a beguiling author who interweaves past and present. Like its predecessor, the book works well on both levels, detective fiction with a historical twist...fans will love it., moody mystery...a splendid piece of whodunnit, and when?, a satisfying and enjoyable read

A body is pulled out of the sea by the team led by archaeologist, Neil Watson, who is investigating the wreck of a ship. The body is modern. But in the meantime a skeleton is discovered in a bricked up room in a nearby country house when builders are converting it to a hotel and leisure complex. But that is not the end of the story and there are many more twists and turns before Wesley Peterson and Gerry Heffernan finally unravel all the crimes involved.

This is one of the best books in this series of the ones I've read so far and the connections between all the various crimes are ingenious. It kept me guessing until almost the last few pages. The historical background involving the wreckers who lured the ships onto the rocky coast in order to plunder them is intriguing. Neil Watson is not so much in evidence in this book as more of it is devoted to the modern crimes involved.

All in all this is an excellent read and I read about half of it at a sitting because I had to know what happened.

Before I start this review I must say I am a big fan of the Kate Ellis Wesley Peterson series, so I am probably a bit biased; however I thought this book was particularly good. I liked the twists at the end and thought the rationale behind the killing both original and very clever. Would highly recommend (although you may want to read the first six before hand).

The first sentence is captivating, then for me it starts to drag. The author uses language very well. However, I found this book had too much to keep track of, too many people to keep track off, to many stories and far too much jumping about. I just got fed up. Couldn't even finish the book.

Based on the tales of the notorious ship wreckers on the Devon coast, this Kate Ellis crime story blends dark deeds of the 18th century with the
present day discovery of a female skeleton in a secret room in an old mansion being renovated. Wesley Peterson makes a sympathetic detective as a West Indian trying to blend in with the locals.

Kate ellis has never failed to entertain me with her writing, I have loved all her books and have introduced many of my friends to her writings, if you want a thriller to be something just a little but different read her books, the ones with Wesley Peterson.

I have read nearly all the Kate Ellis Wesley Peterson novels and find them enjoyable and well written .Wesley peterson is a black policeman who trained as an archaeologist .This brings the past and present into the solving of a case and makes it different from the normal murder mysteries

Have now had most of these books and have thoroughly enjoyed them all, always a little bit different with the two stories. Would recommend anyone to try Kate Ellis's books, sure they will enjoy them.

What can I say that I haven't said before? I have to limit myself to buying one at a time or I would be glued to them one after another. I have friends queuing up to read it as soon as I have finished.
