When Dr James Dalcott is shot dead it looks very much like an execution. And as DI Wesley Peterson begins piecing together his life, he finds that the well-liked doctor has been harbouring dramatic family secrets.
Meanwhile, archaeologist Neil Watson has discovered a number of skeletons in nearby Tailors Court that bear marks of dissection and might be linked to tales of body snatching. But when Neil finds the bones of a child buried with a 1930s coin, the investigation takes a sinister turn.
Who were the children evacuated to Tailors Court during World War II? And where are they now? When a link is established between the evacuees and Dr Dalcott's death, Wesley is faced with his most challenging case yet.
Well crafted and thoroughly enjoyable. Always enjoy ready the Kate Ellis books which hold my attention.
This is the second Kate Ellis' books I've listened to and will certainly be listening to more.
A bit of a grisly tale, but so many twists and turns, it had me hooked right to the end.
