Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge discovers that the victim was universally despised in Cambury--even the victim's wife and the town's police inspector are suspect. And yet in London circles, the man was highly regarded. What triggered his death? Rutledge doggedly follows a well-concealed trail that finally leads him to the one person who knows the whole truth. But it's too late to stop a spreading evil and a vicious settling of scores. As the seasoned inspector comes to understand the larger picture, he realizes he may not be able to prove what he suspects. In spite of his skill, this may be the only case in which Rutledge fails to get his man.

More of the same .... which is to say, well-written, with interesting and well-drawn characters, evocative locations (especially the parts set on the Scilly Isles). I still find the inclusion (or intrusion) of Hamish a little annoying, but the overall writing is reason enough to keep reading the series. This one has a plausible motive (unlike a few earlier entries), and as usual some of the characters act in ways you would prefer they didn't. But that's life.

An excellent mystery with a complex and surprising ending.
