    1. Kate Ellis was born and brought up in Liverpool and she studied drama in Manchester She worked in teaching, marketing and accountancy before first enjoying writing success as a winner of the North West Playwrights competition Crime and mystery stories have always fascinated her, as have medieval history and archaeology which she likes to incorporate in her books She is married with two grown up sons and she lives in North Cheshire, England, with her husband and Vivaldi the cat.

    2. Detective Sergeant Wesley Peterson investigates the death of a young woman linked to a missing child case on his first day after being transferred from London to Tradmouth in South Devon. Meanwhile, his friend Neil Watson finds a dead woman in an archaeological excavation. The woman died several centuries ago and it seems that she was murdered. Oddly enough seems it to be strange similarities with the two casesI read and loved The Death Season, book 19 in this series at the beginning of this yea [...]

    3. It's rare for me to finish a book in just one sitting nowadays when I'm so busy but I managed it with this one. And now I'm desperate to get my hands on the next in the series!This story is a wonderful blend of modern crime/thriller/mystery and historical conspiracy. And it works so so well.I couldn't stop turning the pages, reading on. Something about this book just hooked me.I loved that there was a historical aspect to it. This detective was more than just crime-orientated, he has outside int [...]

    4. First Sentence: The child flung his tricycle aside and toddled, laughing, toward the basking cat.A university graduate in archeology and the first black police officer in Tradmouth, DS Wesley Peterson begins his first day at work with a murder. The body of a young woman has been found off a cliff path, the damage to her face rendering her unrecognizable. Wesley’s university friend, Neill, is heading a team of archeologists on the site of a 17th century merchant’s house in town when the skele [...]

    5. Enjoyable police procedural with a historical twist. A good weekend read. I’ll look for more in this series.

    6. Kate Ellis's Wesley Peterson series is one I have wanted to read for a long time so I decided one of my 2016 aims would be to read the entire run of 20 titles. This is the first in the series and I don't feel I will have any problems reading the rest. The combination of police procedural (the murder of a young woman on a coastal path) and archaeological mystery (the discovery of the ancient skeletons of a woman child in the cellar of an ancient building) is handled quite well, although this bein [...]

    7. I enjoyed the parallels between a murder mystery in the past with one in the present. The author did a fine job of incorporating both worlds into the storyline without confusing the reader.I always enjoy a good archaeology tale and this one did not disappoint. However, the subject matter was something I had no interest in so could not get emotionally involved in the story.However, I have the next in the series waiting for me and will look forward to reading it.

    8. Mi è piaciuto molto! Il protagonista, Wesley, mi è subito stato simpatico, soprattutto per la sua passione per l'archeologia. La storia investigativa contemporanea si mischia alle indagini "archeologiche" su un assassinio del 1624 circa. Questi due fili narrativi si intrecciano, richiamandosi a vicenda. Lo stile della Ellis mi ha subito preso, per la sua vicinanza alla realtà, allo slang e alla parlata quotidiana. Le vicende si svolgono nel Devon, un posto che prima o poi dovrò visitare. La [...]

    9. Detective Sergeant Wesley Peterson is a new addition to the Tradmouth police force, a recent transplant from London. Before he can even settle in at his desk, the body of a young woman is found in the countryside. With no identification on her and no report of a missing person matching her description, the police have a puzzle to solve. While the murder investigation gets underway, another group of officers are investigating the kidnapping of a two year old boy from outside his family's cottage. [...]

    10. This is the first of the DS Wesley Peterson series - I'd read lots of others before finding this one! Wesley has just arrived from London to take up a post in the fictional South Devon town of Tradmouth. A West Indian, with a white wife, supply-teacher Pam, he meets with little racism - in fact it's almost as if the token amount hinted at is there simply for effect, as it is quickly dismissed.At the police station, he meets gruff DI Gerry Heffernan - who emerges from his office "like a bear waki [...]

    11. This book has a whole lot of my reading catnip: British village police procedural, archaeology, race and gender issues, and a little bit of history thrown in. Sound like a lot? It's deftly handled in a very good story. Wesley Peterson has recently transferred to London to a more rural village. At the same time, his friend from University is conducting a dig in the village at the house of a once prosperous merchant family. The people at the dig discover two bodies from the 1600s, a young woman an [...]

    12. This is an entertaining mix of historical mystery, modern mystery, and police procedural.I like the fact that the detective is confronted with problems in his life outside of his job and that he has archaeological knowledge and interest.Strong characters and well depicted locations support the story.I look forward to read the next book in the series.

    13. I love starting out the New Year with a nice, grisly murder, don't you? Especially when it's set in the lovely Devonshire region of England, supplemented with a parallel storyline in which an Elizabethan woman is murdered for much the same reasons as the contemporary woman - poor, friendless souls!Liverpool native Kate Ellis - now working on the 17th novel in the Wesley Peterson series - started out these novels with such verve and supreme storytelling talent I can't imagine how much better her [...]

    14. Two mysteries for the price of one, July 13, 2011 "Each of my Wesley Peterson stories combines an intriguing contemporary murder mystery with a parallel history case," declares Kate Ellis on her website. Ellis, an "armchair" archeologist, has written fifteen of these mysteries. THE MERCHANT'S HOUSE (1999) is the debut novel and introduces Detective Sergeant Wesley Peterson, who with his wife Pam, a supply teacher, has left London to accept a position with the police of the fictional seaport town [...]

    15. This is the first book in the series about DS Wesley Peterson and his West Country Police Department. Unfortunately, I read book two first, however, by the time I picked this up, I was familiar with the characters. Which maybe made the read a little more enjoyable.DS Peterson is transferred from a London posting to the West Country. He has a mixed marriage and his wife Pam is real pushy to have a child, she is a substitute teacher, in a district unfamiliar to her. After reading two books of thes [...]

    16. This is the first Wesley Peterson mystery. Sgt Peterson has moved to a small town in England after a start in London. A smaller force, a new start for his wife and Wesley, he arrives as the local force is investigating the disappearance of a small boy and has just started investigating the murder of a mysterious woman. Thrown into this mix, Peterson's wife, Pamela is struggling to sort out why she can't get pregnant, involving visits to a private clinic. Peterson is a likable character and the o [...]

    17. I found this a very enjoyable mystery. Kate Ellis' book featuring a black police detective newly transferred from London to a small town, is a pleasant and easy read, it's perfect for the long commute to and from work. It has all of the characters that you would expect; a close friend from the past, who also happens to be working in this new town, providing the detective with an escape from work and personal stress; the moody wife; the easy-going and attractive new co-worker (perhaps a change of [...]

    18. A decent if not particularly memorable police proceduralThe first in a series.Very likeable characters, good interactions between them, several threads to the story. There is the case of a woman found bashed to death, a missing toddler and an archaeological mystery.I liked that the characters had lives outside of work with interests in hobbies. A few minor quibbles. There are a couple of instances where the detectives seemed to take information given to them and not check it properly. Also found [...]

    19. An intelligent, seamless blend of contemporary British mystery with a lesser historical story line woven throughout. The plot is delightfully complex and the truth will elude the reader to the end. This is the first novel in a lengthy series. With a smooth touch, Kate Ellis includes the topics of biracial marriage, job racism, lonely older men, and the longing for a child. No sex and the violence is not graphic. Good reading ahead. -GloriaClick here to place this book on hold.

    20. It's ok I guess. It's the kind of paperback that you buy while on holiday or at the beach, read it while waiting for the bus on sunbathing and forget all about it as soon as you finish it.I like the characters. But the story, though not bad, was very predicatable. The writing could have been better.

    21. Most enjoyable whodunit. Fully rounded characters,well described west country scenery and a parallel storyline from history. This is the first in a series so I anticipate getting to know Wesley Peterson better.

    22. I enjoyed this novel. It is about a black policeman in a small english village. There are several stories intertwined. The death of a young woman, the kidnapping of a little boy, and a 400 year old mystery.I will now have to order the other books - this is the first in the series

    23. This book introduces the characters in a new series. At this point they are still skin deep sketches. The mystery needed a bit of a jolt with a cattle prod to move it along a bit. All in all I would like to give the author and the characters another chance in the next book,THE ARMADA BOY.

    24. absolutely raced through this. love the fact that the are two mysteries running side by side drawing you deeper and deeper into the centre of the puzzle. the characters are strong and intriguing, I am really looking forward to reading the next in the series to see how they develop.

    25. DS Wesley Peterson has just been transferred to the town of Tradmouth. He barely gets through the door before being presented with two seemingly unrelated cases - one involving an abducted toddler, the other a murdered woman. At the same time, Wesley becomes peripherally involved with an archaeological dig at a seventeenth-century merchant's house.The mystery was well done, with many twists and turns. I did figure it out early on (it wasn't even challenging), but was still interested to see how [...]

    26. Here we have author, Kate Ellis, channeling Reginald Hill for all she's worth! This book reads like the Daziel & Pascoe met Joe Sixsmith and collaborated! In fact, at one point in the book, I forgot I was reading something else and started looking for "Fat Andy" to make a crack at Pascoe! However, I hasten to say that Ellis's similar style is done with such finesse that it works perfectly andher characters are truly themselves and just as authentic as those more famous. I will read more of h [...]

    27. This is a decent murder mystery that combines an old death with a new one. It does not spend too much time on the historical aspect to prevent it becoming messy. Many story threads in the first half will keep the reader’s guessing and engaged, and most of them interlink. Dialogue is usually good, although accents are a bit hard to read.Strangest issue is how the main character, Wesley, becomes useless in the back half. He’s either not present at important moments (interviews etc) or a virtua [...]

    28. Wesley Peterson is an archaeologist by training and a police officer by vocation. He transfers to the town of Tradmouth where be becomes its first black officer. His first case is the murder of a woman whose face has been destroyed so she can't be identified. This case turns out to be tied to a missing child case. Also in Tradmouth, working on a dig is Wesley's old friend, Neil. He uncovers the 400 year old skeleton of a murder victim and sets about to try and discover her identity.One thing I r [...]

    29. This is the first in a series set in Devon and featuring DS Wesley Peterson and his colleagues. Wesley's team investigates the murder of a young woman, while another team is trying to locate a missing toddler. Wesley studied archaeology at university and meets up with a friend, Neil, who is working on the site of a 17th century merchant's house. The chapter headings feature sections from the journal of said merchant, and these were interesting, although the sections where Wesley and Neil discuss [...]
