Wycliffe And The Redhead Paperback



The discovery of a body in a quarry creates a baffling case for Detective Superintendent WycliffeSimon Meagor was a lonely middle-aged man.

With a broken marriage behind him, his life was centred on his antiquarian bookshop.

In his past was the memory of a murder trial where his evidence had resulted in the conviction of a man who had subsequently killed himself.

Now, to his horror, the daughter of that man was applying for a job in his shop and, almost mesmerised by her, Simon found he was agreeing to her employment.

Cleverly, over a period of time, Morwenna manipulated herself into his work, his life, and finally into his flat above the shop. And then she disappeared. When her body was discovered in a flooded quarry, at first suicide was considered.

Morwenna was suffering from a fatal disease. But everything pointed to murder and, inevitably, suspicion fell on Simon Meagor.

Wycliffe became increasingly disturbed by a case which grew more and more complicated as he explored many dark and murky secrets from the past.
