This is the first book I read in this series. A body of a woman bludgeoned to death is found in a house with a red door. And back in London a man with a mysterious illness goes missing and then suddenly appears. This man, his two brothers, and the wives of the two brothers seem to be hiding a secret while the other wife is sort of kept on the outside. Inspector Rutledge is drawn into and must solve both cases. The story takes place in 1920 after WWI in England. I am always amazed by the social system in English stories and Charles Todd does a good job of portraying that system.

Inspector Rutledge is sort of a bulldog in his approach to solving the crime. I think he could get on your nerves after a while.
