A team of archaeologists, investigating coastal erosion on the north Norfolk coast, unearth six bodies buried at the foot of a cliff. How long have they been there? What could have happened to them? Forensics expert Ruth Galloway and DCI Nelson are drawn together again to unravel the past. Tests reveal that the bodies have lain, preserved in the sand, for sixty years. The mystery of their deaths stretches back to the Second World War, a time when Great Britain was threatened by invasion. But someone wants the truth of the past to stay buried, and will go to any lengths to keep it that way... even murder.

Listener Opinions

    " I wanted to like this book better than I did. I found Ruth Galloway more irritating than sympathetic though I sure recognized her some of her maternal obsessions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 2/14/2014

    " This is the 3rd Elly Griffiths book I have read and while I enjoyed it, I wasn't as gripped by the story line as with the others. The characterisation and settings continue to be the books' strengths, but the plot I found to be distinctly lacking; I was always far more interested in the characters' dynamics than the murder mystery. Ruth Galloway herself is a masterpiece and I will read the next installment purely for that reason. "

    " Well written mystery. Part of a series that is best read in order. I love the archaeology theme for this series and the use of setting and mood is excellent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz Hurley | 2/10/2014

    " The plots seem to be getting a bit improbable now, constant repetition of previous events is tiresome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Grace P. | 2/7/2014

    " I really love this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann | 2/6/2014

    " I enjoyed this, the third in the Ruth Galloway series, as much as the first two. I love the combination of an innovative plot, interesting characters and the North Norfolk coast setting. Looking forward to reading more in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eleanor Dalen | 1/18/2014

    " Love this series.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandi Lee Lee | 1/10/2014

    " One of the best in the series. The ending!!! AH! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlott | 1/3/2014

    " I'm going to find more books in this series. I enjoyed this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary | 12/21/2013

    " A rather bleak book - including the North Norfolk setting. I found the plot a bit far fetched and I can't quite visualise a University with a Forensic Archeology department in King's Lynn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clare | 12/16/2013

    " One for Carey, excellent mystery set in north Norfolk! Carey, I will lend it to you next time I see you.....hope you are having a miserable cold time in Italy (not really!!)... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 LeeAnne | 12/8/2013

    " Meh. Disjointed and plodding come to mind if those two descriptions can be used in conjunction. Ruth seems to have taken leave of her senses with the birth of her baby because she is a wishy-washy mess now. Very disappointing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana | 12/3/2013

    " Griffiths creates the most wonderful and atmospheric settings. Do not read this book first, however - start with Crossing Places to get the most out of this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 11/28/2013

    " Solid, entertaining, but if one more person in this series almost drowns I might give up on them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 11/25/2013

    " Another great installment in the story of Dr. Ruth Galloway, forensic archaeologist. A good mystery story which kept me guessing right until the end of the book. Going to start the 4th book now! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vivian | 8/31/2013

    " I wasn't particularly wowed by this third entry in the Ruth Galloway series. For me, the "mystery" takes a back seat to the relationships between the characters in the book. I really like Ruth's character, especially in her new role as a mother, and look forward to the.next book in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 4/16/2013

    " I have liked every book in this series. The characters are well defined and the mysteries are gripping. I'm looking forward to the next book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 4/8/2013

    " I think the books in this series gets better and better. The 4th comes out soon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew Ogborn | 2/18/2013

    " Similar in tone and subject to a project I am working on, the third in the Ruth Galloway series went in another brave direction with the plot. The interesting secondary characters have been given more page time too. Bravo "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darth_hamster | 3/1/2012

    " A lovely book with an interesting twist to a WWII rumour. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vera | 2/12/2012

    " I love this series and Ruth Galloway. She seems like a person I could know and like. All the characters are well-drawn and add to the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn | 10/17/2011

    " I wanted to like this book better than I did. I found Ruth Galloway more irritating than sympathetic though I sure recognized her some of her maternal obsessions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackie | 9/4/2011

    " Very good these books get better,only one criticism why does the heroin always end up facing the murderer alone at the end of the book? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clare | 8/9/2011

    " One for Carey, excellent mystery set in north Norfolk! Carey, I will lend it to you next time I see you.....hope you are having a miserable cold time in Italy (not really!!)... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nancy | 8/3/2011

    " First book I was able to download from TPL to my iPad. Cozy mystery set in England. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginna | 7/30/2011

    " Not as well-written as some of my other crimis, but an OK read. It's pretty clear that the forensic anthropology is coming from research rather than her own experience.
    I've got them out of order. Should read Crossing Places before House at Seas End "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 7/11/2011

    " Another good book in the series. I like Ruth and Nelson, both unconventional sleuths. I also like archaeology series so this is a winner for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 6/8/2011

    " Griffiths scores a direct hit once again with Sea's End. She's found a formula that works very well and she sticks to it. Ruth Galloway, now a single working mom, continues to delight. How long till #4 is available? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shaon | 10/9/2010

    " Elly Griffiths' Ruth Galloway series just keeps getting better in this, the third of the series. "
