The Inspector Treloar Mysteries



The Treloar mysteries feature Detective Inspector Félipe Treloar of Devon & Cornwall Police and his team working on serious crimes in Cornwall.

The first in the series, Rogue Flamingo, introduces the team as they investigate a series of brutal slayings in the sleepy south Cornwall fishing village of Porthaven where the population and suspect pool are swollen by a number of mysterious summer visitors.

In Broken Dove, the second in the Treloar series, two young girls are abducted from a swimming pool in St Ives. Meanwhile an uninvited guest arrives at Treloar's May Day party in the wilds of west Cornwall. The story goes on to explore twisted family dynamics, obsession and madness.

Silent Gull, the third book, sees a culture clash between the ancient Cornish Spargo clan and the Hollywood superstar incomer Jackson Power with his Fowey based therapeutic centre The Valley of the Tides, home to troubled residents and dubious staff alike. When a body is found floating in the river there are suspects aplenty but they have powerful protectors.

The fourth in the series, Sad Pelican, set in Padstow, will be published in November 2017.
