    May 1977 and a lone stranger walking the coast path stumbles into a beach chalet amid the sand dunes in St Ives Bay asking for a glass of water Six school friends are using the chalet for the weekend and, against their better judgement, they offer him a meal before he moves on However, once the meal is over it is dark and they very generously offer him the sofa on which to spend the night He takes up the offer.Fifteen years later a dog walker comes across the partially buried body of a naked man [...]

    The third wycliffe that I have read A good little detective story with loads of local colour, good characters and an interesting plot.

    The body of a young man missing for 15 years is uncovered in local dunes by unusually strong winds it doesn t take Wycliffe long to find out that half a dozen teenagers were having a sleepover at a nearby cottage at the time of the disappearance, but 15 years on, those teens are now pillars of society to one degree or another And none of them is anxious to stir up old memories As with all the books in this series this is the 19th , Wycliffe and the Dunes Mystery centers on Wycliffe s character a [...]

    Fifteen years ago, the son of a prominent MP disappeared whilst on a coastal walking holiday after his release from a psychiatric hospital The police had assumed suicide Now his body has been found buried in the sand dunes, and it s clear his father was right all along the young man had been murdered return return A flashback prologue makes it clear to the reader from the start that a group of six teenagers having an illicit weekend were the last people to see Cochrane Wilder alive The fun in th [...]

    I was familiar with the Wycliffe television series and picked this novel up from a second hand book stall a few years back but have never read it The title is 19 in the Wycliffe series which eventually had 22 titles, none of which I have read.Wycliffe, now a Detective Chief Superintendent, is approaching the end of his career, and is finding that it takes a lot to get him enthusiastic He rarely gets to participate hands on in an investigation but there is something about this case that he finds [...]

    Like many other Wycliffe novels this one hinges on events that happened in the distant past Unlike many others this one does not focus on familial or community tensions, eschewing the tension of that set up for an altogether different kind of psychodrama The book opens with the discovery of a body in the Gwithian towans and we get to see the fallout of that discovery as it awakens old wounds in a group of shool day friends who are, for the most part, no longer on speaking terms.That discovery pr [...]

    A solid, enjoyable, old fashioned murder mystery set on the Cornish coast Although it was published in the early 90s, it has the feel of an earlier era Burley was pretty prolific and there was a TV series based on this series in the mid 90s, but I don t think he is much read any I picked this up at a library book sale and will be keeping my eyes open for .

    After this book, there are only two in this series that I haven t read yet I liked this one Most of the later ones, where Wycliffe is based on the coast have been much better than some of the earlier ones This is good, standard Wycliffe though the author spends a bit less time on Wycliffe s roundabout way to the puzzle solution and time on the characters in this one.

    This is a fairly standard who dunnit except we broadly know who did it from the beginning Therefore, there isn t much mystery or tension developed I would rate this fairly low amongst all the English crime writing I ve read.

    Another Wycliffe mystery that has its roots in the past Set in Hayle and St Ives this story has a rather contrived ending but is full of charm and local colour As previously mentioned Charlie Wycliffe is not the most interesting of detectives.

    Better than I remembered, don t know why I disliked it so much the first time, it s very much like most of the other Wycliffe s, and of course I like them

    3.5 for this Wycliffe This is my detective sorbet and I ll be sorry to reach the end of the series There is something very settling about these books, yet too dry to be beloved cosies

    i have enjoyed the tv series on mystery, then someone told me about the books this is the first i have tried and i like the series am going to look for another now.

    Not the best mystery I ve read but enough of a page turner to be entertaining The descriptions of the various places made them sound interesting.

    Read while on a 13 hour flight It was alright but but I will only buy anther Wycliffe book second hand.

    I enjoyed this one It doesn t really follow the traditional format as you know who did the murder from the outset, but it does take Wycliffe a while to prove it.
