NO SHRED OF EVIDENCE is book 18 in the Inspector Ian Rutledge series I havenly previously read the first book in this series but I had no problem getting into this book There are some mentioning Peppermint Tea of events from previous books but I don t thinkne needs to read previous books to keep up with what s going Sunny Holiday on in NO SHRED OF EVIDENCEREAD THE REST OF THE REVIEW OVER AT FRESH FICTION Sigh I really really wanted to give this three stars but in all honesty I just can t One fine day four young women go boatingn the river On the way home they encounter a man whose boat is sinking and Zhang Xin: On the Return to China of course they try to rescue him Or do they In the end the man is dead and the four friends are accusedf murder Inspector Ian Rutledge is called in to investigate 親指の恋人[oyayubi no koibito] only to find a shocking lackf evidence and great resistance from everyone he talks to There are blustering fathers an evasive eyewitness ld grudges unexplained night walkers and a mysterious young lady who cannot be found And bodiesThe plot sounds good but the execution was clumsy There were too many red herrings that ultimately became insignificant details and the final resolution which should have been a major part than an after thought was rushed and too easy given all the initial misdirection In the beginning the writing was choppy and tentative though the pace and flow improved as the book progressed Also the timing f this book was unclear Going by Ian s thinking and behavior it was difficult to tell at first if it came in seuence with the rest Eureka Street of the seriesr was an insertion into the timeline There were mentions f Ian s past loves Jean and Meredith which gave an indication that there might be a happy future for him which is a good thing He didn t seem as troubled as he has in past books although he did have a token thought f ending it all at the river which seemed to me to be stuck in as an impulse h look here s a good place for a suicidal thought and Hamish made little appearance hereThis will be go n my keeper shelf but mostly because I have all the I nostri giorni con Anna othersI received this uncorrected proof in a Goodreads giveaway I used to read a lot mysteries than I do now when I ve gravitated towards thrillers and psychological suspense This book was a true mystery and a little too sedate for my taste It wasn t until two thirdsf the way through this book that the story actually became interesting to me I have not read anything else by this author but this the 18th book in the series worked fine as a standalone I suspect however that the author s fans will like it than I didIn this book Inspector Ian Rutledge who has recently returned to Scotland Yard after serving in the First World War is sent to Cornwall to investigate an attempted murder Rutledge works alone except for an imaginary consciencecompanion named Hamish I gather that Hamish is a standard presence in Ferrugem Americana other books in this series I found it decidedlydd but not too intrusive I guess fans Storie ciniche of the series like it I got no sensef who Rutledge is Party in the Blitz or why he has been the focusf so many booksRight from the start I thought that there were too many suspects and too many red herrings which padded the book and led to a plodding story In this case it was literally plodding as Rutledge trudged from house to house interviewing the same people The Russians Tender Lover (The Sisterhood, over andver again Sometimes he Fred Cress: Stages only attempted to interview them because if a suspectr sometimes their father The Nibelungenlied or a maid told him they didn t want to talk to him he just went away It may be how real police workperates but it doesn t make for exciting reading The solution to the case came Cleopatra's Palace: In Search of a Legend outf left field and didn t seem at all realistic to me but there was an exciting though unbelievable scene near the end Ultimately #I Found This A Pleasant #found this a pleasant but better for people who like their stories tame I received a free copy Enquanto a Inglaterra dorme of this book from the publisher

likable character Hamish adds something a little special and a little different to this series Looking forward to the next case Having read this entire series this is the Buried Secrets one I have enjoyed the least But I could not give it a 2 star because Ian is developing and there are portionsf this which were a progression to the Operación Primicia: el ataque de Montoneros que provocó el
