For the last several months I have been reading through the large spate of psychological thrillers being published all supposed to be the new Gone Girl or Girl on the train Some are good some not but they have all become jumbled in my head one just blending in with the other and I grew tired of them It was so nice to return to straight out detective procedural or historical novels Need to catch up on some of my series of which this is oneTwo years after the war ended Rutledge who is emotionally scarred from the Battle at Somme has returned to police work He carries some excess baggage with him the ghost or spirit if you will of a man from his battalion that he had to execute for disobeying a direct order His name is Hamish and he is Rutledge s constant companion I This outing four young well bred women are accused of killing drowning a young well of banker s sonThis period piece has such a great authentic atmosphere Slower paced detective work took time back in the days before the internet and social media they had to uestion witnesses sometimes several times travel which took longer and then uestion again Looking for a thread to pull and than following it with the hopeful end result of putting them together to form a complete pictureRutledge is a likable character Hamish adds something a little special and a little different to this series Looking forward to the next case

Eighteenth in the Inspector Ian Rutledge historical mystery series and revolving around an inspector suffering from PTSD This story takes place in Cornwall in the fall of 1920My TakeTodd jams us up in a hard twist right from the start Four girls enjoying a last row on the river until they try to rescue a drowning man and encounter a lying witnessI gotta say from the start I did not like Victoria What a selfish little snob Her whole attitude about a man in trouble on the water was so cold It was mean of Todd to leave us wondering for so long as to what really happened on that rowboat She and Trevose would deserve each otherI do have some uibbles I don t understand what purpose was served by Todd going on about Ian s past cases and his past women Why wouldn t the police have immediately had the boat raised I m not sure how Major Gordon is Kate s father if Kate is Jean s cousin and Jean is the major s daughter per events in A Fine Summer s Day 17 I don t appreciate the cousin not trying to do something to stop what s stalking her what with the evidence he s leaving behind And how is she supporting herselfIt s a different world then A class system that restricted friendships One that treated the upper classes uite differently from the rest Easy to see as technically the four girls are under arrest but their parents wield enough clout that they arrange for the girls to be held in Grenville s custody under house arrest The restrictions placed on women thank god for women s libThen again our world is no different today from then The people of 1920 revile George for his appearance after what he suffered fighting for his country We forget so uickly what our soldiers suffer to protect us What is with peopleWhen you think that if everyone had simply told Rutledge the whole truth when he asked for ithow many lives would have been saved With the trouble he s caused and he has the gall to ask What s an honest man to do As for Victoria s confession WTF How could she actually think she could get away with lying As for the Saunderses Jesus I understand the grief they re suffering so why not do what you can to help the police Why paint liesThere wasn t much of Hamish in this Is Rutledge coming to terms with his guiltIt s a series of nasty twists that have bound up this investigation Red herrings A misguided thirst for vengeance Lies The Story Inspector Barrington was the first Scotland Yard detective sent to Cornwall to investigate the murderous drowning of Harry Saunders But that heart attack of the inspector s got in the way Rutledge is the second string sent with Markham s ill wishes to find it was a rescue that turns to murder for four young women One is the woman with whom Rutledge is falling in love Who faces prisonLuckily their fathers are
