Overview

With the publication of the New York Times Notable Book River of Darkness, Rennie Airth established himself as a master of suspense. The Blood-Dimmed Tide, set in 1932, marks the return of the beloved Inspector John Madden, whose discovery of a young girl’s mutilated corpse near his home in rural England brings him out of retirement despite his wife’s misgivings. Soon he finds himself chasing a killer whose horrific crime could have implications far afield in a Europe threatened by the rise of Hitler. A riveting, atmospheric, multilayered mystery, this intense and intelligent tale more than delivers on the promise of Rennie Airth’s first thriller.

Praise

“Unnerving… from [a] richly textured background, Airth draws a vivid cast of full-bodied characters and a plot that satisfies.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Airth’s first mystery, River of Darkness, was impressive enough to earn him several award nominations and much critical applause. [The Blood-Dimmed Tide] deserves the same treatment.” —Chicago Tribune
