Such a gripping tale that, as well as Wesley and Gerry being in Devon, where their the first murder takes place, takes us to The Cotswolds and Yorkshire on the track of a what they now know is a serial killer. However, they have found some coins in the field and when Wesley sees them, he immediately contacts his university friend Neil Watson, with whom he had studied archaeology at Exeter university. When two teenage girls take their metal detectors to a field close to the old manor house, their find brings Neil into what could very well be a monumental discovery. She worked in teaching, marketing and accountancy before first enjoying writing success as a winner of the North West Playwrights competition. I've read all books in this series and this one didn't disappoint, though I did get a bit confused with the number of characters appearing and had look back sometimes to remember who was who.

Neil not only gets to dig around in the attic for old documents, but his work in the field also garners the attention of nighthawks, and that leads to a stay with Wesley and Wesley's wife, Pam, who gave me the biggest laugh in the book. Overall, it was an ok read and I may be inclined to give Kate Ellis's works another go as the style of her writing is enjoyable. She has also twice been shortlisted for the CWA Short Story Dagger and been longlisted for the Theakston's Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award. Busy because it also is a site of suspected Roman habitation discovered by two young girls using their metal detectors.I did knock it down one star because I felt as though there was too many characters involved and I was having a hard time trying to remember who was who and how it related to the plot.

As Wesley delves into the life of the dead woman, he learns that she has been house sitting at Serpents Point, a large house near where she was found.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. In Serpent's Point, readers follow along with Wesley and Neil in the present day, but they're also treated to the journal entries of wannabe famous archaeologist Dr. There’s two plots that run alongside one another, one of the main investigation but another of a historical Roman archeological dig that’s occurring, which at first I didn’t like. Susan was quite attractive and empathetic and, at one point, had an admirer who she thought of as a stalker.
