Scotland Yard detective Ian Rutledge is assigned one of the most baffling investigations of his career??a cold murder case with an unidentified victim and a cold trail with few clues to follow.

Chief Inspector Brian Leslie, a respected colleague of Ian Rutledge's, is sent to Avebury, a village set inside a great prehistoric stone circle not far from Stonehenge.

A young woman has been murdered next to a mysterious, hooded, figure-like stone, but no one recognizes her??or admits to it. And how did she get there? Despite a thorough investigation, it appears that her killer has simply vanished.

Rutledge, returning from the conclusion of a case involving another apparently unknown woman, is asked to take a second look at Leslie's inquiry, to see if he can identify this victim. But Rutledge is convinced Chief Superintendent Jameson only hopes to tarnish his earlier success once he also fails.

Where to begin? He too finds very little to go on in Avebury, slowly widening his search beyond the village??only to discover that unlikely??possibly even unreliable??clues are pointing him toward an impossible solution, one that will draw the wrath of the Yard down on him, and very likely see him dismissed if he pursues it. But what about the victim??what does he owe this tragic woman? Where must his… (mais)

Best of the recent books in the series. ( )

Another interesting story involving Ian Rutledge. His superior gives him cases that are unsolved (Ian believes he would like to find an excuse to fire him) but manages to solve the first one of the a murdered woman so he’s given another difficult case. As Ian starts investigating the murder of the unidentified woman, he starts a step-by-step process on how did she get to this stone circle, where did she come from, who was she meeting. As he builds a case and finally discovers who the woman was and wrestles with who the suspected murderer is, his voice in his head, Hamish, a dead soldier from WWI, helps him reason out the case. ( )

This was definitely my favorite in the Ian Rutledge series. The setting is primarily a dark, gloomy place with stone figures in a field and it's raining most of the time. However, I felt a lifting of Ian's own mood and confidence out of his shell-shocked state following WWI. He investigates the murder of an Armenian refugee found near the stones and traces it to a most unlikely killer. There are background information on several characters and many historical details that added to my enjoyment. ( )

This is the first book I've read in the Ian Rutledge series though I have read some of the Bess Crawford series. They are both excellent historical mystery series.
In this case, Ian is returned from WWI with a severe case of PTSD (he hears the voice of Hamish, a man he killed) and is working again for Scotland Yard. After a successful result for a woman's murder, he is sent to Avesbury to double-check the results of one of his colleagues who didn't solve a similar murder.
I love the historical details that are interposed throughout the book. The authors do a wonderful job of detailing the period and laying out the clues. There are some great twists and I devoured the story, wanting to know how it was going to end. Ian is a good protagonist, conflicted and honorable. I missed some of his backstory because I hadn't read earlier books, but it wasn't much of a bother to this story. I'll definitely be grabbing more of Charles Todd's works. ( )

In which Ian Rutledge continues to battle his inner demons, Crime and his superiors at Scotland Yard. The writing team called Charles Todd has done it again - this series never fails to please. This is one of the best. ( )
