Wycliffe and the Beales Wycliffe 11 by W. A mysterious death And Chief Superintendent Wycliffe has one of his most complex cases to date. The Beales are an odd, reclusive family living in Ashill House, on the edge of Dartmoor: old Simon has withdrawn from active life; Nicholas and Gertrude confine themselves respectively to war games and the bottle; young E A mysterious death The Beales are an odd, reclusive family living in Ashill House, on the edge of Dartmoor: old Simon has withdrawn from active life; Nicholas and Gertrude confine themselves respectively to war games and the bottle; young Edward takes long painting expeditions on the moor.

Only Frank Vicary, Gertrude's husband, is able to run the family business with enough drive to compensate for the failings of the others. When there is a murder in the village, there seems no reason to connect it with the Beales. But once Chief Superintendent Wycliffe is on the case, his investigation uncovers far more than he - or the Beales - anticipated Get A Copy.

Showing Rating details. More filters. Sort order. Jul 10, Susan rated it liked it Shelves: mystery-england. An odd-jobs man is murdered in a quiet English village, and Inspector Wycliffe, who comes from a small village himself, can't make the pieces come together. Then there's a second death, obviously linked to the first, as both are to the local family of gentry, the Beales.

Psychologically oriented police procedural from back before many of our modern forensic discoveries. Jul 20, Alison C rated it liked it. The Beales are an oddity in the village: Roman Catholic in a mostly Methodist world, rich, apparently tightly knit and aloof from the villagers. 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. Jun 11, Bev Taylor rated it really liked it. Jul 20, Lyn Elliott rated it really liked it Shelves: crime. Now that I've read five of Burley's Wycliffe novels, I can see that he taps into different aspects of society in Cornwall as well as using locations on the moors and the coast.

The rain and welcoming pubs are always present. In this book, class divisions and misplaced family pride are at the centre of the skillfully constructed plot. Wycliffe himself remains dour and spends a lot of time walking and thinking on his own. Like any good mystery protagonist, Cadfael is exceptionally skilled at reading people and drawing the right conclusions.

The Cadfael series is based on the novels of Edith Pargeter writing under the pen name of Ellis Peters.

It's terribly sad they only made three series of this weird and wonderful show, but the good news is that the novels have been going strong for over 30 years now.

After watching the show, it's delightful to read the books and find all kinds of little details about the world that didn't make it into the show. In addition to the single volumes listed below, Amazon also offers an ebook package of all 33 Hamish MacBeth books here. You can also purchase the complete DVD box set here. Wycliffe is a Cornwall-based detective series inspired by the novels of W. Protagonist DS Wycliffe is a quiet and thoughtful detective who enjoys playing jazz piano and spending time with his family when not being dragged all over Cornwall by various investigations.

The only downside to the show is that it was filmed before modern camera technology became what it is. More vivid HD footage would definitely enhance the already impressive scenery. Though author Burley got a relatively late start on his writing career publishing his first novel at 51 , he was prolific and continued writing until his death. In doing this I thought I might help fill a gap that was left in the market by the gradual disappearance of the traditional whodunnit.

You can stream all five series of Wycliffe with a BritBox subscription.

Fans of the dark and atmospheric detective series Vera will be pleased to know there are 8 novels in the series with more continuing to come out every so often. Vera is the creation of Ann Cleeves, who has also created another series that might be familiar — the Shetland Island Mysteries now a TV show, Shetland. Amazingly, the tone of the show and movie manage to be quite similar despite the different mediums.
