Wycliffe and Death in a Salubrious Place

Wycliffe and Death in a Salubrious Place

On the beautiful, tranquil Scilly Isles, a brutal murder is uncovered…

There was no doubt at all that the girl was dead. The front of her skull and her facial bones had been splintered like the cracked shell of an egg. What made it even more shocking was the setting of the murder – an idyllic corner of the Scilly Isles where violent crime was almost unknown.

Angry and distressed, the villagers instinctively turn against the only stranger in their midst, the famous pop star and teenage idol Vince Peters. But Superintendent Wycliffe is not so sure. Slowly, methodically, he begins to dig beneath the calm surface of the community – and soon uncovers a violent undercurrent of fear and guilt…
