From the Inside Flap
Scotland Yard's Ian Rutledge must contend with two dangerous enemies in this latest complex mystery in the New York Times bestselling series
An unidentified body appears to have been run down by a motorcar and Ian Rutledge is leading the investigation to uncover what happened. While signs point to murder, vital questions remain. Who is the victim? And where, exactly, was he killed?
A clue leads Rutledge to a firm, built by two families, famous for producing and selling the world's best Madeira wine. There he discovers the current head of the English enterprise is missing. But is he the dead man? And do either his fiancée or his jilted former lover have anything to do with his disappearance?
With a growing list of suspects Rutledge knows that suspicion and circumstantial evidence is nothing without proof of guilt. But his new acting chief superintendent doesn't agree and wants Rutledge to stop digging and settle on the tidy answer. Rutledge must tread very carefully, for it seems that someone has decided that he, too, must die so that cruel justice can take its course.--Marilyn Stasio in the New York Times Book Review. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Was this book written by a Todd nephew? The plotting is all over the place. The legal issues make no sense. And the ending fails to resolve a central part of the plot. Did they run out of paper or time?
Did the editor/publisher neglect to tell the author(s) that they had not written the ending? I do not care how long a book is. I care if it isn’t complete.
I love the Ian Rutledge series and as my library had let the subscription for this book lapse, I bought a used copy.
In addition, I have been waiting with bated breath to see if Ian Rutlege becomes involved with his lady friend. Most annoyingly, as a quick aside, we are told that her husband, who is badly injured, has been discovered, and she is off to see him and that is the end of their relationship. I was not impressed at all with this story line development. The rest of the story is OK. It is certainly not the best in the series, and I was a little disappointed in the story.
