Description

There's nothing Ruth Galloway hates more than amateur archaeologists, but when a group of them stumble upon Bronze Age artifacts alongside a dead body, she finds herself thrust into their midst - and into the crosshairs of a string of murders circling ever closer. 

Ruth is back as head of archaeology at the University of North Norfolk when a group of local metal detectorists - the so-called Night Hawks - uncovers Bronze Age artifacts on the beach, alongside a recently deceased body, just washed ashore. Not long after, the same detectorists uncover a murder-suicide - a scientist and his wife found at their farmhouse, long thought to be haunted by the Black Shuck, a humongous black dog, a harbinger of death. The further DCI Nelson probes into both cases, the more intertwined they become, and the closer they circle to David Brown, the new lecturer Ruth has recently hired, who seems always to turn up wherever Ruth goes.

Another good book

Decent story line, lots of characters, some suspense on “who done it”, and an ending that will presumably lead to the next book. Jane McDowell was excellent as usual. Thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Good premise, characters, atmosphere of the fens

After a hiatus, I caved and bought this title, having skipped several in the series. And once again, coming very near returning it, I decided to hang in!

The main characters and the fens keep me interested, but the fluff, unnecessary PC stuff — a character not using the W word (wife) for fear of insulting an individual whose partner might be a guy? Come ON, that’s over the top. The major issue for me is the writing style in each book: a bit of dialogue, or an event, always followed by an exhaustive explanation of the place, person or action. It becomes infuriating and distracting and ruins the flow. A pity, really, and for me, simpering and unnecessary.

Very satisfying , many thanks Ms Griffiths

Another excellent and riveting Ruth and Nelson installment . Never a letdown , love all the characters . Of course I am devoted to Ruth and Nelson , but Michelle is ,in addition ,very appealing with lots of character and and a fully
formed personality , not a two dimensional character .

Her best yet

I keep waiting for Ruth and Nelson to finally be together. This book was a little more romantic than the previous books, but still no commitment from Nelson. At the end of the story, his mother tells him he knows what to do about his messy love life. What will he do? This book is about so much more than an ill- fated affair. People die. Is it murder, murder/ suicide or accident. There're enough deaths to keep you guessing.

Can't wait for the next installment!

Since the first book in this series, I've been hooked. I love the characters and how they have evolved and grown. I had to feel sorry for the person who gave this book a bad review . I was sure as I read it that this was a person who had NOT read the previous books as I could see him or her trying to put together the characters and see how they shared history . All their lives have changed and intersected so many times and in so many ways. The journey to this book has been part of the fun of the reading.
This book is the best so far. I'm sure I will keep all the books in this series and re-read them many tines.
