    Story

    Late on a spring night in 1920, five boys cross the Yorkshire dales to the ruins of Fountains Abbey, intent on raising the Devil. Instead, they stumble over the Devil himself, sitting there watching them. Terrified, they run for their lives, leaving behind a book on alchemy stolen from their schoolmaster. The next morning, a body is discovered in the cloisters of the abbey--a man swathed in a hooded cloak and wearing a gas mask.

    Scotland Yard’s Inspector Ian Rutledge brought the Great War home with him, and its horrors haunt him still. On New Year’s Eve 1919, he finds a brass cartridge casing, similar to countless others he’d seen on the battlefield, on the steps of a friend’s house. Soon there are more, purposely placed where he is sure to discover them. Unexpectedly drawn away from London to a small Northamptonshire village, he investigates the strange case of a local constable shot with a bow and arrow.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend all of Charles Todd's Inspector Rutledge books to everyone.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, it flows nicely and leaves subtle clues. It is difficult to decide who the murderer is before the end and that is how I believe a mystery should be.


    What does Samuel Gillies bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I do not see Samuel Gillies as Inspector Rutledge. His voice is good for the other parts, but not Rutledge. I prefer a different reader.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Not to be missed

    Story
    (203)

    A society wedding at Ely Cathedral in Cambridgeshire becomes a crime scene when a man is murdered. After another body is found, the baffled local constabulary turns to Scotland Yard. Though the second crime had a witness, her description of the killer is so strange it's unbelievable. Despite his experience, Inspector Ian Rutledge has few answers of his own. The victims are so different that there is no rhyme or reason to their deaths. Nothing logically seems to connect them - except the killer. As the investigation widens, a clear suspect emerges. But for Rutledge, the facts still don't add up, leaving him to question his own judgment.

    Kathi says: "Another great Ian Rutledge book!"

    The inspector is my favorite. He is human and has flaws, but always solves a complex murder.

    He brings all of the characters to life. He is the best narrator that I have had the pleasure of listening to.

    June 1920. In a house with a red door lies the body of a woman who has been bludgeoned to death. Rumor has it that two years earlier, she'd painted that door to welcome her husband back from the Front - only he never came home. Meanwhile, in London, a man suffering from a mysterious illness first goes missing and then just as suddenly reappears. He is unable to explain his recovery. Inspector Ian Rutledge must solve the cases.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Red Door to be better than the print version?

    No, Charles Todd is an excellent writer. I have enjoyed all of his book, but I like them on audio with Simon Prebble as the reader.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The inspector of course. He is flawed, loaded with issues like all human beings.


    What about Simon Prebble’s performance did you like?

    His voice is perfect for the character. I do not think I would enjoy the inspector with any other voice.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, but it kept my attention and I was up late at night to finish it. It is a page turner.

    Please keep this author and reader together and have more available on audible.

    After two London men end their business partnership, one of them is savagely murdered in a medieval tithe barn on his estate in Somerset. Investigating the killing, Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge discovers that the victim was universally despised in Cambury - even the victim's wife and the town's police inspector are suspect. And yet in London circles, the man was highly regarded. What triggered his death?

    On a freezing December night, with a full moon hovering in the black sky over New York City, two people are brutally murdered, the death scenes marked by eerie, matching calling cards: moon-faced clocks investigators fear ticked away the victims' last moments on earth. Renowned criminologist Lincoln Rhyme immediately identifies the clock distributor and has the chilling realization that the killer, who has dubbed himself the Watchmaker, has more murders planned in the hours to come.

    Gregory says: "Strained Believability (Possible Spoiler)"
    "Classic Rhymes"
    Overall

    The book moves at a fast pace, keeping the reader's attention throughout. One of my favorites, although all of the Lincoln Rhyme series are favorites.
