A Fatal Lie by Charles Todd
"4-*
Unlike others, I didn’t mind the shift to Simon Vance as the voice for Rutledge: if we can’t have Simon Prebble, Simon Vance is good too.
As per usual, the mystery took us with Inspector Rutledge all over the U.K. The topic for Rutledge’s latest ca" Read more of this review »

Quotes by Charles Todd  (?)

“That's the point of working with one's hands, you see. It gives the mind something else to do besides worry.”
Charles Todd, A Duty to the Dead

“I decided to become a policeman to speak for the dead. They have no one else, you see. Somewhere there’s always proof of what happened, some piece of evidence that will obtain a conviction. It’s important for the guilty to be brought to justice, I think. Without justice, there’s chaos.”
Charles Todd, A Long Shadow

“Tell me something. Why is everyone so determined to believe Wilton is innocent?"

Surprised, Davies said, "He's a war hero isn't he? Admired by the King and a friend of the Prince of Wales. He's visited Sandringham, been received by Queen Mary herself! A man like that doesn’t go around killing people!"

With a wry downturn of his lips, Rutledge silently asked, How did he win his medals, you fool, if not by being so very damned good at killing?”
Charles Todd, A Test of Wills
