A guy is dying, he is not Catholic - why does he ask for a priest, in addition to his vicar? Then the priest is murdered in his study. But the local police believe it was a burglary. And pick up a Strong Man. The bishop asks for someone from Scotland Yard to look in, our man Rutledge. He doesn't believe it was a burglary.

Rutledge subsequently finds out that the priest was obsessed with the sinking of the Titanic seven years before. And there is a survivo
At some point he has to lose the Scotsman in his head. It gets old, which is too bad because I just bought the whole series.
