It is 1932 and John Madden, former Scotland Yard Inspector, is now a farmer in the peaceful Surrey countryside. However his peace is about to be shattered, for when a young girl goes missing, it is he who discovers her disfigured body hidden in a wood. Disturbed by what he has seen he is convinced the killer has struck before . . . When a second body is found, Madden's instinct is proved right - there is a multiple killer at large. Allying himself with his old colleagues, and against the wishes of his anxious wife, he immerses himself in one more case, and his insights into the personality of the man they are seeking are soon borne out. But he will have to stay one step ahead of a killer who is a master of reinvention, and who has been covering his tracks for many years. And soon significant links are discovered in Germany, where the Nazis are on the brink of power . . .… (mais)

I enjoyed the first volume in this series but not this one. Both were a bit slow paced and overly detailed for my liking, especially about the sensitivities around Scotland Yard taking over a crime investigation from the local, rural police, but I wasn't too bothered by that in the first volume as it was quite suspenseful and the character of the detective, John Madden, was interesting. Now, in The Blood-Dimmed Tide it is 11 years later (1932). Why let a good detective sit on the shelf for 11 years?? Anyway, he is married now with two kids and has taken up farming, having resigned from Scotland Yard. What is the point of side-lining him like this?? His wife does not want him anywhere near crime investigations. So, as a result, he is only on the periphery until near the end. This means we are stuck with a few quite boring Scotland Yard fuddie-duddies and a young local police man for the bulk of the book. For me, the plot was too convoluted and slow paced. Also, I have to confess that I find it hard to enjoy a crime novel involving the rape and murder of children, but this is more about me than the book. On the positive side, this author really knows how to create suspense as he did late in this one. Too bad there was so little suspense until about 80% through the book. ( )

Good book, well written. The subject matter was too creepy for my tastes. Will not get any others from this author. ( )

This is the second in Airth’s series of John Madden mysteries. "The Blood-Dimmed Tide" takes place a decade later than the first book in the series. Madden is no longer in the police force and is now a farmer. The search for a girl in which Madden discovers the body brings him in on the periphery of the case. And he keeps getting deeper and deeper into it although he and the police, who are relying on him, try to keep his involvement from his wife. Sussing out killers seems to be his calling in spite of trying to deny that side of himself.

As I was once again pulled into the suspense of the hunt for a killer, I realized what makes these mysteries so compelling. The author makes even the people who die well rounded characters with hopes and aspirations and ties to the people around. You just don’t know who will survive because the people that are written so you care about them, will not all make it to the end of the story. I hope that the Madden series continues for a long run

This is a book that I would wish to give more than 5 stars if it was possible. It is that good! This second book in the Inspector John Madden series is set in 1932, which is is some 14 years later than the first book in the series. John Madden has left the police force, married his physician wife Helen who we met in book one, and has a son and daughter of his own. He owns and operates a farm in south England in the Surrey area. Life is good for John and his family and Helen in particular, is very happy to have him away from the police and Scotland Yard. But John is thrust back into that life when he discovers the battered body of a young girl. In spite of Helen's best efforts John Madden is drawn into the manhunt for this particularly cold-blooded, sadistic killer. The search involves John's old colleagues from the yard to examine crimes in Europe in Germany and Switzerland as they try to track the history of their man. Airth's skills as an author are many and varied, and his method of writing is bold, clear and brilliant. His plots unfold with precision and scrupulous detail. This is a powerful series that really grabs its readers. My only objection is the length of the timelines of these books. The plots of each book have several years in between. I don't want this series to end quickly. I want lots and lots of books about John Madden. ( )
