15 April 2011

Forensic archaeologist Dr Ruth Galloway is back. At the end of the previous novel she was pregnant with the child of married police colleague DCI Nelson and facing an uncertain future.

Now she has had a baby girl, Kate, and is struggling with the demands of life as a single working mom and her ambivalent feelings for Nelson.

She’s thrown in the deep end when the bodies of six men are found on the bleak Norfolk coast. Ruth discovers they’re German soldiers and, together with Nelson, starts to uncover a war crime dating back to World War 2.

When a body washes up on a beach and local members of the Home Guard suddenly start dying it becomes apparent someone is desperate to keep the truth hidden. Can they put a stop to the killing?

An enjoyable page-turner with characters you’ll want to meet again.
