The Reckoning

Title: The Reckoning

This is the fourth in an historical mystery series spanning the early 1920’s to 1947 and featuring John Madden, a Scotland Yard Inspector. Now retired from the force, Madden is called back to investigate a series of execution style murders using a World War I German Lugar. Is this revenge for some past deed? I am a great fan of Airth’s John Madden series for its vivid description of England during the interwar years as well as the main character’s deductive crime solving abilities. It would be best to begin the series with River of Darkness, published in 1999.
