Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The 21st case for Detective Superintendent Charles Wycliffe of Cornwall involves the shy and retiring Simon Meagor, an antiquarian bookseller in Falmouth from whom Wycliffe buys books. Some years ago, Simon's testimony convicted George Barker of murder. Now Barker is dead, and his redheaded daughter, Morwenna, has blackmailed Simon into giving her a job as his shop assistant. When Morwenna is found dead in her car in a flooded quarry, Simon is an obvious suspect, but there were plenty of other complications in the young woman's life that could have led to violence. Wycliffe's team of series regulars, including DS Lucy Lane, pathologist Dr. Franks and DI Doug Kersey, helps him in the investigation, which sees many tangled plot threads tied up in a satisfactory ending. If Burley's characterizations are a bit rote and his prose a mite stiff, he never fails to provide a puzzle that will delight procedural purists?as does this one, stitched cleverly into its atmospheric Cornish backdrop.

From Booklist

Whenever a character comes back as many times as Chief Superintendent Wycliffe (21 appearances), a reviewer is faced with a dilemma: What can you say that you haven't already said? Reviewing Wycliffe and the House of Fear (1996), we called attention to Burley's "solid plotting, well-described and colorful setting, and intriguing characters." All that is equally true in this story of the disappearance and possible murder of redhead Morwenna Barker, last known to be working for a Falmouth bookseller whose testimony once sent her father to jail for manslaughter. Morwenna is much more than she seems in Burley's delightful teaser of a plot, and the Cornwall setting, with its remote valleys and rugged coasts, is as vividly described as ever. The characters, again led by the thoughtful and insightful Wycliffe, are thoroughly satisfying. Finally, we have no choice but to repeat ourselves by emphasizing one more time how pleasurable the familiar conventions of the genre can be in the hands of a writer as good as Burley.
