Summary

Summary

"Despite being busy with a new exhibition, artist Rose Trevelyan is always there to offer her friends support if they need her; lately, it seems as though everyone has a problem to share. There's Doreen who is worried about how her neighbour, Nathan Brown, is coping after his mother's death; Eva who is suspicious about her boyfriend's whereabouts; and Barry, who is concerned about his new employee. On top of that, Rose's star pupil Joyce is fretting about her teenage daughter and her friends." "Meanwhile, Rose's sometime boyfriend DI Jack Pearce is investigating a series of burglaries and a spate of vicious attacks on young women in the area. As secrets are shared and the crimes become more serious, should Rose betray her friend's confidences or will Jack just accuse her of interfering?" "And as Rose finds herself being drawn deeper into the problems of her friends she is suddenly reminded that sometimes she too needs a shoulder to cry on."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Fans of more traditional Anglophilic fare will welcome Jane Bolitho's Killed in Cornwall, the author's sixth novel to feature artist Rose Trevelyan (Framed in Cornwall, etc.). Rose's occasional boyfriend, DI Jack Pearce, investigates a series of burglaries and attacks on young women, but as in previous books the mystery-solving takes second place to Bolitho's sensitive portrayal of the people of Cornwall.
