The Beales are an oddity in the village: Roman Catholic in a mostly Methodist world, rich, apparently tightly knit and aloof from the villagers. When the army gun of one of the family members is stolen, it isn’t long before a villager is dead, and the only thing that Chief Superintendent Charles Wycliffe is sure of is that somehow, the Beales are involved…."Wycliffe and the Beales" is the 11th in the long-running series by Cornishman W. J. Burley, although it isn’t necessary to have read the previous volumes to enjoy this one. There’s a nice mixture of old with new here, for example having young girls dancing around a maypole on May Day while cars drive by, and there’s a well-constructed plot and well-clued mystery. My favourite parts of the Wycliffe series, however, include the main character himself, who is of the intuitive-leap school of detectives, and the vistas of Cornwall, where I lived as a child. One doesn’t need that connection to enjoy this series, however, just bring your interest in police procedurals! Recommended.

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.

HASH(0x9f8a6420) 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.
