Mystery and History: A Good Combination

Melanie's picture

Mysteries and history, two enjoyable stand-alone genres, can be unbeatable when combined. In the Charles Todd series, set shortly after “The Great War,” the main character, Ian Rutledge, was an officer during the war and has returned to his position as an inspector for Scotland Yard. This engrossing mystery is filled with interesting characters and the author’s vivid descriptions of the era transport readers effortlessly to another time. Enjoy the Charles Todd books and other mysteries set during World War I.
