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

On a summers' evening, Robert and Greta Gerdner are shot dead at their isolated home in the Devon countryside.

DI Wesley Peterson suspects the execution-style murders might be linked to Robert's past career in the police - until Robert's name is found on a list of people who've been sent tickets anonymously for a tour of Darkhole Grange, a former asylum on Dartmoor.

Wesley discovers that others on the list have also died in mysterious circumstances and, as he is drawn into the chilling history of the asylum, he becomes increasingly convinced that it holds the key to the case.

When his friend, archaeologist Neil Watson, finds the skeleton of a woman buried in a sealed chamber dating back to the fifteenth century at his nearby dig, Wesley wonders whether there might be a connection between the mysterious stone cell and the tragic events at Darkhole Grange.

With the clock ticking, Wesley must solve the puzzle before the next person on the list meets a terrible end...

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 gripping mystery if you love reading Elly Griffiths and Ann Cleeves.
