After two London men end their business partnership, one of them is savagely murdered in a medieval tithe barn on his estate in Somerset. Investigating the killing, Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge discovers that the victim was universally despised in Cambury--even the victim's wife and the town's police inspector are suspect. And yet in London circles, the man was highly regarded. What triggered his death? Rutledge doggedly follows a well-concealed trail that finally leads him to the one person who knows the whole truth. But it's too late to stop a spreading evil and a vicious settling of scores. As the seasoned inspector comes to understand the larger picture, he realizes he may not be able to prove what he suspects. In spite of his skill, this may be the only case in which Rutledge fails to get his man.

great crime story

  • Book Rating: 5/5

Another great detective story by Charles Todd about my favorite british policeman. Ian Rutledge is determined to solve a strange crime as always with absolutely no help from the local police or his vile superintendent. His tormented mind does not hinder his sharp wit and intellect and his bulldog determination to find out who is behind the diabolic scheme. Outstanding and not dated at all even though it is set in the 1920s. I want to listen to more of these books. Great detective, great villains.
