He is often genuinely "bad", but his difference in approach from his contemporaries at least partly seems to reflect Fletcher's emergence from a different tradition.
Series by cover
Fletcher became famous for his The Middle Temple Murder This novel is an expansion of a plot Fletcher used earlier in the short story, "The Contents of the Coffin", included in his collection, The Adventures of Archer Dawe Sleuth-Hound. The plot is clever. I much prefer the short story version to the novel.
In general I have not enjoyed Fletcher's mystery novels. His short stories are often much better. The story opens with a prisoner being sentenced by a judge, a scene that seemed to fascinate Fletcher, who included it in several tales. One can find similar courtroom scenes in E. Hornung's The Shadow of the Rope Archer Dawe is an elderly amateur detective who works closely with Scotland Yard. Both he and the Yard detectives rely closely on Fletcher's two favorite techniques: tracking, and disguising oneself in the clothes of the upper classes.
Although Dawe is a good guy, his approach here is very similar to those of Rogues.
This draws together two of Fletcher's ongoing themes: impersonation of the powerful, and judges. Another perennial Fletcher subject in this tale: a family whose grown male members all bear a striking resemblance to each other. This recalls the twin brothers in "From Behind The Barrier". Both "The Contents of the Coffin" and "From Behind The Barrier" include paired hotel rooms, directly across the corridor from each other.
Murder Ninth Baronet by Fletcher
In one the hero has his room; in the other a crime is or has taken place. There are other architectural motifs in Fletcher as well. Northern English buildings in Fletcher often include both offices, serving as places of business, and adjoining bedrooms. I have no idea whether this was a typical feature of the region's architecture, or whether it is rather something that comes from Fletcher's storytelling imagination.
It tends to give an unusual flavor to the stories. A scene that starts out in an office can suddenly move into a bedroom. Together with all the disguise in the tales, it can give the stories a surrealist flavor. Fletcher lived in Yorkshire, wrote books about its history, and the area often pops up in his fiction.
