4.0 out of 5 stars An unthinkable crime, 7 July 2006

(VINE VOICE)   
As Herbert Baker (Anglican) is dying he insistently asks for a Catholic priest. When he goes to that great beyond he is sent off by both the vicar and the priest. This brings on speculations. Later the priest that questions Baker's sanity is himself dispatched. His dispatcher sets the scene to look like a simple robbery.

The local constable is content to pin the dead on an itinerant strongman (someone not local.) However as a courtesy, London has sent Inspector Ian Rutledge to support the local constabulary in its investigation. Naturedly Inspector Rutledge with the assistance or prodding of Hamish and a prying attitude comes to a different conclusion.

Staying true to the formula this is the fifth of the Inspector Ian Rutledge Mysteries. Instead of pointing out who Hamish is I suggest you start out reading "A Test of Wills." The mystery part of the novel is a series of overlapping stories some are red herrings others are integral to trying to out guess the characters. Aside from the mystery are the descriptions of the time and place (1919) Osterley.

4.0 out of 5 stars On par, 22 Mar 2013

This one is a little slow to start but picks up from half way. As usual 'the Todds' have a very clever plot but sometimes getting familiar with all the participants can get a bit confusing.
I do though enjoy the series very much. Certainly not 'run of the mill'
