*Starred Review* Fans of psychological whodunits will welcome the arrival of Todd's tenth mystery featuring Scotland Yard inspector Ian Rutledge. A veteran of World War I, Inspector Rutledge is haunted by the spirit of Hamish MacLeod, a Scottish deserter he executed on the French front. (Hamish's voice rings so clearly in Rutledge's ears that the policeman often finds himself responding aloud.) When an unidentified corpse, clad in a gas mask and cloak, is found among the ruins of Fountains Abbey, Rutledge is called in to investigate. Various leads take him to the schoolmaster of a neighboring town and to a group of cottages clustered below the legendary White Horse of Uffington, a nearly 400-foot figure carved into the upper slopes of Uffington Castle. Rutledge questions area constables, suspicious-looking neighbors, and lorry drivers at the local pub, as thoughts of battles past continue to plague his days. (In a memorable scene, a seemingly innocuous game of darts conjures up harrowing images of fellow soldiers long dead.) The mother-and-son team writing as Todd continues to render a refreshingly original historical series that combines Agatha Christie's classical detection with P. D. James' psychological acuity.

When Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge is sent to a small village to look for a missing man, he has no idea that the case will become so complicated or that the people encountered will be so secretive. At the same time, an unidentified body is found in the ruins of a Yorkshire abbey, and the detective in charge of the case wants to pin the murder on the man who married his former fiance. In his ninth outing (after A False Mirror ), Rutledge uses all of his investigative prowess to piece together painstakingly what happened and how the two cases are connected. Award winner Todd, the pseudonym for a mother-and-son writing team, is brilliant at creating atmosphere and unforgettable characters. Fans of historicals by Rennie Airth and Anne Perry will snap this up. For all mystery collections.

PW Reviews 2007 October #2

The exemplary 10th Inspector Ian Rutledge historical whodunit (after A False Mirror ) offers tight plotting and rich characterization amid understated but convincing evocations of post–WWI England. Haunted by memories of battle, unable to find a safe haven after his discharge from a psychiatric hospital and the abrupt departure of his fiance, shell-shocked veteran Rutledge has returned to his prewar life as a Scotland Yard inspector. This time out, the War Office wants him to locate a mysterious person of interest, connected with (and perhaps the same as) an unidentified corpse found at a Yorkshire abbey. Rutledge toils diligently to uncover personal secrets and shames that may have motivated someone to kill, and their connection to a long-ago romance between the suspected killer's wife and the local inspector investigating the case. The mother and son writing as Charles Todd show no evidence of running out of ideas for murder mysteries that illuminate new aspects of their compelling protagonist and the horrors of the Great War. (Dec.)
