Search the Dark is the third of Todd's mysteries set just after the First World War. Dorset is the latest setting for the talents of Inspector Ian Rutledge, a veteran of the First World War still haunted-literally-by his actions. Indeed, his personal ghost only serves to complicate things as his inner doubts blend into the trauma of the case. The disappearance of two children, the murder of a woman supposed to be their mother, and an unstable suspect who may or may not be guilty form the bones of Todd's latest psychological thriller, augmented by the in-depth and impressive character analysis that distinguishes his novels.

"Set just after the WWI in Dorset, this murder mystery involves psychological twists and turns of the heart. Inspector Ian Rutledge, a mentally impaired veteran through whose brain an incubus named Hamish communicates, finds himself surrounded by others who have also been damaged in one way or another by the war. The unknown or invisable injuries may be the ones that are the most dangerous. Charles Todd handles the various British accents adroitly but has a little trouble with the French. This is a sad and thought-provoking story set before scientific testing would have changed its outcome. B.H.B. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
