Four centuries, two murders, one motive...

Archaeologist Neil Watson did not to expect to find the body of American veteran Norman Oppenheim 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. Four hundred 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 ... An intriguing blend of history and detection from the author of THE MERCHANT'S HOUSE.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wesley Peterson #2 Interesting returning main characters, murder and history all the way from the Spanish Armada to WWII to present day, and writing that is fast and crisp. Ellis’ writing is stronger in this second book…she’s no doubt one of those serial authors who gets better with each book written. She juggles three plot lines that are in some way connected...the main plot surrounding Wesley Peterson. There are a lot of books in this series so I'm looking forward to seeing what Ellis does and how she develops.
