“World War I affected not only those who served, but those who stayed at home. Inspector Ian Rutledge has returned from the war but has brought back his own horrors and guilt. Now, he is faced with two cases, which, he suspects, may be connected. Filled with unexpected twists and turns plus the personal angst of Rutledge himself, The Red Door is one more satisfying chapter in the life of Inspector Rutledge, his family, and cohorts.”
— Wendy Foster Leigh, The King's English, Salt Lake City, UT


One of the best historical series being written today.”

Washington Post Book World


The accolades keep pouring in for Charles Todd and his New York Times Notable, Edgar® Award-nominated series featuring British police inspector and shell-shocked World War I veteran Ian Rutledge. In The Red Door, a disturbing puzzle surrounding a lie, a disappearance, and a woman’s death ensnares the haunted investigator. Richly atmospheric and unputdownable, The Red Door proves once more that New York Times bestseller Charles Todd belongs in the august company of Ruth Rendell, Anne Perry, Martha Grimes, Ian Ransom, Peter Robinson, P.D. James, and the other contemporary masters of British mystery.

Praise For…


“Fascinating and compelling.”

“One of the strongest entries yet in a series that shows no sign of losing steam….Once again Todd perfectly balances incisive portraits of all the characters, not just the complex and original lead.”

“Engaging and atmospheric.”

“A complex story with lots of unexpected twists and turns….A fun ride to a surprising conclusion.”

“Superb…haunting tale of love and loss.”

“In The Red Door, Charles Todd shows again that this series about Ian Rutledge, a battle-fatigued World War I veteran and Scotland Yard detective, is as fresh and original as when the shell-shocked detective debuted 12 novels ago.”

“An intriguing story that’s impossible to put down…reminiscent of Agatha Christie.”

“The book is more than a whodunit. Todd’s characters are well-wrought, his settings evocative, and the book a pleasure to read.”
