My current interest is in the postwar years of the 20's with the struggle of soldiers trying to return to their 'normal' lives after four years of the horror of mud and death in the trenches of Northern France.
Rutledge with his struggle to stay sane and functional is a poignant and iconic figure, he struggles and survives. The detection side of the story is very well done with plenty of odd twists and turns.
This was an experience I am happy to have had,not only a good mystery but a truly powerful look at the human condition.
An enjoyable and well-written historical mystery with its interesting main character
