Helen Pascoe

DI Helen Pascoe - a character from the Pieter van Es thriller series

Helen Pascoe is a bright, pretty thirty something. She grew up in Cornwall on her parents farm just outside Portreath and returned to live in St Agnes when she joined the Royal Cornwall Constabulary after university. Quickly rising through the ranks, she is now a Detective Inspector with the local CID unit based at force headquarters near Truro.

Helen lives on her own in a small cottage with her cat Jemima. She is single, although she was engaged for a few months to Tom just after she finished her university course. Publicly she says she is happy living on her own.

Her interests are listening to music, keeping fit and gardening.
