Overview

Search the Dark (Inspector Ian Rutledge Series #3) by Charles Todd

The introspective hero of Wings of Fire and A Test of Wills (Edgar Award nominee) returns in Search the Dark, a provocative new mystery by Charles Todd. Inspector Ian Rutledge, haunted by memories of World War I and the harrowing presence of Hamish, a dead soldier, is "a superb characterization of a man whose wounds have made him a stranger in his own land." (The New York Times Book Review)

A dead woman and two missing children bring Inspector Rutledge to the lovely Dorset town of Singleton Magna, where the truth lies buried with the dead. A tormented veteran whose family died in an enemy bombing is the chief suspect. Dubious, Rutledge presses on to find the real killer. And when another body is found in the rich Dorset earth, his quest reaches into the secret lives of villagers and Londoners whose privileged positions and private passions give them every reason to thwart him. Someone is protecting a murderer. And two children are out there, somewhere, in the dark....

I discovered Charles Todd last year after searching for innovative writers in the mystery genre on this web page and what I discovered is by far one of the most interesting and challenging mysteries of the new age. I love the details about WWI and the complexities of the ghost Hamish in the inspectors head. These are mysteries which invoke comparisons to Henry James and even the great Sigmund Freud. Todd has done for mysteries what Delillo has done for modern fiction, that is to say that it is beautiful, complex and intelligent. In short a fascinating read.

Discovered Charles Todd (well and his Mom who co-writes with him) and read the entire Bess Armstrong series - Clever - interesting - enjoyable. Started reading the Ian Rutledge series - and even though it has dark moments - the characters are good - the plots are intriguing - my only complaint is - he ((they) are repetivtive too much of the writing. Describing the same feelings of the same person multiple times - telling the history of something the same. You get past it - but sometimes it is annoying. Will continue to read the series - hopefully it will get better from the standpoint of readability.

Flowed a lot better than 1 & 2. My Scottish is improving with Hammish! Still, the conversations weigh heavily. Not a simple read for busy places where you can't concentrate.

I have enjoyed all of the Inspector Rutledge Series books that I have read so far. I plan on reading all of them.

Rutledge is a very complex detective with a very complex case. You don't know who, what, or why until the last few pages. I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

This is an interesting story. It's winding through the minds of war survivors and it reveals their fears.

Good read. Todd makes you work to figure out who did it. Nice Scottish color and some humor to balance dark crimes.
