Short Take: Hunting Shadows – Charles Todd

I thought I’d give this series a little shout out because the series always gets starred advance reviews—and this time is no exception. According to PW below, the books just get better. And the fan base is growing with the books now landing on the NYT bestseller list.

Tricky plotting and rich atmospherics distinguish bestseller Todd’s 16th novel featuring Scotland Yard’s Insp. Ian Rutledge. In September 1920, Rutledge has a real baffler on his hands: a sniper has just killed two seemingly unrelated men in the Fen country of East Anglia….The initial inquiries yielded little and result in the locals calling in the Yard, but apart from a woman who claims she saw a monster just as Swift was shot, there isn’t much for Rutledge to go on. Todd (the pen name of a mother-son writing team) has rarely been better.”

“Another well-written, well-plotted entry in this always engaging mystery series.
— Booklist

“Another winner…Strong atmosphere and a complicated mystery make this book one that readers won’t be able to put down.”
— Romantic Times (4 1/2 stars)
