Hunting Shadows and is set in 1920. Rutledge is eager to get out of London, especially to avoid the impatient acting chief superintendent. Two murders within two weeks in the Fen country represent an unusual event, and the assistance of Scotland Yard is needed. Rutledge begins the case literally in the fog, when he loses his way in a heavy mist while trying to get to his first destination. The case proceeds at a moderate pace, and Rutledge scrambles to figure things out quickly to keep the superintendent happy and to bring the murderer to justice. Fans of the series will love this installment, and any reader who likes character based crime fiction will find something to like in this novel.
