Synopsis

'A beguiling author who interweaves past and present' The Times

When builders converting Chadleigh Hall, a former school, into a luxury hotel discover a skeleton in a sealed room, DI Wesley Peterson is called in to investigate.

Soon Wesley has a second suspicious death on their hands: a team of marine archaeologists working on a nearby shipwreck off the Devon coast have dragged a woman's body from the sea.

As Wesley investigates Chadleigh Hall's past and the woman's violent death, both trails lead in surprising directions. Matters are further complicated when a man wanted for murder in London appears on the scene - a man who may know more about the case than he admits . . .

Whether you've read the whole series, or are discovering Kate Ellis's DI Wesley Peterson novels for the first time, this is the perfect page-turner if you love reading Elly Griffiths and Ann Cleeves.
