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. Who was the woman who lived and died behind the red door? Who was the man who never came home from the Great War, for the simple reason that he might never have gone? And what have they to do with a man who cannot break the seal of his own guilt without damning those he loves most?
Solve another case with Inspector Ian Rutledge.

"One of the strongest entries yet in a series that shows no sign of losing steam. Once again Todd perfectly balances incisive portraits of all the characters, not just the complex and original lead." (Publishers Weekly)
This file would not play properly on my iPod. It would start out, then freeze. I tried downloading other Formats, and did a Concierge on-line chat -- to no avail. Irritating.
I never understood who Hamas was, and if he was a double personality, how did he come about? The story was pretty good, but it had too many unnecessary twist.
