It's always good to find a new author that you love! Author Charles Todd, however, is actually a mother-son team. This book is a mystery but also historical fiction. The main character is Inspector Ian Rutledge and the time frame is right after WW I. Rutledge brings his experiences in the trenches to his work for Scotland Yard, and there's plenty of effort needed to solve the mystery in this book. I loved the setting, the mystery-solving-without-modern-forensic-capabilities, the relationships between men and women in 1918. There are plenty of Inspector Rutledge mysteries and I think I'll try another one. A word of caution: the Bess Crawford mysteries by the same author don't fare as well and I recommend skipping them. Highly recommended without reservation.
