4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing, 19 Jan. 2012

This review is from: Wycliffe and the Winsor Blue (Kindle Edition)
Francis Garland, is found shot dead in the street and Wycliffe is called in to investigate. He soon discovers that the victim's father, Edwin, died of a heart attack a few days before and starts to wonder whether or not he was murdered too. There is a complex network of relationships and rivalries going on around the Garland family and Edwin Garland's will only adds to the confusion with its cryptic comments attached to some legacies.

This is perhaps one of the slowest mysteries in the series and I found my attention wandering at times. I think possibly I had too many distractions while I was reading it and didn't really absorb some of the nuances of the story. That said it is still a mystery worth reading and it was quite a way into the book before I thought I'd worked out what was going on and who committed the murder. Wycliffe feels he is being slow too and maybe chasing clues which don't need chasing.

If this is the first Wycliffe story you have read and it didn't grab your attention then I would suggest reading one of the others such as Wycliffe and the Quiet Virgin which is faster paced.
