A LONELY DEATH
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Historical
Todd’s attention to period detail, plotting and character exploration are at the forefront of the 13th Ian Rutledge mystery. 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.
Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge is attending a friend’s funeral when he is summoned to take over a baffling case. Three war veterans, each garroted, have been found dead in a small town. Rutledge must battle obstructive townspeople and plenty of red herrings to solve the case — all while his own inner demons threaten to finally overwhelm him. (MORROW, Jan., 352 pp., $24.99)
