Excellent mystery!

This is, I think, the 15th book in the series about the British detective Ian Rutledge, but it's the first one I have read. Having finished it, I'm sorry that I didn't get into this series a long time ago, for if the rest of the books are as good as this one, I've certainly missed some really good mystery writing.

The plot begins with the finding of a body in the middle of a London street, apparently victim of a hit and run, but there is no identification on the corpse, only an unusual pocket watch. Also, it seems as if the accident did not occur where the body wads found, but brought there from some other place.

Inspector Rutledge is given the task of solving this murder, and he finds that there are many avenues to pursue, and many people to examine, most of whom have at least a tenuous connection to the accident, and perhaps to another death. The author keeps giving the readers clues indicating the guilt of one or the other of the characters, and it is difficult for Rutledge to sort out everything and ultimately get to the truth..

Everything falls into place at the end, with a satisfying conclusion, and I'm going to make sure that I don't pass up any more of these Ian Rutledge books!
