..... I have been able to give it a 5* rating. I stayed up late to finish Sad Pelican by LA Kent. It is a gripping story based in N. Cornwall of a series of bodies found staged in a way that depicts Cornish legends and also make it look as if DI Treloar is connected with them. He is suspended and gathers friends to help him solve the murders. The people and places depicted are realistic and draw you in. Sandy P.
