Adult Fiction TODD
Summary: December 1919. Deep in England's frozen Lake District, constables discover a scene of unimaginable carnage: the bodies of five family members splayed across a bloodied cottage kitchen. A search is mounted in the frigid countryside for the youngest boy, missing from the scene, and Inspector Ian Rutledge is pulled from a court case and sent driving north through the night. But there is no sign of the missing boy-or of any strangers who might have committed such a terrible crime. As Rutledge wends his way through a tangle of jealous relatives and family secrets, he will discover more reasons for murder than the people of this bleak hamlet are willing to reveal-and somewhere amidst the peaks and valleys of this beautiful country lurks a murderer who considers so much spilt blood the least of his revenge.
