The 16th Wesley Peterson novel—intricately plotted detective stories, with an intelligent historical slant
When the decaying body of a murdered woman is discovered in a suburban house following an anonymous tip, DI Peterson has problems establishing her true identity. But as he digs deeper, he has another disturbing case to investigate—the naked bodies of two teenagers have been found with fatal shotgun wounds at the foot of a cliff. As Wesley searches for the truth, both cases become stranger, especially when he finds a connection between a sinister manhunt mirroring events from the time of the Napoleonic Wars, and an online game called Blood Hunt that's gripped the imagination of local teens. Then, as a skeleton is found near the place where the dead teenagers were last seen alive, Wesley finally has to face a terrible truth—and a hunt to the death.
