Is anyone in this group familiar with Kate Ellis? Her books are kind of parallel stories. The protagonist, Wesley Peterson, is a British cop in Devon, with a supportive supervisor (nice touch for a change). He had studied archaeology before becoming a cop. His best friend, Neil, is an archaeologist. Peterson confronts crimes that have parallels in the history Neil is uncovering during his excavations, and that info helps solve the modern day crimes.

It's a wonderful series, 12 books so far, beginning with The Merchant House. Unfortunately, they are difficult to get in the states. I've read the first six in the series, and a friend just lent me the seventh, The Skeleton Room, which I'm really looking forward to.

I wouldn't say that I'm "familiar" with Kate Ellis's books, but thanks for reminding me about her, CD1am, as I vaguely remember reading something of hers a few years ago and enjoying it. Shall have another look soon.

I've just checked Ellis out on


and see that Seeking the Dead will be published next month. Apparently it will be Book 1 of a series featuring one Joe Plantagenet.
