Book in the Wycliffe Series).

A young girl is found dead in a house on Stanley Street... but it's just the start of a complex puzzle which Wycliffe must unravel.

A dubious cul-de-sac just off the busy main road in a sprawling West Country port, Stanley Street is definitely not a salubrious place. And the victim, found naked and strangled in her bed is, appropriately enough, a prostitute.

The local inspector believes it is just another sex crime, but Chief Superintendent Wycliffe is not convinced. For the victim, Lily Painter, is the kind of girl who likes Beethoven and has lots of 'O' and 'A' levels to her name - not the usual sort of prostitute at all. And when Wycliffe goes digging into her background, he comes up with plenty of surprises, not least a shadowy connection with property speculators and drug smugglers.

But it takes a dangerous arson attack and a second murder before the solution to this complex and fast-moving puzzle can be found...

Wycliffe was on his own in this one. The growth of his character from book to book helps with solving each case. The evil of the protagonist is shown throughout the story but only sheeted home at the end. I feel more confident that Wycliffe is there. I enjoyed the read and have revisited to enjoy it again. The badie was painted completely unfeeling. I am disappointed I did not know the victim. Her life was tragically cut short.

A prostitute is found dead in a flat on Stanley Street and Wycliffe has to investigate. He soon finds layers upon layers of secrets and few people involved are what they seem to be. It is difficult to say very much more about the plot without giving half of it away. Suffice it to say that it is intricate enough to keep most readers guessing until close to the end.

I enjoy this author's writing style and I like Wycliffe as a character. He is happily married to Helen and has two nearly adult children. He has a reputation for eccentricity at work and for not wanting to discuss the case he's working on because it disrupts his thought processes. He likes to work on his own following up his own hunches but knows he has to work with other people as well.

The other characters in this story are well drawn though not always likeable - `Lily Painter' - the victim, Jarvis the antiquarian book seller and his unpleasant assistant and the architect Paul Morris. This is an interesting story about the seamier side of life which go on behind the facade of respectability.
