Publisher's Summary

Dr. Ruth Galloway returns to North Norfolk in her latest chilling adventure. DCI Nelson has been receiving threatening letters. They are anonymous yet somehow familiar. They read like the letters that first drew him into the case of the Crossing Places and to Ruth. 

But the author of those letters is dead. Or are they? 

The past is reaching out for Ruth and Nelson, and its grip is deadly.

What a good book

The story was very good, and the narration was excellent. I have always liked Elly Griffiths, her characters are vunerable and real . The mystery was not too far fetched. I'm looking forward to the next book

Mystery Is Intriguing

I almost didn't buy this book. In some of the last books in the Ruth Galloway series the personal drama had almost taken over the story. However this book had a better than decent mystery with some characters that hark back to the earlier books in the series.

Not a spoiler but honestly the drama from the last book in this series ended up as a bit of damp squib. I really liked her early books that concentrated on the archaeology and this one was a nice call back to those books.

The performance was first rate.

Great story—bad direction?

Loved the story, but whomever decided that phone calls should be performed in a whisper should be fired. Also some accents really need work. If they don’t sound authentic, let me use my imagination. Can’t wait for the next Ruth story.

Never disappoints

Once again Elly Griffiths artfully weaves various storylines, with teasing red herrings, to create mysteries within the mystery. No sugar coated characters- everyone has their flaws (as long as they are over 12 years old!). Best of all the main protagonists are all well rounded and very interesting! Archeological discovery and new age thinking wrapped up in a police procedural- delightful!

Highlight of the Series

I really enjoyed this story. I like the ruminations on feminism and gender stereotypes woven into the story. Finally everyone knows Kate is Harry's daughter.

Really enjoyed this series!

I listened to the first book in this series, and ended up listening to all of them (except for book 8 and 9, which Audible doesn't offer). The narrator did a great job. It sounds like there might be more books to come. If so, I'll get them.

Hurry up and let me know what comes next. I miss Ruth when eyes not around!

Wonderful. One of the best on the series yet if you like the personal mixed in with your mystery.

Another wondeful tale by McDowell!

Ruth finds herself a little less involved in the criminal investigations than in her past adventures but is no less the focus of this book.
