This is the latest entry in Charles Todd's excellent historical series set in Britain shortly after WWI and the style, plot and period detail are all first-rate as expected. As Inspector Rutledge of Scotland Yard investigates the mysterious disappearance (and equally mysterious) return of a wealthy man in one town, he is handed what seems to be a completely unrelated case of a war widow's murder in a small country village. As Rutledge delves deeper into the two cases, he is sure they are connected - but how? Woven through the mystery are underlying themes of sadness, sacrifice and loss caused by the war and how it affects everyone, including Rutledge who is still suffering from his own battlefield experiences. A moody and evocative tale - defnitely a must-read for historical mystery fans.
