picture, he realizes he may not be able to prove what he suspects. In spite of his skill, this may be the only case in which Rutledge fails to get his man.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Here the mother and son who write under the name Charles Todd get it all right: a shocking crime in a bucolic setting; secretive characters who act from complex motives; a confounding puzzle elegantly presented and put before a detective with an intuitive understanding of the dark side of human nature.” New York Times
“A sharp look at a country recovering from the devastation of war. Although it is set in the early 20th century, Todd’s novels are timeless.” South Florida Sun Sentinal
“The plot is as complicated as any that Agatha Christie contrived, with characters as dark and complex as any of P. D. James’…Just the ticket.” Wilmington Star News 
“Todd writes with atmospheric charm and a dark psychological edge that makes Rutledge one of crime writing’s most compelling recurring characters…The success of the series hinges on both clever plotting and the nuance with which the authors continue to develop their character.” Bookmarks Magazine
“Seamlessly combines a fair-play whodunit with a nuanced look into the heart of darkness in the human soul.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Character-driven novel…another smoothly constructed, literary endeavor.” Booklist
“Intricate plotting, detailed characterizations, and red herrings, this is a compelling addition to the popular Ian Rutledge series.”  Library Journal
“A wonderfully plotted mystery will keep you engrossed and guessing right up to the end…This terrific read will please longtime fans and those new to the series.”  RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)
