Read in May, 2012

When 3 men in the same village in Sussex are garrotted and left with old army tags in their mouths of soldiers in WW1, but there are no witnesses and no weapons, Inspector Rutledge is called in to investigate. Still suffering from PTSD himself and having received news that his best friend had just killed himself, Rutledge isn't long in Sussex before another man is killed in the same fashion, with a similar item left in his mouth too.

What could the motive possibly be for killing these men, and can he find the murderer before he kills again?

Together with the spirit of Hamish, a soldier he feels responsible for having died in the war, Rutledge tenaciously pieces together whatever clues he can uncover, even when it's clear someone is trying to remove him from the case altogether.
