Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Seamless in its storytelling and enthralling in its plotting.”
—Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel

“Dark and remarkable….Once [Todd] grabs you, theres no putting the novel down.”
—Detroit Free Press

The Winston-Salem Journal declares that, “like P. D. James and Ruth Rendell, Charles Todd writes novels that transcend genre.” A Long Shadow proves that statement true beyond the shadow of a doubt. Once again featuring Todds extraordinary protagonist, Scotland Yard investigator and shell-shocked World War One veteran, Inspector Ian Rutledge, A Long Shadow immerses readers in the sights and sounds of post-war Great Britain, as the damaged policeman pursues answers to a constables slaying and the three-year-old mystery of a young girls disappearance in a tiny Northamptonshire village. Read Todds A Long Shadow and see why the Washington Post calls the Rutledge crime novels, “one of the best historical series being written today.”

Synopsis:

Scotland Yards Inspector Ian Rutledge brought the Great War home with him, and its horrors haunt him still. On New Years Eve 1919, he finds a brass cartridge casing, similar to countless others hed seen on the battlefield, on the steps of a friends house. Soon there are more, purposely placed where he is sure to discover them.

Unexpectedly drawn away from London to a small Northamptonshire village, he investigates the strange case of a local constable shot with a bow and arrow in an allegedly spirit-infested wood. Here among the taciturn townsfolk, embroiled in a three-year-old mystery of a vanished young girl, Rutledge hopes to keep his own ghosts at bay.

But his stalker has followed him. And now the emotionally shattered policeman walking the razors edge of sanity must somehow keep his balance long enough to discover who is tracking him...and why.
