Just wanted to pass on a recommendation for this author.  While on a cruise, I picked up a book from the ship's swap shelf which she wrote. Good vacation read. It was entitled "The Flesh Tailor" and I found it to be a fast paced engaging mystery.  Her main character is DI Wesley Peterson and she has evidently written a number of mysteries which feature DI Peterson and his colleagues.  Since the one I read is her most recent, I plan to go back and read some of her others.  Has anyone else read her works and if so, which of her mysteries would you recommend?

I, too, "discoevred" her books a few months ago and have really enjoyed them.  I started at the beginning and have read the first 5...all that the library has!  Haven't run across any at the used book stores (or even new book stores), so have them on my wish list and am keeping my fingers crossed!!

I started reading this author with her other (newer) series featuring DI Joe Plantagenent (yes, he's a very distant relation to the historical royal Plantagenets) in a fictional UK city modeled on York. I've enjoyed the first two, and finally just managed to get the first Wesley Peterson book from PBS--which is a good thing, 'cause my library only has the latest few. I'll be checking it out soon to see if Wesley measures up to Joe. :)

I pretty much always read series in order, so it might be interesting trying to locate these, since I'm pledged to not purchase any books at least for this year.
