Suspense is the hallmark of the new Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge mystery. A trio of murders of Great War survivors in rural Sussex is investigated by Rutledge, who continues to be haunted by horrific WWI experiences and the imaginary voice of his ethereal comrade, Hamish. Simon Prebble's husky performance infuses the ideal level of Rutledge melancholy while underscoring the period detail of the bygone era. He is especially skilled at vocalizing the throaty timbre of the more mature characters while softening women's tones without changing pitch. He performs accents expertly, especially that of the Scottish Hamish. However, Prebble's vocal volume sometimes drops sharply as characters speak softly or whisper, and some words are lost. Soon Rutledge is plagued by more deaths, few clues, and pressures that threaten his job, his reputation, and his life. A.W. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2011]
