When the decaying body of a murdered woman is discovered, DI Peterson has difficulties establishing her true identity. But as he digs deeper, he has another disturbing case to investigate - the naked bodies of two teenagers have been found with fatal shotgun wounds at the foot of a cliff.

As Wesley searches for the truth, both cases become stranger as he uncovers a connection between a sinister manhunt mirroring events from the time of the Napoleonic Wars and an online game that's gripped the imaginations of local teenagers.

Then, as a skeleton is found near the place where the dead teenagers were last seen alive, Wesley has to face a terrible truth . . . and a hunt to the death.

A bit sensational, but the writing is just good enough to make up for it. As with another of her books, there's a parallel plot involving historical characters related to the archeological dig, so there's two stories about the same theme.
