When a traveling strong man who had been at the priest's autumn fair is arrested, Rutledge thinks it's too convenient, and must delve into the past to find the truth. The timing and pacing in this marvelous series are superb, Rutledge - with his tortured war experiences dominating his present life - is a compelling hero. And the villain in this case is exceptionally chilling. It's a 5, in a series you could spend an entire season enjoying.
