9780061672705: A Pale Horse: A Novel of Suspense (Inspector Ian Rutledge Mysteries)

The Great War never relinquished its hold on Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge, leaving him haunted and isolated, unable to forget. In the spring of 1920, he's dispatched to Berkshire to find a missing man whose war work is so secret even Rutledge cannot know its true nature. Meanwhile, miles away, an unidentified body has been discovered in the ruins of a Yorkshire abbey, clothed in a monk's robe and wearing a gas mask.

In the shadow of a great white horse cut into the chalk hillside—where cottages once built to house the sick and untouchable now shelter outcasts like himself—Rutledge must extract a terrible truth from those who hide from the past. For death is never quite finished with anyone, least of all the men who fought in the bloody trenches of France.

About the Author:

Charles Todd is the New York Times bestselling author of the Inspector Ian Rutledge mysteries, the Bess Crawford mysteries, and two stand-alone novels. A mother-and-son writing team, they live on the East Coast.

From AudioFile:

Simon Prebble, the voice of Charles Todd's mysteries, creates another winner with this moody tale of soured love in the Yorkshire dales. The year is 1920. Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge is called in to investigate a dead body found in a Yorkshire abbey. A second case of a vanished government scientist may or may not be linked. Rutledge wants the truth, but others are more interested in silence. As always, Rutledge is accompanied by his Scottish "ghost," Hamish. Prebble reads atmospherically without overdramatizing the action, and the wide range of characters is well drawn--Hamish's brogue; a simple man's slow precision; the broad, tight voice of a hostile Yorkshire policeman. This is literate, satisfying fun. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
