Description

A dangerous case with ties leading back to the battlefields of World War I dredges up dark memories for Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge in Hunting Shadows, a gripping and atmospheric historical mystery set in 1920s England, from acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Charles Todd.

A society wedding at Ely Cathedral in Cambridgeshire becomes a crime scene when a man is murdered. After another body is found, the baffled local constabulary turns to Scotland Yard. Though the second crime had a witness, her description of the killer is so strange its unbelievable.

Despite his experience, Inspector Ian Rutledge has few answers of his own. The victims are so different that there is no rhyme or reason to their deaths. Nothing logically seems to connect them—except the killer. As the investigation widens, a clear suspect emerges. But for Rutledge, the facts still don't add up, leaving him to question his own judgment.

In going over the details of the case, Rutledge is reminded of a dark episode he witnessed in the war. While the memory could lead him to the truth, it also raises a prickly dilemma. To stop a murderer, will the ethical detective choose to follow the letter—or the spirit—of the law?

        Starred review from December 2, 2013
        Tricky plotting and rich atmospherics (“the Fen country, where water had separated everyone and made foreigners of people ten miles distant”) distinguish bestseller Todd’s 16th novel featuring Scotland Yard’s Insp. Ian Rutledge (after 2013’s Proof of Guilt). In September 1920, Rutledge has a real baffler on his hands: a sniper has just killed two seemingly unrelated men in the Fen country of East Anglia. Captain Hutchinson was gunned down as he was about to enter a church for a wedding, and Tory candidate for Parliament Herbert Swift’s head was blown off as he began a stump speech. The initial inquiries yielded little and resulted in the locals calling in the Yard, but apart from a woman who claims she saw a monster just as Swift was shot, there isn’t much for Rutledge to go on. Todd (the pen name of a mother-son writing team) has rarely been better. Agent: Jane Chelius, Jane Chelius Literary Agency.
