Summary, etc.:
"A peaceful Welsh village is thrown into turmoil when a terrified boy stumbles on a body in a nearby river. The man appears to have fallen from the canal aqueduct spanning the valley. But there is no identification on the body other than a military tattoo and an unusual label in his shirt collar; he isn't a local, and no one will admit to having seen him before. With little to go on, the village police turn to Scotland Yard and Inspector Ian Rutledge for help."--Publisher.

    Todd's Ian Rutledge series continues to display both quality and consistency in this twenty-third installment. In 1921, Rutledge, a Scotland Yard inspector, is sent off to a small village in Wales to determine the identity of a man who died in a fall and may have been murdered. Rutledge accomplishes that, but knowing who the dead man was doesn't help much in figuring out who killed him and why. Regular series readers will note that Ian seems more tortured than usual by his internal companion, Hamish MacLeod. Hamish died by firing squad in WWI, at the orders of his commanding officer, Rutledge, and now he lives inside Ian's head. Ian knows that when he hears Hamish's voice now, it isn't really Hamish talking, but that doesn't keep Ian from worrying about the state of his mind. As usual, Hamish makes only brief appearances in the book, but his presence looms large over the whole story. He's like a filter: everything Rutledge says and does is colored by guilt over having caused the death of a good man. A must-read for series fans. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
