Restless. The twentieth installment of the Inspector Ian Rutledge series by the mother-son writing team named Charles Todd is titled, The Gate Keeper. After Ian’s sister, Frances, weds and departs on her honeymoon, a restless Rutledge leaves London and takes an aimless drive. On a desolate road in Suffolk, he comes on the scene of a woman standing outside a car in the middle of the road with her bloody hands over a man lying on the ground. Despite having left his Scotland Yard credentials at home and being considered a murder suspect himself, Rutledge injects himself into a complicated investigation that will delight most lovers of crime fiction.
