A Lonely Death
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: January 2011
Duration: 11 hours 0 minutes
Three men have been murdered in a Sussex village, and Scotland Yard has been called in. It’s a baffling case. The victims are soldiers who survived the horrors of the Great War only to meet a ghastly end in the quiet English countryside two years later. Each had been garroted, with small ID disks left in their mouths. But even Scotland Yard’s presence doesn’t deter this vicious and clever killer. Shortly after Inspector Ian Rutledge arrives, a fourth soldier is found dead. With few clues to go on and the pressure building, Rutledge must gamble everything to find answers—his job, his reputation, and even his life.
“[The] subtle prose and profound empathy for all [the] characters enhance a suspenseful and twisty plot.”--Publishers Weekly
