Inspector Félipe Treloar


Detective Inspector Félipe Treloar is the Senior Investigating Officer of the team. With his Cornish-Spanish parentage, farming background and blonde blue eyed good looks he is a darling of the media and appreciated by the Chief Constable. However his maverick nature and scant regard for procedure can get him into trouble. And like all members of his family - he loves cats.


Samantha Scott

Detective Sergeant Samantha Scott is a fast-track History graduate and second in command in D I Treloar’s team. She admires his ability to make connections that other miss and his cavalier attitude towards some senior officers and the rules. She loves exotic travel. We first meet her on Porthaven beach at the start of Rogue Flamingo.

Ochre Pengelly


Ochre Pengelly is a Treloar family friend, daughter of an old Cornish family living at Radgell, high on the carn west of Zennor. She is a famous artist and author, an eccentric personality with scant regard for social niceties and a huge heart. This beach tree is the prototype for the giant Christmas tree which stands in the hall of The Valley of The Tides in Silent Gull. She first appears at the Treloar May Day party in Broken Dove.


Benedict Fitzroy

DCI Benedict Fitzroy is a fellow maverick. A member of a shadowy law enforcement agency, former Metropolitan police officer, formerly with Europol, he has a shady military background and a track record of spectacular successes. He also has a beloved Morris Minor Traveller named Emily and a serious weakness for the ladies. He first appears in Broken Dove.
