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.

Legacy of the Dead
Average rating
4.6 / 5
Typical Rutledge the tormented hero
May 5th, 2015
Detective story with a difference. These earlier tales a little bit darker than the later books. Recommend reading the entire series if you can find them

Legacy of the Dead
February 14th, 2015
Another great story in a superb series featuring a troubled former WW1 Army officer back in his old profession of Detective Inspector. The spectre of the war looms in all these books as Rutledge battles his demons while trying to solve fascinating and complex crimes. Read the lot.
