Bookmarks Magazine's Reviews > A Long Shadow
by Charles Todd (Goodreads Author)
The real mystery for most critics is how the American mother-and-son team Caroline and Charles Todd, who write under the pseudonym Charles Todd, manage to penetrate so deeply into the postwar English psyche and setting. That insight is the key to the success of the Inspector Rutledge series. While the plots are plenty interesting, it is the deep shade hanging over all Todd's mysteries that sets them apart. A Long Shadow, the eighth in the series, is no exception, with its forays into the supernatural and the suspicions of small-town life. It proves another fine installment of a well-regarded series.
