Review: Dead Man’s Lane

Dead Man’s Lane – Kate Ellis

WPAnother in the excellent and enjoyable Wesley Peterson murder mystery series: number 23 to be exact. The complex plot twists and turns, and even though I picked up enough clues along the way to work out who the killer was a bit before the end, there was still a final twist in store that I hadn’t anticipated at all. More I won’t say so as not to spoil anything, but definitely recommended if you like a good mystery.

I interviewed Kate Ellis in 2016 and we talked about how she came to write the Wesley Peterson series of  mysteries with their archaeological sub-plots. You’ll find the interview here.
