The Red Door by Charles Todd

Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge is back in the 12th installment of the series set after World War I in 1920, England. Inspector Rutledge, haunted by Hamish, a Scottish deserter he had to execute towards the end of the war, offers comments on all aspects of Inspector Rutledge’s life.
The current case involves a woman who waited patiently for her husband to return from the war until she was murdered and a man who goes missing and then returns on his own. Two different cases start to converge with the murdered woman and the missing man having the last name of Teller. Everyone in the Teller family denies knowing Mrs. Florence Teller, whose husband, Peter, never returned from the war. As Inspector Rutledge digs deeper into the lives of the Teller family, he must decide who the real killers are and if he can bring them to justice.
