    I am delighted to see that Charles Todd the writing duo is back in a great style I have been a fan of the Rutledge series for many years now, and in my opinion Book 22 is one of the best in it It is 1921 and Ian Rutledge is tasked with finding a murderer of a woman whose body is found in a stone circle in Avebury, ancient though not that famous as Stonehenge The investigation was originally conducted by Chief Inspector Leslie who failed to track down the murderer This case will test Ian s I am delighted to see that Charles Todd the writing duo is back in a great style I have been a fan of the Rutledge series for many years now, and in my opinion Book 22 is one of the best in it It is 1921 and Ian Rutledge is tasked with finding a murderer of a woman whose body is found in a stone circle in Avebury, ancient though not that famous as Stonehenge The investigation was originally conducted by Chief Inspector Leslie who failed to track down the murderer This case will test Ian s loyalty to the extreme.I always enjoy the way Rutledge analyzes each clue and puts puzzle pieces correctly This and his quiet though disturbed by the past personality make me reach out for every offering by the writing duo

    It has been a pleasure to be back in the capable hands of the mother son duo who comprise Charles Todd I have been away too long At this point in Inspector Ian Rutledge s story it has been some three years or so since the end of the war and his return to Scotland Yard Those years have not been easy as he continues to live with the side effects of the shell shock he suffered during trench warfare And he continues to have Hamish as a constant vocal reminder of his worst wartime memory.While qu It has been a pleasure to be back in the capable hands of the mother son duo who comprise Charles Todd I have been away too long At this point in Inspector Ian Rutledge s story it has been some three years or so since the end of the war and his return to Scotland Yard Those years have not been easy as he continues to live with the side effects of the shell shock he suffered during trench warfare And he continues to have Hamish as a constant vocal reminder of his worst wartime memory.While quotations are not encouraged from ARCs as texts may change prior to publication, there is one that I want to include as it is so much a part of Rutledge and his daily existence Shell shock, it was called Breaking under fire But Rutledge couldn t accept that he d been the lone survivor He d sacrificed one to save the many For Nothing And when the war was over Hamish came home with Rutledge in the only way possible Not as a ghost, not as a living man, but as a voice that haunted Rutledge night and day A reminder of that night Survivors guilt, Dr Fleming had called it Seeing in Hamish MacLeod all the many dead he d sent into battle and the voice hadn t faded with the Armistice Dr Fleminghad also warned him that it might never stop p 25 In this episode, Rutledge has completed a complicated murder inquiry when he is tasked with re investigating the murder of an unidentified woman found near one of the standing stones at Avebury in Wiltshire The original investigating officer is someone Ian knows reasonably well, as well as his superior at the Yard, so the situation has the potential to be awkward The investigation begins and Rutledge and the reader learn about the town and setting of Avebury, the stones and other early sites in the area All contribute to the story, the attempt to identify the woman, etc Why was she killed, and why in Avebury of all places As with the books in the series I have read before, this novel is well written, includes psychological insights on many characters, not only Rutledge, has a good sense of history, and well done settings.I recommend this book highly and, personally, I intend to return and read those few episodes I have neglected, some of which are waiting on my kindle.I received a copy of A Divided Loyalty through the Goodreads Giveaway program The review is my own

    It s 3.5 stars but I can t round it up because of all the repeated and repeated redundancies re Ian s war experience, past regretted deeds and all the other WWI voices heard holdovers You got that for the first 7 or 8 books in this series and by making such a flashback prequel it encompasses just too much repetition to me The cases were well done, but there is so much travel and inquiry here too that it just gets same same and extremely slow Yet I feel that the crux crossed within the wo It s 3.5 stars but I can t round it up because of all the repeated and repeated redundancies re Ian s war experience, past regretted deeds and all the other WWI voices heard holdovers You got that for the first 7 or 8 books in this series and by making such a flashback prequel it encompasses just too much repetition to me The cases were well done, but there is so much travel and inquiry here too that it just gets same same and extremely slow Yet I feel that the crux crossed within the workplace duplicity made up for the endless stops, renting rooms etc And I felt that Kate at least got a luncheon.Knowing these people and how staid Ian is I just think within London itself makes this particular series fardishy and carved Avebury and all the road time, just not so much And there was a passage near the beginning of the book that completely gave away what the perp situation was in theinteresting case which I find took quite a bit of the interest out of me.Still, the Rutledge world does take you away to a well formed prose story of another time and place in which all the tiny details so muchmatter It always amazes me how much they can tell re class, role in life JUST from the victim s custom made clothing, shoes, hats etc
