Product description


A superb entry in a superb series: an exquisite sense of time and place, a satisfying mystery with a breathless conclusion, and above all the complex, haunted, charismatic Inspector Ian Rutledge himself-truly one of crime fiction's most absorbing characters.

-- "Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author"

Charles Todd pulls off the voice-in-the-head device exquisitely. Moreover, the series is populated with highly nuanced characters, and the historical research is spot on. In Racing the Devil, the pacing is compelling.

-- "Newark Star Ledger"

Great pacing and a compelling story make this a delight for fans of history and mystery alike.

-- "BookPage"

Narrator Simon Prebble slips comfortably into Inspector Ian Rutledge's persona in the nineteenth installment in the series...The close-knit members of the small town in South Downs are portrayed in a variety of soft-toned accents, with each character subtly differentiated. Prebble torques up the tension as Rutledge and Hamish follow elusive clues, determined to solve this convoluted mystery.

-- "AudioFile"

Todd maintains a high degree of tension throughout and populates the story with vivid characters bearing the external and internal scars of war.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

Todd writes a rich mystery, but in investigating the murder Rutledge also probes the psychic wounds of the village and tries to minister to the collective survivor guilt of the living.

-- "New York Times Book Review"

Todd's rich storytelling shines in Racing the Devil, showing an England forever changed by The Great War, yet determined to survive.

-- "South Florida Sun Sentinel"
