"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Editorial Reviews

Review

TOP PICK IN MYSTERY:  “Readers can’t ask for more than Todd’s masterful plotting, terrific characters and one of the finest protagonists in modern suspense.” (BookPage.com)

“The best one yet... It is a rare case when a book this far into a series can still surprise, but that is exactly what The Gate Keeper does. Highly recommended for historical mystery fans.” (The BOLO Books Review)

“In a series known for intelligent plots, Todd’s 20th novel about Ian [Rutledge] excels. The Gate Keeper delivers an emotional novel... as well as an involving story about how the war affected other former soldiers and the families and towns to which they came home.” (SouthFlorida.com)

“Exceptionally clever plot... As always, Todd... deepen[s] their crafty whodunit with a moving exploration of their astute sleuth’s inner torments.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“For Todd fans, it’s another excuse to keep reading.” (Wilmington Star News)

“This mystery is one of the finest in the series... One of the best I have read by Charles Todd—very highly recommended!” (Historical Novels Review)

“Charles Todd (actually a mother-son writing team) pulls off the voice-in-the-head device exquisitely. Moreover, the series is populated with highly nuanced characters, and the historical research is spot on. In Racing the Devil, the pacing is compelling.” (Newark Star Ledger)

“Inspector Rutledge shares the pantheon with Morse, Rebus, and even Sherlock Holmes--a fascinating, complex, and heartbreaking hero we admire, respect, and cannot forget. Charles Todd’s brilliantly evocative and historically revealing mysteries are top shelf, top drawer, and top of my list.” (Hank Phillippi Ryan, Anthony, Agatha and Mary Higgins Clark award-winning author of Say No More)

“Todd writes a rich mystery, but in investigating the murder Rutledge also probes the psychic wounds of the village and tries to minister to the collective survivor guilt of the living. ‘The dead,’ as the voice in his head tells him, ‘still believe it was worth dying for.’” (Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review)

“Todd’s rich storytelling shines in Racing the Devil, showing an England forever changed by The Great War, yet determined to survive.” (South Florida Sun Sentinel)

From the Back Cover

Since the Great War’s end, Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge has suffered from shell shock, with only two constants to sustain him: his police work and his sister, Frances. Now Frances is married, and Rutledge cannot shake a deepening sense of loss.  

Unable to sleep, Rutledge drives out of London into the countryside. He’s jolted from his memories when his headlamps pick out a motorcar stopped in the road. Stand-ing next to the vehicle is a woman in evening dress, with blood on her hands and a dead man at her feet.

She swears she didn’t kill Stephen Wentworth—that a stranger fired a single shot before vanishing into the night. Rutledge is asked to take on the case, but when he probes the victim’s background, the Inspector discovers that Wentworth’s life was shrouded in mystery. His estranged family call him a murderer. But who did Wentworth kill? When a second suspicious death occurs, the evidence
suggests a predator is on the loose. But where is he?
