It’s 1919, and the “War to End All
Wars” has been won. But there is no peace for Scotland Yard inspector Ian
Rutledge, recently returned from the battlefields of France shell-shocked and
tormented by the ever-present voice of the young Scot he had executed for
refusing an order. Escaping into his work to save his sanity, Rutledge
investigates the murder of a popular colonel in Warwickshire and his alleged
killer, a decorated war hero and close friend of the Prince of Wales.
The case is a political minefield,
and its resolution could mean the end of Rutledge’s career. Win or lose, the
cost may be more than the damaged investigator can bear, for the one witness
who can break the case open is, like Rutledge, a war-ravaged victim, and his
grim, shattered fate could well prove to be the haunted investigator’s own as
well. Download and start listening now!
