Description
In this first Ruth Galloway mystery from Mary Higgins Clark Award–winning author Elly Griffiths, we meet the prickly, 40-ish forensic archaeologist, who keeps her cats Flint and Sparky for company and, given the choice, prefers to spend her days out in Norfolk's fossil-rich Saltmarsh, on the edge of the North Sea. She is intrigued, however, when DCI Harry Nelson comes to her with a set of diminutive bones to identify—bones that turn out to be from the Iron Age, more than 2,000 years ago, though Nelson had hoped they belonged to a little girl who has been missing for ten years. And in a series of taunting letters that Nelson has been receiving ever since, it appears a killer now knows that Ruth is on the case, and he's ready to strike again.

"[Elly] Griffiths combines elements of archaeology, mythology, and even ornithology with the foreboding mood of the marsh. The result is an atmospheric mystery with a pulse-pounding climax and starring an oh-so-human protagonist who deals with life realistically. A knockout start for a series that should have broad appeal across the crime genre, from thriller fans to lovers of slightly edgy cozies."—Booklist (starred review)
