Book 16 in the Wesley Peterson series (2012)
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.
Why did the teenage victims take part in an online game called Blood Hunt which they were eventually persuaded to play for real? Then a skeleton is found near the place where the dead teenagers were last seen alive and Wesley finally has to face a terrible truth—and a hunt to the death.
