In Search the Dark, the third entry in Charles Todd's remarkable series, the walking-wounded survivors of World War I crowd the English landscape. Scotland Yard's Inspector Rutledge is one of many who suffer from shell shock. He constantly hears--and responds to--the voice of Hamish, a Scottish soldier he shot for cowardice. His latest case does not help his fragile state of mind as it involves another weary and discouraged veteran, Bert Mowbray.

On his way to Lyme Regis to search for work, Bert looks out of the train window in a town called Singleton Magna, and sees an unbelievable sight--his wife and two children who he thought were killed in a London bombing raid. He leaps off the train and tries to find his family, racing desperately across fields and country roads, and finally winding up asleep under a tree. Meanwhile, the battered body of a woman is found on the edge of a cornfield, and Mowbray is arrested. Is the woman his wife? Did he kill her? And what happened to the two children who were with her?

Everywhere Rutledge looks, he shows us various forms of damage caused by the war--from the hopes of a local girl whose lover returned with a French wife, to the trauma that Mowbray is going through. As in the first two books, A Test of Wills and Wings of Fire, Todd demonstrates the massive damage done to an entire country by focusing on the small, personal battles of the survivors. --Dick Adler -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Format: Taschenbuch
I loved Search the Dark, but even more, I love the long-term relationship that Charles Todd is building with his readers. I see that others are getting weary of the disembodied (literally) voice of Hamish. Not I. I think he is one of the most original inventions in recent literature and after the first few incredulous chapters, I began to accept him and wove him right into my sense of reality. Charles Todd has chosen a very dark and difficult time in world history, World War I, which is more romanticized but much less understood than the wars since. I appreciate his attention to detail and look forward very much to the next installment.

I very much enjoy the Charles Todd mysteries. This particular book was especially good. I must admit though that the voice of the dead comrade is beginning to annoy me. I think the mysteries stand without that added twist. I think that perhaps a book that finally frees Inspector Rutledge from this particular demon is due. Otherwise, this was an excellent book with real characters and well thought out plot. I hate the cliche but it was a real "page turner" throughout.

Von Ein Kunde am 12. März 1999
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In 1919, a former soldier, Mowbray, abruptly wants off the train in the small town of Singleton Magda in Dorset. The weary-looking vet swears he has seen his wife and children with another man. Not too long after that incident, that same woman is found dead and her two children missing. An incoherent, except for obviously being suicidal, Mowbray is arrested for murder.
The local police force requests Scotland Yard assists them in finding the missing children. Inspector Rutledge, also a vet, is sent to investigate. Rutledge has his own problems as he has the voice of Hamish Macleod, a Scottish deserted he personally executed, living inside his own head. As Rutledge begins his inquiries, he encounters several other souls still struggling to recover from the horrors of the war. At the same time, he begins to wonder if Mowbray actually committed the crime.
The third Inspector Rutledge novel, SEARCH THE DARK, continues in the fine tradition of its predecessors by serving up a complex entertaining mystery as well as insight into the aftermath of war. The story lien sheds light on the period through the eyes of its characters, especially Rutledge. The secondary cast illuminates post World War I England with psychological insight into the various victims of the armed conflict. However, what makes Charles Todd's latest book and series so good is the historical mystery provides the proper counterpoint to the gloomy atmosphere that threatens to engulf everyone.

Remarkable mystery novel which makes you want to read the first two novels of Charles Todd . Post World War I years are a fascinating area in themselves and give a haunting "decor" to the Rutledge 'mysteries. Un roman et un auteur que je recommanderais a tous !

Excellent Addition to an Excellent Series 1. April 2002
Von P. Bigelow - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
in this third outing, Ian Rutledge, and his conscience Hamish, are sent to Dorset to investigate a murder of a woman and the disappearance of her two children. He follows each clue only to find more questions and additional clues.
This is British procedural writing at it's best. Todd has not suffered from second or third book syndrome. His writing is precise and concise - each word chosen with care. Rutledge contunues to be a tortured soul who is a compassionate and intelligent investigator. Todd's ending surprised me, but that just makes for good reading.
If you enjoy procedurals, make sure you read this series. If you've wanted to try a procedural, but didn't know where to begin, begin with this one - all others will pale by comparison.

Keep with this one if you like the series 27. November 2007
Von Paul S - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I wouldn't recommend this as an individual novel, for there are far better mysteries, not to mention books in this series by Todd. However, if you are reading the series in full, you should keep trudging through this one for the rewarding last quarter of the book.

It's really, really slow moving and dull for more than half the book, and has been noted in other reviews, comes up with a good ending that is surprising and entertaining. So I was glad I stuck with it. As I continue to work through this series, I hope I find this book is an abberation in pace.

Beautiful, moving writing 2. April 2008
Von Nico Brusso - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Inspector Ian Rutledge of Scotland Yard is tall, intelligent, well-bred, Oxford-educated, and as handsome as they come. All reasons enough for his jealous boss to get him out of headquarters, assign him chancy cases in the hinterlands, and if Rutledge fails, so much the better.

Before the Great War, Rutledge had been successful at the Yard. Five years of service as an Army officer in the muddy, stinking trenches in France, his wounds, and especially his mental trauma have left him questioning his own ability, wondering whether he still has the old skills, whether he can actually keep up with the challenges of returning to the job. He looks thin, haggard, and tired.

Shell shock has left Rutledge with the ineradicable presence in his mind of the voice of one Hamish MacLeod, a noncommissioned officer he had to have executed by firing squad for refusing to follow orders to suicidally advance the men into withering enemy fire. Hamish counterpoints everything Rutledge says, does, or thinks.

While the war killed hundreds of thousands of British soldiers and civilians, the survivors were profoundly changed, including most of the characters in "Search the Dark" by Charles Todd.

Rutledge is dispatched to Singleton Magna, a small town in rural Dorset county, southwest of London, where the victim's body was found. Bert Mowbray was arrested for the crime. Though Mowbray's wife and two children had been killed years before in a bombing in London, he insisted he had just seen them with another man getting off the train. Now the wife is dead, the children and her new man are missing, and Mowbray is in jail for murder. Rutledge must clear up the confusion, identify the victim, and find the children.

Rutledge's investigation takes him to several nearby towns, where other young women are missing, and there is no shortage of suspects. Charles Todd's characters and their relationships are fully formed. You'll be puzzled and intrigued to the end.
