Bodies galore for the Cadaver Games in Formby

Kate Ellis is a very good and very under rated author, she has written 16 superb books featuring the enigmatic and clever 'tec with taste Wesley Peterson. He is also as far as I am aware the first black detective in British Crime Fiction and yet no TV despite taught plots and a nice line in genuinely interesting history/archaeology that makes the plot race along with plenty of twists and turns. 

She also has started being a bit more gritty as time has gone by, her earlier works were great and deserve a major repackaging to bring her look into line with her latest offerings. 'Jackal Man' and 'Flesh Tailor' are particularly good recent works but her latest Wesley Peterson mystery 'The Cadaver Game' really shows how good she is and we hope may soon make her a bigger name and even win her a 'Dagger' maybe.

She takes a twist of Napoleonic man hunting the 'Bloody Hunt' and updates it to an on line gaming experience and soon the bodies pile up...can  DI Wesley and Neil Watson his archaeologist co-cracker of crimes sort the skeletons from the warm ones and solve the case.

Kate also writes about 'Ebory' a reworked York with her darker and more atmospheric series featuring DI Joe Plantagenet (she does like her historical references eh!). She has just issued the 4th in hardback (sorry we sold out )

Why not pop over to for all the news
