When Dr James Dalcott is shot dead in his cottage it looks very much like an execution. And as DI Wesley Peterson begins piecing together the victim's life, he finds that the well-liked country doctor has been harbouring strange and dramatic family secrets. Meanwhile, archaeologist Neil Watson has discovered a number of skeletons in nearby Tailors Court that bear marks of dissection and might be linked to tales of body snatching by a rogue physician in the sixteenth century. But when Neil finds the bones of a child buried with a 1930s coin, the investigation takes a sinister turn. Who were the children evacuated to Tailors Court during World War II? And where are they now? When a link is established between the wartime evacuees and Dr Dalcott's death, Wesley is faced with his most challenging case yet.

Yahm
Love Kate Ellis, and her plots always draw me in.

Kate Ellis' combination of past and present worked exceedingly well in this book, as they do in most of the others. The ending was quite unexpected and the author creates such suspense that it is difficult to anticipate who the murderer is until almost the end. A must-read for fans of Kate Ellis and the Wesley Peterson series.

First Line: November. The month of the dead. The month of remembrance and funerals.

Once again Kate Ellis has written a wonderful blend of new and ancient mysteries occurring in the south of England. Dr. James Dalcott is found shot dead in his cottage, and when Detective Inspector Wesley Peterson begins piecing together the facts of the victim's life, he finds the well-liked doctor had been hiding some very strange family secrets.

While Peterson is working on the Dalcott murder, archaeologist Neil Watson has been called out to Tailors Court-- a property that dates back to Elizabethan times-- where six skeletons have been found. Watson finds that the skeletons show signs of dissection and may be linked to tales of sixteenth-century body snatching. However, one more skeleton is found-- that of the body of a young child buried with a toy car and a coin dating from the 1930s. Watson's investigation has taken an even more sinister turn from the days of Queen Elizabeth to the time of children evacuated from London during World War II. Could there possibly be a connection between the murdered doctor and the skeletons of Tailors Court?

If you've ever read a Wesley Peterson mystery written by Kate Ellis, you know there is a connection between the new mystery and the old, and the delight is in trying to discover the connection before the author reveals it. Now through fourteen books in this series, the main characters feel like well-loved members of my family, and I look forward to reading about what's happened to them as much as I enjoy the murder investigations.

The Flesh Tailor is particularly engaging because of the three separate cases. The present-day case concerning the execution-style murder of the doctor is truly puzzling, and learning about the history of an old house has always been a favorite past time of mine. Tailors Court and its Elizabethan occupant do not disappoint. When Ellis introduces the memories of a wartime evacuee who experienced Tailors Court as a child, my interest and my level of enjoyment moved up another notch or three. The quality of Ellis's Wesley Peterson mysteries is consistently high, but The Flesh Tailor is one of the best of the series. If you love mysteries that blend excellent characterization with the police procedural and strong dashes of archaeology and history, this series will most definitely be your cup of tea. Curl up with one and find out!

A small child's skeleton from the 1930s and a modern day doctor killed in what looks suspiciously like a cold blooded execution form the basis for the fourteenth book in the Wesley Peterson series. Archaeology also comes into it when Neil Watson also discovers skeletons dating back to the sixteenth century not far from the child's burial and hears legends about Tailors Court being the home of a maverick doctor who was hang for murder.

When Wesley and his boss, Gerry Heffernan discover that Dr James Dalcott - the modern murder victim - was researching his family history and also worked at a local clinic which is shrouded in secrecy the plot thickens almost to impenetrability. Wesley and Gerry are left scratching their heads about precisely how the past is connected to the present.
I wondered at several points in the story whether there were just too many strands to this plot and not all of them were developed in as much detail as I had hoped for; but having said that the author manages to resolve all the outstanding points by the end of the book. I certainly did not guess what was going on until almost the end.

I liked the way the characters are developed with even the minor characters coming to life. I thought the obnoxious journalist was very well done as was the way Wesley managed to fend her off. I liked the historical aspects of the story and the World War II connections and how they were still affecting modern people. I also thought the family history element was well done as it showed how such research can lead to unintended consequences.

Overall this was an enjoyable book and just as well written and enthralling as the rest in the series. I would recommend this series to anyone who likes their crime novels in the classic mould with the addition of historical elements.
