A tormented veteran whose family died in an enemy bombing is the chief suspect. Dubious, Rutledge presses on to find the real killer.

Someone is protecting a murderer. And two children are out there, somewhere, in the dark....

'Search The Dark' not only provides a suspenseful mystery but also a masterful insight into a society damaged and broken by the fall-out from a terrible war. The intelligence, depth and detail in the writing make this book something more than just a thriller.
The personal nightmare enveloping Inspector Ian Rutledge continues. But as we get to know his character better his sufferings carry even more weight and context. There is a poignancy in his (unconscious) search for healing. And there is no place where the author does not maintain psychological accuracy and acuity.
