    1. Review from cornishlit.wordpress/I’m very much enjoying listening to the current BBC radio series Foreign Bodies which charts the history of twentieth century Europe through its fictional detectives. This is social history explored through literary device and it works well but it also chimes with a conviction that I’ve long held: that W.J. Burley’s books are one of the more authentic Cornish voices in modern fiction. The press release accompanying the series offered this explanation for it [...]

    2. Enjoyed the character development and story line. Sometimes the storyline in this series can seem slow, but I don't mind that. I do enjoy the series. The Cornish estate, small village and characters added a nice flavor - Enjoyed.

    3. Chief Superintendent Charles Wycliffe walks about a lot, make that, he walks about quite a lot, an extraordinary amount, a nearly unbelievable amount fact, the only time during the murder investigation that he's in an auto is when a constable is sent to pluck him from a fierce rainstorm, during which he is walking about with a plastic bag held over his head. While he's walking, he is also thinking, mulling over the lies and truths people have told him, putting pieces of the puzzle together in va [...]

    4. Not a good one by any stretch of the imagination. You get the usual short-comings; it groans with inbuilt prejudices and outdated opinions*, the minor characters are from amateur dramatics, it's riddled with over-used similes. The things you can depend on in a Wycliffe are absent; the setting doesn't work, the police procedures are inept (there are so few possible suspects and none of them are suspected), the all important motive is from the crime writer's bag of easy options and the star of the [...]

    5. Chief Superintendent Wycliffe is called to a village near Truro when a dead man, at first thought to have died by suicide, is determined to have been murdered instead. Wycliffe comes into contact with Lord and Bottrell, the local aristocrats for whom the dead man had worked, and the Landers who have served the Bottrells as lawyers for generations. But all these families have secrets to conceal, and Wycliffe must somehow figure out the truth of it all…. I quite enjoyed this novel, the 17th in t [...]

    6. This is the first of Burley's inspector Wycliffe series that I have read and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. Places are evoked skillfully, characters distinctly developed and the plot is original. These combined to keep me connected all the way through without taking short cuts, which I frequently do with formulaic books.I found this by chance in a second hand book shop in Cornwall and will seek out more. It's great to come across a new good writer in the crime genre.

    7. I liked this book. However, I guessed correctly 'who did it', admittedly for the wrong reasons! I look forward to finding more of Mr Burley's books. Only 225 pages, probably around 60,00 words, so a quick read. Yes I can recommend this.
