Kate Ellis's wonderfully addictive series of West Country-set crime novels feature Wesley Peterson, one of Devon's first black detectives
A black policeman from the Met might expect to meet some resistance, when he's transferred to a West Country seaside town?but, for DS Wesley Peterson, it's like coming home. One of the first people he bumps into is an old friend?Neil is heading an archaeological dig at a Tudor merchant's house, and Wesley has to tear himself away to become involved in a major search for a missing child. The tension is mounting when a body is found?but to Wesley's relief it is turned up at Neil’s dig and is more than 400 years old. It seems to be a tragic murder nonetheless, for the bones are those of a strangled young woman and a newborn baby. When another, more recent body is found, the circumstances surrounding the child's disappearance become more complex, and Wesley is increasingly convinced that the age-old motives of jealousy, sexual obsession, and desperate longing for a child are behind the crimes?ancient and modern?that he must solve soon if further tragedy is to be averted.

Kate Ellis is the author of the Wesley Peterson Series and has twice been nominated for the Crime Writers’ Association Short Story Dagger.
