- Customer Reviews:
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"

Todd continues to draw us into Rutledge's mind. I wish the reader was given vital information more early in the book, so we have a fair chance at guessing. However, I'm already looking forward to the next book.
The plots are easy to follow ,but I never guess who the murderer is.If you like a good mystery with no violence, or cruelty , it is great to curl up with Ian Rutledge. Long may they continue!
Lots of driving in his beloved car in the usual remote villages
Always a good read
