The weathered remains found on a Scottish mountainside may be those of Eleanor Gray, but the imperious Lady Maude Gray, Eleanor`s mother, will have to be handled delicately. This is not the only ground that Inspector Ian Rutledge of Scotland Yard must tread carefully, for the case will soon lead him to Scotland, where many of Rutledge`s ghosts rest uneasily. But it is an unexpected encounter that will hold the most peril.


For in Scotland Rutledge will find that the young mother accused of killing Eleanor Gray is a woman to whom he owes a terrible debt. And his harrowing journey to find the truth will lead him back through the fires of his past, into secrets that still have the power to kill.

A book by Charles Todd

Charles Todd (Charles Todd) Charles and Caroline Todd are a mother and son, a creative tandem who introduced the world to a new detective, Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge. The coauthors currently live on the east coast of the United States in North Carolina. Caroline Todd holds a BA in English Literature and History and an MA in International Relations. Her son Charles is a bachelor of arts, business consultant and excellent culinary specialist. Charles`s uncle, a pilot who took part in the First World War, talked a lot about her, and his grandmother stuffed his grandson with marvelous ghost stories. These stories later allowed the co-authors to describe the life of England in the early twentieth century so realistically and vividly. Charles Todd read a lot about the rich history of England, about ancient legends. The Scottish knight and military leader, the leader of the Scots in the War of Independence from England, Sir William Wallace and King Arthur were Charles` favorite heroes. Books about Admiral Nelson and Winston Churchill were tabletop for Charz Todd. Mother and son often traveled around the country, talked with the villagers, learned a lot about their life, which was significantly different from the life of the townspeople. All these trips provided a lot of material for the future works of the tandem. Charles Todd thoroughly studied the history of the Civil War in the United States, the First and Second World Wars, made many voyages by sea and has a large collection of seashells from all over the world. Todd leads a sporty lifestyle and loves to play golf. As a business consultant, Charles often finds himself in places where he is not very welcome. The experience of establishing communication in such conditions will be further used in the works, in particular, it will be reflected in the ability of Ian Rutledge to complete the task, despite the opposition of the local population. Caroline is a passionate reader who loves to read poetry aloud. Just like her son, she studied the history of world wars a lot. Travels often, enjoys gardening and oil painting. As a specialist in the field of international relations, she is always aware of the latest international events. A fan of the baseball and soccer teams. Like her son, she loves the sea very much, but you will never meet her on the beach. Both are very animal lovers and they even had a lizard named Schnickelfritz. As the authors themselves say: writing together is always a test, and both of them are happy to mock each other in the process of writing the next work. Their friends know that Charles can easily break his mother`s computer, and she in turn upsets his parties. "A Test of Wills" was nominated for the Creasey Award in the UK. She also won the Barry Award and was nominated for many other well-known awards, including Edgar. In addition, this work was included in the list of "100 best detectives of the XX century." The novel Red Door is nominated for the Macavity Prize. Various prizes were also awarded to Wings of Fire, Search the Dark, Legacy of the Dead, A Cold Treachery.
