Write Review

Rated 0

Cornwall, Fiction, Crime & mystery, Classic crime, Thriller / suspense

Two violent deaths shatter a small community. And to solve the case, Wycliffe must untangle a complex network of secrecy within the quiet of Paul's Court . . .

Paul's Court is a quiet corner in the heart of the city; an oasis of peace and safety until the night when two of its inhabitants meet violent deaths. Old Willy Goppel, a German who specialises in making period dolls' houses, is found hanging from a beam in his home; and 15 year old Yvette Cole, with a wild reputation, is strangled and thrown half naked over the churchyard hedge.
Wycliffe has the aid of a local detective, Kersey, but even in co-operation they find this a difficult case to crack. Was Willy's death really a suicide? Or could it be that the two deaths are connected?
