Reviews

"Each of Charles Todd's engrossing novels about Scotland Yard Insp. Ian Rutledge, set post-World War I, puts a spotlight on often forgotten details about the Great War. It's this minutia that illustrate the war's effect on the characters and the region . . . Charles Todd are experts at subtly drawing parallels to 21st century concerns. The Great War ended more than a century ago but Ian's personal issues and his investigations are relevant today." -- Florida Sun Sentinel

"A Fatal Lie provides an excellent book with which to walk into Rutledge's pursuit of crime and determination to make things right . . . Those who value similar portrayals of place as character--as in Louise Penny's Three Pines, for instance--will treasure A Fatal Lie and its Welsh backdrop. As a police procedural, also, the book's persistent untangling of motive, means, and opportunity provides an instant classic for this mystery genre, along with an intriguing exploration of the heart's effects on the mind." -- New York Journal of Books

"Fans of the series will want Todd's latest historical mystery." -- Library Journal

"[A] very captivating and page-turning mystery." -- Fresh Fiction

"This is the type of classic-style mystery that we have grown to love from Charles Todd, and it never fails to deliver." -- BookReporter.com

"You're going to love Todd." -- Stephen King

"The melancholy tone that distinguishes the Rutledge series is a reminder that war never ends for the families and friends of lost loved ones. It just retreats into the shadows." -- New York Times Book Review

"This is a series, written by a mother-and-son team under the Charles Todd pseudonym, that shows no signs of slowing down. As always, this one combines crisp plotting with stylish prose. Ideal for historical-mystery devotees." -- Booklist on A Divided Loyalty
