TITLE: THE BONE GARDEN
AUTHOR: KATE ELLIS
Details: no. 5 Wesley Peterson Mystery
During an excavation in a lost garden two skeletons are found in quick succession, both having died a violent death a long time ago. Wesley Peterson, though interested, has other things on his mind because a man has been stabbed to death in a caravan, leaving no clues as to his identity. The only interesting thing found with him is an article about the gardens.
A local solicitor is desperate for a discrete talk with Wesley, but before the two can talk, the solicitor is found dead, apparently having been repeatedly hit by a flying cricket ball.
While past and present once again show shocking similarities, someone close to Peterson is in danger of becoming the last victim in the modern mystery.
Well plotted and well written, as usual , and a pleasure to read.
