The Charles Todd team is an old pro at the police procedural, and the pair continues to add layers to the damaged Ian Rutledge, a character whose PTSD keeps these books especially relevant and compelling. The series has been compared favorably to the Golden Age crime fiction of Margery Allingham and Ngaio Marsh, among others, as well as Pat Barker's Regeneration trilogy, perhaps the finest contemporary fiction to center on World War I and its consequences. The Rutledge series shows no signs of becoming stale. New readers can jump right in, while those already a dozen books deep in RutledgeÕs struggle for redemption and justice will find new aspects of the novels to keep them reading. This is an excerpt from a review published in Bookmarks magazine.
