Was he killed because he was getting too close to the truth? Wesley and his boss Gerry Heffernan suddenly find they have more than enough work to keep them busy with things such as a spate of thefts at places which hold study courses for adults as well as the murder. Of course this is not the first murder they will have to investigate before they finally work out the truth.
This is quite a dark story both in regards to the modern murders and the archaeological investigation of the early settlers in the USA. There are also disturbing tensions surfacing between Wesley and Pam now that they have two children and the bulk of the childcare falls on Pam even though she has a full time job. Relationships between the police characters are not at their best either with Steve Carstairs finding himself in a sticky situation and Rachel struggling to control her feeling for Wesley.
This is an interesting story with many layers and nuances. The characters are developing well and are believable. The interaction between the historical mystery and the present day ones are well done and fir together well. I recommend this series to anyone who likes their crime stories to be a little different.
