LA Kentabout this book: Broken Dove, #2 in the DI Treloar series, has child abduction, stalking and murder, mostly set in West Cornwall in the UK but with breath-holding action in London and Amsterdam. Psychologically disturbing crimes are faced by Treloar and his team, with one team member in particular being more effected than most, for good reason.
DI Treloar is Cornish, a bit of a maverick. Two children are kidnapped from a swimming pool near St Ives then he faces murder and stalking. Are the parents behaving as they should? How is the beautiful Amy caught up in these colliding stories? Who is the stalker, or there more than one?
In Broken Dove we get to know Treloar's family, especially his sisters, and more about his fascinating Spanish heritage which the family brings colourfully to life. Treloar's father, a Cornish man, got on a Brittany ferry boat in Plymouth one day in his youth, after a few beers, thinking he would go to France. He woke up in Santander in Northern Spain and the rest as we say…….you'll have to read about!

Excellent readI found Broken Dove hard to put down and it was fast moving. I enjoyed all the locations, Cornwall being the main one, especially the countryside between St Ives and Penzance. The map at the beginning was neat and set out the different places and houses mentioned which was useful.
I live near London and I thought the London settings were interesting and realistically described. I've not been to Amsterdam but it sounds interesting enough to make me want to go!
There were good twists in the main story threads - child abductions, stalking and killings - and seeing things through the minds of weird personalities was fascinating even if some of them are really not very nice.
Even though Broken Dove is centred on Cornwall I liked the different places bought into it, the variety of crimes being faced at the same time, which must happen in real life and the fact that you get to know the characters in the series better.
I liked the way that two stories are bought together and the mix of personalities. I especially liked Treloar's sisters who have got more than a bit of life in them - the Spanish side and the Cornish side - fun! All in all a really enjoyable and quite interesting read.
