Claiming he needs to clear his conscience, a dying man walks into Scotland Yard and confesses that he killed his cousin years ago during the war. When Inspector Ian Rutledge presses for details, the man dodges the questions, revealing only that he hails from the north of London in Essex.

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

Ian Rutledge investigates why a young man becomes an imposter and confesses a crime he didn?t commit. Ian?s reception in the isolated Essex fishing village is unaccountably cold and the prosperous family who inhabited the remote estate River?s Edge seem surrounded by tragedy.

It?s another of these fine mysteries by the Todd team. I didn?t see the resolution coming at all.

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.
