Inevitably the murder investigation uncovers secrets which more people that Wynn want kept hidden. The modern murder is linked in all sorts of sinister ways with a famous local murder in the eighteen eighties which involved among other things a macabre collection of puppets which can re-enact notorious murders.
DI Wesley Peterson finds he is involved with the case in a more personal way than he might have expected when his son, Michael, gets in with the wrong crowd. His boss - Gerry - has his own problems which have come back to haunt him. I enjoyed this well written mystery which skilfully blends past and present and produces a very sinister tale indeed.
I have enjoyed all this series and I think the author is one of the best mystery writers blending past and present. The device can become hackneyed in the hands of less skilful authors but Kate Ellis brings both past and present to life.
