"A Pattern of Lies," "Hunting Shadows" and "A Question of Honor" are books written by Charles Todd. Charles Todd is a pseudonym used by American authors Caroline and Charles Todd, a mother-and-son writing team.
"A Pattern of Lies" is about Bess Crawford going to war-torn France to keep a pattern of lies from leading to more deaths after an explosion at the Ashton Gunpowder Mill kills more than 100 men. "Hunting Shadows" is about a wedding at Ely Cathedral in Cambridgeshire becoming the scene of a murder. Inspector Ian Rutledge investigates, and it brings back memories of something he saw during World War I.
"A Question of Honor" is about Bess Crawford, a World War I nurse and amateur detective, investigating an old murder that happened during her childhood in India. While investigating, something changes her and leaves her asking the question: How can facts lie?
