The Confession (Large Print) (Ian Rutledge Mysteries)

The Confession (Large Print) (Ian Rutledge Mysteries) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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

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

The Confession is historical crime fiction at its finest, continuing Charles Todds New York Times bestselling mystery series featuring severely damaged British World War I veteran, and yet still astonishingly efficient Scotland Yard inspector, Ian Rutledge. Todds 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 Londons best detective finds himself ensnared in a dark and deadly investigation that unearths shocking small town secrets dating back more than a century.

Synopsis:

Declaring he needs to clear his conscience, a dying man walks into Scotland Yard and confesses that he killed his cousin five years ago during the Great War. When Inspector Ian Rutledge presses for details, the man evades his questions, revealing only that he hails from a village east of London. With little information and no body to open an official inquiry, Rutledge begins to look into the case on his own.

Fewer than two weeks later, the alleged killers body is found floating in the Thames, a bullet in the back of his head. Searching for answers, Rutledge discovers that the dead man was not who he claimed to be. What was his real name—and who put a bullet in his head? Were the “confession” and his own death related? Or was there something else in the victims past that led to his murder?
