Savvy Verse & Wit recently read and reviewed The Confession by Charles Todd for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012. Here’s a sample:
While set after the war, it is clear that the battles have impacted Rutledge, and many of the men and families he encounters in the book as he unravels the murder mystery. Todd’s mystery resembles that of Sherlock Holmes, though Rutledge’s Watson is Hamish who died in the war. Deductions are made carefully from a series of innocuous events and statements from witness, neighbors, and others as Rutledge attempts to trace the heritage of the Russell family in Furnham. And of course, there are some red herrings.
