The Skeleton Room

By Kate Ellis

Published Jan 2010

When workmen discover a skeleton in a sealed room at Chadleigh Hall, former girls’ boarding school and prospective luxury hotel, DI Wesley Peterson is called in to investigate. But within minutes they have a second suspicious death on their hands: a team of marine archaeologists working on a nearby shipwreck have dragged a woman’s body from the sea. As Wesley investigates Chadleigh Hall’s past and the woman’s violent death, both trails lead in surprising directions…

Could the shipwreck and the skeleton be linked to five apparently unrelated deaths that have occurred in recent years? As Wesley’s investigation develops, he finds the truth to be as shocking as it is unexpected.
