The Mechanical Devil

19 Jul

“The Mechanical Devil” is the most recent novel by Kate Ellis.  Sadly, Ms Ellis isn’t as well known in Australia as she deserves to be.  Her books are always interesting.

In “The Mechanical Devil” a man and a woman are found in a field…shot…and the last person to see the woman has gone missing.

With a double murder, and a missing person. DI Wesley Peterson really doesn’t have time for a break-in at the home of a person he assisted the previous year. Perhaps he should have made the time…

Meanwhile, Dr Neil Watson is dealing with the discovery of a 16th century automaton, and then a much more recent death… which may tie into Wesley’s cases.

A fantastically plotted tale of murder and madness.

A thoroughly delicious read.

Highly recommended.
