‘GALLOWAY NOW SEEMS AS REAL AS MARPLE AND MORSE’ The Times


‘SET IN DIVINE NORTH NORFOLK. INTENSELY ATMOSPHERIC AND GREAT’ India Knight


When builders renovating a café in King’s Lynn find a human skeleton in the wall, they immediately call for DCI Harry Nelson and Dr Ruth Galloway, Head of Archaeology at the nearby University of North Norfolk. Ruth is preoccupied with the possible closure of her department and by the fact that Nelson and his wife are now living separately. Nevertheless she agrees to take on the case.

She sees immediately that the bones are modern and they are soon identified as the remains of Katherine Sands, who went missing in the 1990s. Katherine attended a spiritual well-being course and suspicion falls on the leader of the course – Ruth’s friend, Cathbad.

The Police start to investigate the group and find that there are other missing women, making matters even worse for Cathbad. The trail leads Nelson to the famous Neolithic flint mines in Grimes Graves and to an archaeology group. Ruth agrees to infiltrate the group and there meets a figure from her own past. Soon the race is on to exonerate Cathbad, but will Ruth and Nelson uncover the truth in time to save their friend?
