"Tricky plotting and rich atmospherics distinguish bestseller Todd's 16th novel featuring Scotland Yard's Insp. Ian Rutledge...Todd (the pen name of a mother-son writing team) has rarely been better." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) on HUNTING SHADOWS "Another well-written, well-plotted entry in this always engaging mystery series. -- Booklist on HUNTING SHADOWS "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 on HUNTING SHADOWS "As always, the North Carolina-based mother and son who write under the pseudonym Charles Todd do a beautiful job with the period detail, making these books a nostalgic outing to England between the world wars." -- Raleigh News & Observer "Readers who stick with the chase, though, should be enthralled, as Rutledge sorts through a fascinating portrait gallery of witnesses and suspects, most of whom aren't telling him the whole truth." -- Wilmington News Journal "Of all the places where Inspector Ian Rutledge's Scotland Yard assignments have taken him, the desolate Fen country must surely be the eeriest. [This is an] excellent historical series." -- New York Times Book Review on HUNTING SHADOWS "Elusive clues, suspense and excellent writing make for reading pleasure." -- Oklahoma City Oklahoman on HUNTING SHADOWS
