2021 Book #54. 2021. Insp Rutledge of Scotland Yard (c. 1920) is sent to Wales to investigate the death of an unidentified man who fell (or was pushed) from the structure on the cover. 23rd in a series. Interesting setting (post WW1 England) but way too complicated of a plot. ( )

You'll notice from the list below that I haven't read all of this series, but they are certainly worth following.

While each adds to the development of Ian Rutledge's character, each certainly works quite well as a stand alone. Most are set in the decade after World War One and Rutledge, an Inspector with Scotland Yard, is battling the aftermath of the war. The complexity of this case is typical of most of the stories. The body of an ex-soldier turns up in a river in Wales, and from there Rutledge establishes the identity of the man, and looks for the reason why he is so far from home.

It is typical of Rutledge that he goes that extra mile, looking for why Sam Milford has been killed and by whom. It is a tangled trail that leads him to look for a missing child, why she has been kidnapped, and to uncovering deaths of people who at first glance don't seem to have anything to do with the original case.

The main plot is surrounded by a number of sub-plots, many of them giving us further background to Rutledge himself.

My rating: 4.7

A Fatal Lie (2021) (Insp. Rutledge #23) by Charles Todd. The Inspector Rutledge mysteries have evolved over the years. For more than 20 books the Inspector has had his constant companion,
Hamish MacLeod, buried within his skull. The voice of the long dead Scot has been his warning to danger and guide to his insanity, but over the long series there has been a lessening of the need for Hamish to come calling. It is a good sign that Rutledge is dealing with his PTSD after WWI.
While Hamish plays a good part in this book also, he isn’t to the forefront as often and I like that Rutledge seems to be coping with his guilt to a greater degree.
The story is set in Northern Wales.when a body is discovered in a river. There is an aqueduct nearby that it appears he fell from. But the body is not that of a local, nor that of the riverboaters who use the aqueduct. Soon the local constable put in a request to Scotland Yard for help.
Rutledge is sent, not for his prowess as a detective, but mostly to get him out of the Chief Superintendent’s sight. But the Super is doing our hero a favor by getting him out from the dreaded paperwork and into the field, although a long way from London. Despite his initial pleasure with the assignment, Rutledge quickly finds himself embroiled in a very dark mystery. The dead man is identified as Sam Milford, a well respected man but not from the area. The questions come in a rush starting with why was he up on the aqueduct, who was he with and why was he pushed off.
I found this to be a very nice mystery with the clues coming slower than the lies of the locals, yet with the unraveling of both satisfying. This is one of the stronger stories coming from the writing duo of ‘Charles Todd” in the last several years. ( )

My first and last Charles Todd book with Inspector Rutledge from Scotland Yard.
It started off well with a murder near the Aqueduct at Trevor, a missing little girl and veterans of WWI. The story got bogged down in too many false leads and endless trips through Wales and others regions. Three people murdered, the motive not very believable, plot not very compelling, characters not particularly interesting. ( )
