The second in the Inspector Rutledge series. Inspector Rutledge has been sent to Cornwall away from the Ripper case. In Cornwall, he investigates the suicides of an author and her brother and the fall of another brother. Inspector Rutledge digs in and discovers the murders that had befallen the family before. Great ending. Very exciting. Love the Hamish interaction with Rutledge. Great book! Looking forward to the next one.
