Book Description

July 1 1988
Deep in Hound of the Baskervilles country lies Washford, a village that looks as if it has grown out of the moor itself. Close by is Ashill House, home of the Beales, an odd and reclusive family. Old Simon has withdrawn from active life, Nicholas and Gertrude confine themselves to war games and the bottle, young Edward paints on the moor. Only Gertrude’s husband, Frank, has enough drive to maintain the family business. When the village lay-about is murdered, there’s no reason to connect the crime with the Beales—until Wycliffe goes in search of skeletons.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kept Me Guessing Dec 2 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's a book I had wanted to get my hands on, still early in Wycliffe's career, it was puzzling because you knew almost from the start the murder was an inside job but as it turned out it was almost the last person I suspected. I like a cozy English mystery and this was one of them. The character of Wycliffe has grown over the years and it was fun to meet his early personna and some of his cohorts who are still around in later works. I think anyone who likes a puzzle type of myster without a lot of gore and foul language would love this. Not deep, rather a puzzle you can pick up for a day and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Those mysterious Beales March 23 2012
By Mr. D. Beale - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The reason I bought the book was because it was about the Beale clan. I wanted to see what my fictional family had gotten up to, so I bought the book from Amazon.com as Amazon.co.uk would not sell it to me in Australia. That hurdle being overcome, and having received my copy from America, I found it a very difficult book to put down. The plot was not insignificant, but kept happening right on to the end, and kept me wondering if Wycliffe really had a handle on the crime. Having never read a novel by W.J.Burley before, this book gave me a good introduction into the ability of the Author, and he rates fairly high in good solid criminal mysteries. A good read.
