1919: The Derbyshire village of Wenfield is still reeling from four years of war. Just when the village has begun to regain its tranquillity, a young woman, Myrtle Bligh, is found stabbed and left in a woodland, her mouth slit to accommodate a dead dove - a bird of peace. When two more women are found murdered in identical circumstances, Wenfield is thrown into a panic. With rumours of a ghostly soldier with a painted face being spotted near the scene of the murders, Inspector Albert Lincoln is sent up from London to crack the terrible case - but with the killer still on the loose, who will be next to die at the hands of this vicious angel of death?

I have enjoyed many of Kate Elliis's books; however, this one did not measure up. There were many parts that just weren't believable. This will not discourage me from seeking out her books since this was the first one I was disappointed in.

Great mystery as are all of Kate Ellis's books.

Her series featuring Wesley Peterson is a very compelling one featuring both a historical mystery and a modern one.
I love the way there is a small excerpt from an earlier era at the beginning of each chapter developing the historical mystery and the way the author ties it into the modern mystery.
I finish one book and can't wait for the next!
