Product Description:

Scotland Yard detective Ian Rutledge returns to solve his most exciting and shocking case yet in....

Review:

“Masterly.” (New York Times Book Review on A Lonely Death)

“Todd once and for all establishes the shell-shocked Rutledge as the genre’s most complex and fascinating detective.” (Entertainment Weekly, on A LONELY DEATH (Grade: A-))

“[The authors’] subtle prose and profound empathy for all their characters enhance a suspenseful and twisty plot.” (Publishers Weekly on A Lonely Death)

“Another engaging entry in a fine series.” (Booklist on A Lonely Death)

“Todd’s intriguing revenge tale will keep the reader turning the pages, but the main draw remains Rutledge, the relentless inspector haunted by the voice of a Scotsman he executed on the battlefield for disobeying an order. Highly recommended for all aficionados of British postwar historical mysteries.” (Library Journal on A Lonely Death)

“Eloquently blasts war for the obscenity it is.” (Kirkus Reviews on A Lonely Death)

“Todd’s attention to period detail, plotting and character exploration are at the forefront of the 13th Ian Rutledge Mystery….Todd and his hero are in fine form from start to finish.” (Romantic Times on A Lonely Death (4 ½ stars; Top Pick))

“A strong entry in a strong series.” (Charlotte Observer on A Lonely Death)

“Suspense filled.” (Oklahoman on A Lonely Death)

“Todd invests this absorbing fiction with creative storytelling (including intriguing subplots), memorable characters and graceful, seemingly effortless prose….This is fiction that moves, entertains, and as always, underscores life’s victories over death.” (Richmond Times-Dispatch on A Lonely Death)

“Compelling…a provocative thriller.” (Iron Mountain Daily News on A Lonely Death)

“Fully realized characters, well-researched settings, and exquisite writing combine with a surprising and chilling solution to mark this 13th outing as a standout in Todd’s deservedly award-winning series.” (Mystery Scene on A Lonely Death)
