"Full of suspense, surprises, and sympathetic characters."-Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel"No mystery series I can think of captures the sadness and loss that swept over England after World War I with the heartbreaking force of Charles Todd's books about Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge."-Chicago TribuneThe remarkable Charles Todd has created one of the most unforgettable characters in mystery and crime fiction: Inspector Ian Rutledge, shell-shocked veteran of "the Great War." A False Mirror is one of Todd's most powerful novels, plunging his tormented protagonist into the center of a brutal crime that painfully echoes events in Rutledge's own past. Poignant, evocative, and continually surprising, A False Mirror is further proof that Charles Todd is well deserving of the critical acclaim the Rutledge novels have earned; a New York Times bestselling author who belongs among the acknowledged masters of the genre, including P. D. James, Elizabeth George, Ruth Rendell, and Jacqueline Winspear.
