Read full description of the books The Confession: An Inspector Ian Rutledge Mystery:I have been with this series from the beginning, anticipating each new release, but if you are jumping in, with this as your first book, you'd have to wonder what Detective Inspector Ian Rutledge is really like because Charles Todd doesn't show you, and this Ian Rutledge is totally lacking in personality, plodding along as he tries to solve the murder. The characters are really flat and as dreary as his setting. Because we know so little about the victim, we really don't care that he's dead.
I read in an interview that Charles Todd contemplated dropping Hamish, Rutledge's conscience, but that his suggestion was met with objections from his (actually mother and son's) fans. Even so, I think he should do it. What Hamish is whispering in the detective's ear are things that a good detective can figure out on his own, and the Scottish dialog is getting old.
I'd love to see Todd write prequels to the series, so that we can meet Rutledge before he suffered psychological trauma in The Great War. I hate to say it, but the post-war Rutledge series has run its course. P.S. If it hasn't, get Ian a girlfriend, please!
