Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Scotland Yard's Ian Rutledge finds himself caught in a twisted web of vengeance, old grievances, and secrets that lead back to World War I in the nineteenth installment of the acclaimed bestselling series. On the eve of the bloody Battle of the Somme, a group of English officers having a last drink before returning to the Front make a promise to each other: if they survive the battle ahead--and make it through the war--they will meet in Paris a year after the fighting ends. They will celebrate their good fortune by racing motorcars they beg, borrow, or own from Paris to Nice. In November 1919, the officers all meet as planned, and though their motorcars are not designed for racing, they set out for Nice. But a serious mishap mars the reunion. In the mountains just north of their destination, two vehicles are nearly run off the road, and one man is badly injured. No one knows--or will admit to knowing--which driver was at the wheel of the rogue motorcar. Back in England one year later, during a heavy rainstorm, a driver loses control on a twisting road and is killed in the crash. Was it an accident due to the hazardous conditions? Or premeditated murder? Is the crash connected in some way to the unfortunate events in the mountains above Nice the year before? The dead driver wasn't in France--although the motorcar he drove was. If it was foul play, was it a case of mistaken identity? Or was the dead man the intended victim after all? Investigating this perplexing case, Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge discovers that the truth is elusive--and that the villages on the South Downs, where the accident happened, are adept at keeping secrets, frustrating his search. Determined to remain in the shadows this faceless killer is willing to strike again to stop Rutledge from finding him. This time, the victim he chooses is a child, and it will take all of Rutledge's skill to stop him before an innocent young life is sacrificed"--

    During WWI, on the eve of the Battle of the Somme, seven British officers promise to reunite in Paris after the war to stage an informal road race to Nice. The surviving five meet as planned, and, during their race, two of them nearly die in what appear to be deliberate attempts to cause their cars to crash. A year later, in England, a parish priest dies in an automobile accident; oddly, but perhaps not coincidentally, the car he was driving is owned by one of the British officers. Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge is tasked with finding out what's going on; when his car is tampered with, too, apparently with the intent of doing him serious harm, he becomes determined to catch the culprit with all possible speed. The long-running Rutledge series has developed a devoted audience over the years, and this latest effort, boasting a clever story with some interesting twists, will do nothing to diminish readers' enthusiasm for a fascinating character and some first-rate historical writing.
