Product description

Review

"Tricky plotting and rich atmospherics distinguish bestseller Todd's 16th novel featuring Scotland Yard's Insp. Ian Rutledge...Todd (the pen name of a mother-son writing team) has rarely been better." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) on HUNTING SHADOWS "Another well-written, well-plotted entry in this always engaging mystery series. -- Booklist on HUNTING SHADOWS "Another winner...Strong atmosphere and a complicated mystery make this book one that readers won't be able to put down." -- Romantic Times 4 1/2 stars on HUNTING SHADOWS "As always, the North Carolina-based mother and son who write under the pseudonym Charles Todd do a beautiful job with the period detail, making these books a nostalgic outing to England between the world wars." -- Raleigh News & Observer "Readers who stick with the chase, though, should be enthralled, as Rutledge sorts through a fascinating portrait gallery of witnesses and suspects, most of whom aren't telling him the whole truth." -- Wilmington News Journal "Of all the places where Inspector Ian Rutledge's Scotland Yard assignments have taken him, the desolate Fen country must surely be the eeriest. [This is an] excellent historical series." -- New York Times Book Review on HUNTING SHADOWS "Elusive clues, suspense and excellent writing make for reading pleasure." -- Oklahoma City Oklahoman on HUNTING SHADOWS --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Inside Flap

In the latest mystery from New York Times bestselling author Charles Todd, Inspector Ian Rutledge is summoned to the quiet, isolated Fen country to solve a series of seemingly unconnected murders before the killer strikes again

August 1920. A society wedding at Ely Cathedral in Cambridgeshire becomes a crime scene when a guest is shot just as the bride arrives. Two weeks later, after a fruitless search for clues, the local police are forced to call in Scotland Yard. But not before there is another shooting in a village close by. This second murder has a witness; the only problem is that her description of the killer is so horrific it's unbelievable. Badgered by the police, she quickly recants her story.

Despite his experience, Inspector Ian Rutledge can find no connection between the two deaths. One victim was an Army officer, the other a solicitor standing for Parliament; their paths have never crossed. What links these two murders? Is it something from the past? Or is it only in the mind of a clever killer?

Then the case reminds Rutledge of a legendary assassin whispered about during the war. His own dark memories come back to haunt him as he hunts for the missing connection--and yet, when he finds it, it isn't as simple as he'd expected. He must put his trust in the devil in order to find the elusive and shocking answer.
