    wonderful historical mystery
    I have read all the previous novels in the Ian Rutledge series and they have all been not only well-developed mysteries but also fascinating insights into the effects of war on the human character. This latest novel was no exception and I highly recommend it.

    While this novel, as all the others, can be enjoyed on its on merit, I found that starting with the first in the series is helpful.

    A Lonely Death
    I'm not usually a fan of mystery stories and requested this book because it is set in the period following WW1 in England. It was interesting to see how difficult it was to solve a case without modern investigative procedures-no DNA evidence,computers,or other diagnostic devices. The characters were engaging and faced many of the problems we face today such as social inequality, post traumatic stress disorder and bullying.
    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more Inspector Ian Rutledge mysteries.
