"Rhodes makes up for her limited canvas with evocative descriptions of the rugged landscape"

Rhodes’s Hell Bay series of crime novels is set in the Isles of Scilly, where her engaging detective, DI Ben Kitto, finds himself policing people he grew up with. Pulpit Rock begins dramatically with a woman’s body, incongruously dressed in a bridal gown, dangling from a well-known landmark. Rhodes makes up for her limited canvas with evocative descriptions of the rugged landscape, while the fact that Kitto has to stop people leaving the islands provides a claustrophobic background to his investigation.
