Lancashire, England: June, 1920. Who was the woman who lived and died behind the red door? What did she see before she died? And who was the man who never came home from the Great War, for the simple reason that he had never really gone? How is the woman’s death linked to his disappearance? And why is Scotland Yard blind to the connection, even when Inspector Ian Rutledge points it out?

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Debbie | 2/20/2014

    " superficial characters, disjointed read....I guess it's not a good idea to start with the 12th of a character...not at all the book I was 'sold on' from the library recommendations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kristi | 2/16/2014

    " I loved this book. The perfect holiday read because the suspense kept me coming back for more. I could so easy visualize the countryside of Hobson and the solitude of the house with the red door. And best of all, a surprise at the end...my very favorite. I will definitely look for more books in the Inspector Ian Rutledge series. "

    " I really liked this book. It was very interesting and held my attention so much that I finished it in two days. I lived in England for 3 years back in the late 70's. Two of my children were born in Oxford. And, we lived in Brill, Deddington and Upper Heyford. So, I recognized the places in the book. And, I still remember the Queen's English as well as their slang. It was a good mystery that keeps you guessing until the end. "

    " I was getting tired of Hamish, but lo, he is not so present here. I liked this one better than the more recent ones. It's nice to see the authors can sort of recharge, maybe because of the break with their new series? Anyway, this is a good'un. "
