Scotland Yard is asked to review the case.However, Inspector Ian Rutledge is not the first Inspector to reach the village. Following in the shoes of a dead man, he is told the case is all but closed. Even as it takes an unexpected personal turn, Rutledge will require all his skill to deal with the incensed families of the accused, the grieving parents of the victim, and local police eager to see these four women sent to the infamous Bodmin Gaol. Then why hasn't the killing stopped?With no shred of evidence to clear the accused, Rutledge must plunge deep into the darkest secrets of a wild, beautiful and dangerous place if he is to find a killer who may--or may not--hold the key to their fate.

"Shred of Evidence" moves forward in fits and starts. The first third, with the setting of four young women accused of causing the death of a young man in a boating accident in a Cornwall village, is interminable. I seriously thought the rest of the book was going to continue in this vein, and then the plot and the characters picked up a bit. But as the book continued, the plot just got more and more difficult to follow and more improbable to boot. The ending was just there and asked more questions than it answered.
When I say I have read and enjoyed and appreciated all the previous "Rutledge" books, you can believe me. That's why I was so disappointed that this book was so bad. I don't know if the "Charles Todd" writing duo has run out of energy or interest in their character, but I know I will carefully read the reviews of their next book before buying it.
Four young women were having an idle paddle on the river when they saw someone waving at them and trying to get their attention. One of the women wanted to ignore him because she thought he just wanted to flirt with them. When it became obvious he was in serious trouble the women tried to rescue him from the water. A witness on shore managed to swim to the boat, helped get the drowning man into the boat, but then accused all four women of trying to murder the man. When Rutledge arrives from London to investigate for Scotland Yard he finds that one of the women is Kate Gordon, the cousin of Jean Gordon the woman he was engaged to marry in1914. Rutledge had vowed never to return to Cornwall because of all the tragedy he associates with it. Now he's about to have to relive the past as well as deal with this case.
I loved the way the authors changed up the plotting of this case and moved it away from being the standard plot of a mystery novel. This one had tangles of story lines which kept intersecting and causing confusion as to what was happening in the case Rutledge had been sent down to investigate. Unknown to anyone involved in the death of the man in the boat, Harry Saunders, other factors were taking place in the background which took skillful handling by the authors to keep camouflaged while the general investigation was carried out. I also enjoyed watching the dilemma Rutledge was faced with in trying to separate out whom among the four women might have had intent to injure Harry Saunders. All kinds of social pressures were brought about because of the levels of society represented by those involved and in 1920 those societal levels still played a huge part in how suspects were dealt with, but the great war had gone a long way toward beginning to level those differences so Scotland Yard inspectors had a very narrow line to tread.
I thought this was an exciting novel to read from the standpoint of watching the Charles Todd team go in unexpected directions. It worked wonderfully for me and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
This novel was a little different then the others before it in that the plot is simpler but involves two cases at the same time which takes getting used to. Still, Ian Rutledge is at his best, a new character ( female ) has been introduced with the possibility of further connecting in future books, and you experience ( even in reading ) an England that you knew existed for a little while before the next war. Enjoy.
