When she's not digging up bones or other ancient objects, Ruth Galloway lectures at the University of North Norfolk. She lives happily alone in a remote place called Saltmarsh overlooking the North Sea and, for company; she has her cats Flint and Sparky, and Radio 4. When a child's bones are found in the marshes near an ancient site that Ruth worked on ten years earlier, Ruth is asked to date them.

The bones turn out to be two thousand years old, and DCI Harry Nelson, who called on Ruth for help, is disappointed. He'd hoped they would be the bones of a child called Lucy who's been missing for ten years; he's been getting letters about her ever since. Then a second girl goes missing and Nelson receives more letters.

Soon it becomes clear that Ruth is in grave danger from a killer who knows that her expert knowledge is being used to help the police with their enquiries. Download and start listening now!

    " First in the series and a very goods start. Love the two main characters and looking forward to reading more. "

    " Amazingly, mysteries have almost completely bifurcated into male and female versions. It would be best to enjoy both kinds, but this one was so far over to the female side that I just couldnt. And, honestly, I find it just as hard to understand post-Christian Britain. It's like we need to give the country a new name, so we know which cultural/literary tradition we are getting. "

    " Nice fast mystery. I like the English archaelogy as a starting point, but especially like Ruth Galloway, the independent 40-ish cat-loving professor with a less than perfect body. This book is the first in a series. I'll definitely be going on to #2, Janus Stone. "
