HARPERCOLL

“One of the best historical series being written today.”
Washington Post

“Todd once and for all establishes the shell-shocked Rutledge as the genre’s most complex and fascinating detective.”
Entertainment Weekly

The Confession is historical crime fiction at its finest, continuing Charles Todd’s New York Times bestselling mystery series featuring severely damaged British World War I veteran, and yet still astonishingly efficient Scotland Yard inspector, Ian Rutledge. Todd’s troubled investigator wrestles with a startling and dangerous case that reaches far into the past when a false confession from a man who is not who he claims to be leads to a brutal murder. The Confession is a must-read for every fan of Elizabeth George, Martha Grimes, P.D. James, Ruth Rendell, and Jacqueline Winspear, as post-war London’s best detective finds himself ensnared in a dark and deadly investigation that unearths shocking small town secrets dating back more than a century.

Todd's books are becoming alike. Too bad, there was such promise.

Very good read.

I just finished reading it, I thought I enjoyed it, but now I couldn't tell you what it was about. It's true that Todd's books are all becoming the same. A lot of Rutledge's interest for me, was Hamish and he played a much lesser role in this, almost as if Rutledge is getting better, but more likely because the writing's going downhill.

All the books are starting to seem the same with unbelievable characters. Takes forever to proceed anywhere.

Hm. Todd’s books have become hit-or-miss for me lately, and unfortunately this was one of the “misses.” It’s well-written, but the plot seems to drag a little bit and I lost track of most of the names about halfway through. Killer seemed rather obvious to me as well.

Essex

A real disappointment--lots of driving between London and Essex, contrived and convoluted plot with underdeveloped characters.

I probably will not continue reading this series.
