Description

When murder strikes close to home, Dr Ruth Galloway is determined to find justice - without ending up in the firing line herself.

'One of the most cinematic finales in recent crime fiction' Daily Telegraph

Dr Ruth Galloway, forensic archaeologist, spends a lot of time looking at death. But now death has found her, with the news that her long-time friend and ex-colleague Dan Golding has been killed in a house fire.

Ruth's grief soon turns to suspicion of arson when she receives a desperate letter from Dan, sent the day before he died. He had made a ground-breaking discovery that he was sure would change archaeology forever - and was petrified of the consequences.

Ruth feels compelled to travel north to investigate further, alongside DCI Harry Nelson who is also drawn into the case. But where Ruth goes, so does her young daughter, Kate. This time, the risks are even higher.

Once again, Griffiths does a great job of drawing us in to the chaotic, fractured world of Ruth Galloway, her unconventional, loveable heroine * CurledUp * All will enjoy Ruth's largely self-aware sardonic perspective on life, death, and relationships. * Publishers Weekly * Ruth Galloway is one of the most interesting new characters on the crime fiction scene * Good Book Guide * An admirably gutsy heroine * The Times * Griffiths weaves superstition and myth into her crime novels, skilfully treading a line between credulity and modern methods of detection * Sunday Times * A memorable, breathless race against time...One of the most cinematic finales in recent British crime novels * Daily Telegraph *
