Summary

Serpent's Point in South Devon is the focus of local legends. The large house on the headland is shrouded in an ancient tale of evil, and when a woman is found strangled on the coastal path nearby, DI Wesley Peterson is called in to investigate. The woman had been house-sitting at Serpent's Point, and Wesley is surprised to discover that she was conducting an investigation of her own into unsolved missing persons cases. Could these enquires have led to her murder?

While the case takes Wesley to Yorkshire and the Cotswolds, his friend, archaeologist Neil Watson, is making a dramatic discovery of his own in the fields nearby. Then, when a skeleton is uncovered, the pressure rises to find a killer—and Wesley and Neil find out that Serpent's Point holds more secrets than anyone could have imagined.

A Good Read

This is another good read from Kate Ellis .This is well crafted plot with a surprising twist at the end The

back story of the police team and the link with the archeological aspects of a secondary plot all add to a satisfying story line in a lovely part of the country.

Another Excellent Story from Ellis

This is the 26th Detective Wesley Peterson book and is just as enjoyable and entertaining as those that preceed it. If you enjoy a good contemporary police procedural try this series. One thing that makes it unique is the historical story that runs parallel to the main plot.
