LA Kentabout this book: Fowey is such a beautiful location in Cornwall, on the banks of the Fowey estuary, that it simply cries out for a murder mystery! After all it is where Daphne Du Maurier, Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch and Kenneth Graham did most of their writing so why not!
Silent Gull continues the evolving story of Detective Inspector Felipe Treloar and his family, his 'presumed drowned' father in particular, as well as Treloar's evolving serious crime team members.
Key characters in Silent Gull include Harry Forrester, a burnt out Michelin star chef who had a superb restaurant in Brighton before becoming a resident of The Valley of The Tides for recuperation and therapy, the son of a prominent media mogul and the daughter of an MP who are also at The Valley of The Tides for therapy and recovery.
Harry Forrester brings his well tried and trusted recipes and approach to cooking to readers through his cooking therapy sessions for residents and guests at The Valley of The Tides.
The Valley of The Tides was created by Hollywood superstar, Jackson Powers, who purchased and renovated an old property on the banks of the Fowey Estuary, and renamed it The Valley of The Tides, to help other parents avoid the life crushing event of the death of a child, as he did, from drug addiction. Other addictions are treated too by the team of professional staff.
A child's body is found in the water close to The Valley of The Tides which brings Treloar to the scene, and he is soon facing organised crime bosses, people trafficking and child kidnap.
Throughout, Treloar is dealing with issues around his own father.
Silent Gull is set just before Christmas, and brings interesting insight to the reality of pre Christmas times in a well known and popular Cornish town.
