"Charles Todd hasn't made a misstep yet in his elegant series featuring Scotland Yard detective Ian Rutledge, and A Matter of Justice keeps the streak going."
-- Cleveland Plain Dealer

The Washington Post calls the Ian Rutledge novels by Charles Todd, "one of the best historical series being written today." A Matter of Justice --the eleventh in the New York Times Notable, Edgar#65533; Award-nominated, and Barry Award-winning series--brings back the haunted British police inspector and still shell-shocked World War One veteran in a tale of unspeakable murder in a small English village filled to bursting with dark secrets and worthy suspects. A New York Times bestseller as spellbinding and evocative as the best of Ruth Rendell, Anne Perry, Martha Grimes, and P.D. James, A Matter of Justice represents a new high for this exceptional storyteller.

More of the same .... which is to say, well-written, with interesting and well-drawn characters, evocative locations (especially the parts set on the Scilly Isles). I still find the inclusion (or intrusion) of Hamish a little annoying, but the overall writing is reason enough to keep reading the series. This one has a plausible motive (unlike a few earlier entries), and as usual some of the characters act in ways you would prefer they didn't. But that's life.

An excellent mystery with a complex and surprising ending.
