2010 book 38

Charles Todd's The Red Door
Todd is actually a mother and son writing team, and this is their 11th mystery about a Scotland Yard Inspector--I haven't read the first 10, which wasn't a huge detriment to enjoying this one, but I did wonder what exactly happened to this guy in WWI that causes him to be haunted by a Scottish soldier. Anyway, a missing persons case involving a wealthy family gets tied into a small-town murder of a woman who never stopped hoping her husband would come home from the war. It was readable enough but I doubt I'll read the others. B.
