Publisher's Summary

Archaeologist Neil Watson did not expect to find the body of American veteran Norman Openheim in the ruins of the old chantry chapel. He turns to his old student friend, Detective Sergeant Wesley Peterson, for help. Ironically, both men are looking at an invading force - Wes the WWII Yanks and Neil a group of Spaniards killed by outraged locals as they limped from the wreckage of the Armada. 400 years apart, two strangers in a strange land have died violently - could the same motives of hatred, jealousy and revenge be at work? Wes is running out of time to find out....

one of my favourite series

I love Kate Ellis's Wesley Peterson series. The mixture of modern and history is very well done. Another great storyline that really kept me guessing. Highly recommended.

A story badly told

I was very disappointed with the narration of this book. The Liverpudlian accent was more Welsh. Furthermore the narration made Wesley completely boring and bland

I have a added interest in coming from the area where the books are set so I try and guess the place the places in the book on based on
