PROOF OF GUILT
This mother/son writing team’s Inspector Ian Rutledge books are set in the period after WWI in Britain. Rutledge suffers from what we would now call PTSD, then not clearly understood. A horrifying event in the war leaves him with a voice in his head of one of his men. The pace is slowed by Rutledge’s driving from town to town to gather and interpret the truth. Excellent writing, strong characters and a complicated mystery make this book first-rate.
