Charles Todd never lets me down. He has a way of building a story that grabs me and won't let loose. The first of the book seems tedious with all of the descriptions of the country side, but before i knew it I was sucked into the mystery. I really like Ian Rutledge although Hamish gets in the way from time to time. I wish that Ian would get a love interest. It thought maybe this story might provide him with that interest and maybe even a side kick. As usual, you will be left hanging to imagine the 'epilogue' for yourself. This drives me nuts. I can only hope it will be woven into the next story. I can't imagine what readers did when they had to wait a year for the next book. At least I have access to the next book at my library or Paperback Swap! If I read them back to back, then I don't lose the thread. Recommend!

I like the writing style, and the setting of England soon after WWI. This entry is okay, although spends too much time on the extremely large red herring (the accused); and I really would have liked to see a map of the area. I will probably continue reading the series, but am really tired of the spectre of Hamish having imaginary conversations with Rutledge; those who have not read earlier entries probably have no idea what he's doing in the story or Rutledge's head.
