Proof of Guilt was worth the wait. Inspector Rutledge mysteries are some of the most entertaining mystery writings that I have read, or listened to. Simon Prebble's narration of Charles Todd seems to evoke the time period and enhances the listening flow. The one aspect of this book that held my attention was the way in which Ian Rutledge's character has emerged from the severely tormented detective of the early novels, into the more interesting persona of the professional detective, with only the hint of the troubled ghost of Hamish haunting him. Ian Rutledge is a proven commodity and Charles Todd is still keeping him fresh. A very good listen.
Yes, The information and first hand account details are drawn from correspondance and diaries of the men involved.
The reaction of the Navy to the attack on Pearl Harbor was riveting.
The inflection of voice, tone and emphasis on important details was evident.
No, just a reminder of the state of affairs in the US Navy at the turn of the 20th century and the fortune to have had Annapolis develop some of the brightest minds of that time.
Narration was good, but I listen to audio books based on convenience. Print versions are always better.
Holmes, for obvious reason
Watson, I always thought his would be the most objective view
