In this book someone has taken a killer of a video game and turned it into a reality Meanwhile the corpse of a woman has been found in a local house, and a weird concept art involving archaeology is also underway.Eventually the disparate threads of these crimes weave into a shocking story.Fantastic and macabre read.Highly recommended.
While so much attention has been on the book and film, The Hunger Games, having just finished this lastest in the Wesley Peterson series, I m thinking that an equally chilling and interesting film could be made of this fascinating book This is actually the 16th in the series Like other series, I ve started reading the newer books after discovering a copy in the library.Wesley Peterson is an urbane, university educated cop who also happens to be black His father is a well known cardiac surgeon Pe [...]
Better than some in this series, in my opinion the plot is complex, and the usual archaeology is less of an exact parallel, which makes it rather credible The historical plot forms a detailed and macabre story than usual, too The usual police characters are likeable as always.
Really good mix of past and present
oouuff What a ride finally done with it
I already wrote a review Again, problems with this page slow to download and update It times out and my review is lost Frustrating
If there is one thought I carried away from The Cadaver Game it s if the future lies in our children, we sometimes have reason to be very afraid To say would be to give away of the plot than I care to do.This is my sixteenth outing with Wesley, his team, and his boss Gerry Heffernan I ve watched each character grow and enjoyed the way Kate Ellis blends a modern police procedural series Wesley with archaeology and history his friend Neil Watson It s always good to catch up with Ellis s characte [...]
definitely not a standalone book the characters are underdeveloped though I HOPE the mains have been developed over the past 15 books , and the writing is choppy the story has an interesting premise 2.5stars
The Cadaver Game by Kate EllisPublished by Piatkus, 2012 ISBN 978 0 7499 5367 6An anonymous telephone call points the police to the discovery of a dead body at a cottage in Morbay The place is rented to a Tessa Trencham but the body has been lying there a while, and the maggots have been busy so visual identification is not possible Investigating are DI Wesley Peterson and his boss DCI Gerry Heffernan Whilst they are seeking dental records, the bodies of two teenagers are found naked and shot.Al [...]
I love Kate Ellis books and especially enjoy the mixture of a story from past and present times I do not enjoy the narrative by Gordon Griffin and feel he ruins the books somewhat but obviously Ms Ellis likes him as he narrates all the books so guess I have to put up with that one.This story starts with a woman s body being found in a decayed state in a house The supposed identity of the body is not certain when her business partner says she spoke with her a few days before The bodies of two tee [...]
The latest in the Wesley Peterson series A woman s body is found in a cottage but there is no identification on her and there is some confusion as to whether she is the owner of the cottage or someone else If she is someone else what is she doing in tshe cottage and who is she and why was she killed Two teenagers are reported missing and are eventually found shot and naked Peter on and his team have to discover what they were doing taking part in an online game called blood hunt and whether this [...]
Another enjoyable read featuring Wesley Peterson An decomposing corpse is found in a suburban house after an anonymous phone call to the police, and the bodies of two naked teenagers are discovered in a sandy cove below some cliffs They had been shot It all meshes together satisfactorily and I did not guess the outcome until very late in the book For the first time in the Petersen series, I found the historical sub text irrelevant The interaction between the Turner Prize aspiring artist Kevin Or [...]
This is the first Kate Ellis book that I have read and I did enjoy it The plot is quite complex with multiple crimes interlinking with each other to form a very tightly woven plot The book starts with a body of an unidentified female followed by the bodies of two teenagers and from there comes a masterpiece in suspense and thrills with crime along the way of course The book did keep me guessing up until the reveal but I have to say that after the reveal I did find myself a little disappointed i [...]
Another enjoyable book in the Wesley Peterson series, this time with a historical sub plot from the Napoleonic era I like these stories and read them quite quickly this one probably deserves a three and a half star rating The convenient discovery of diaries which reveal all is just a bit too good to be true but it s the sort of thing any archivist dreams of and I think there possibly may be a bit too much dialogue, on balance, but this is a fun series to read if you enjoy both detective stories [...]
Wesley Peterson is back, and with less domestic angst than in recent books, although that s made up for by some of his colleagues ever complicated personal lives Meanwhile his best friend Neil has been hired for a most unusual dig by a bunch of highly pretentious individuals Not my favourite of the series, but some intriguing twists that leave the reader, along with the characters, wondering what really happened.
A generous 3 stars I have read several books in this series and they are becoming a bit predictable I also thought that the body count was approaching Midsummer Murders though I worked out who dunnit and or less why I do like the settings and working out where they are e.g Tradmouth Dartmouth Neston Totnes Morbay Torbay possibly just Torquay
Came in mid series which is always difficult but this was a good read and I ll read Bought because I knew the author was part of Crossing the Tees festival but unfortunately can t go to her event so can t get this signed Probably no bad thing as it s obviously a buy 3 for a fiver from The Works Dunno if this affects what the author gets
It was a good book with lots of things going on at once This is my first Wesley Peterson book and it wasn t bad I ll read another just to give her another chance From what I have read on here her books are well read so I ll read a couple .
Another intriguing mystery set in South Devon The chilling premise of the Blood Hunt felt as though it actually could happen a dark form of LARPing.Very little character development though for Wesley and his colleagues in this one though.
Only one to go, the format is now becoming stale, the police procedures are not good I enjoyed the story but this must be the 15 16th book in the same mode I have the last one ready to read but will leave it for awhile yet.
The main problem with this book is alot of the characters have similar names which makes it difficult to follow Apart from that it s a good story with likeable people in a great setting I am well aware this is book 16 and may go back and seek out earlier stories.
Up to usual standard
Must read all the other books by this author
Just love Kate Ellis
I really enjoyed this Kate Ellis I was beginning to get a little bored with her format but would recommend this book A page turner and the storey kept you engrossed.
A reasonable murder mystery mixing past and present Not as good as her usual books.
A classic Kate Ellis with two murders threads being related simultaneously, one old and one current.
Alright but not her best.
Very sad book Basic outline becoming formulaic and predictable unfortunately.
Really enjoyed this book I love the way the author dips in to the past and the present to solve the mystery.
