Ruth Galloway has just returned from maternity leave and is struggling to juggle work and motherhood. When a team from the University of North Norfolk, investigating coastal erosion, finds six bodies buried at the foot of the cliff, she is immediately put on the case. DCI Nelson is investigating, but Ruth finds this more hindrance than help - Nelson is the father of her daughter, Kate. Still, she remains professional and concentrates on the case at hand.

Forensic tests prove that the bodies are from Southern Europe, killed sixty years ago. Police Investigations unearth records of Project Lucifer, a wartime plan to stop a German invasion. A further discovery reveals that members of the Broughton Sea's End Home Guard took a 'blood oath' to conceal some deadly wartime secret. The more information they uncover, the more elusive any explanation becomes. When a visiting German reporter is killed, Ruth and Nelson realise that someone is still alive who will kill to keep the secret of Broughton Sea's End's war years. Can they discover the truth in time to stop another murder?

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 1/15/2014

    " This was a serviceable mystery - not great but not bad. The characters were a little two dimensional.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fanficfan44 | 1/1/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 12/24/2013

    " I enjoyed this - the series is getting better as it goes along and the complications in the personal lives of the significant characters encrease. The characters who were less important in the earlier books are being fleshed out, making the books more multi-dimensional. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 12/14/2013

    " This is the third adventure of Elly Griffith's archaeologist murder expert Ruth and her detective 'friend' Nelson. Some old characters, some new ones, a mystery from the past as well as one from the present means that this is an enjoyable read. In fact, I can't wait until book four is available... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shaon | 12/12/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline Ingvaldsen | 11/11/2013

    " Engaging characters in an evocative and unusual setting star in the third in the Elly Griffiths series: a well-plotted, highly suspenseful mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Grace P. | 10/23/2013

    " I really love this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Martha | 9/27/2013

    " Another excellent Ruth Galloway mystery. As usual, the plot is engaging and gripping, but the real attraction in this series is the wonderful, well-rounded characters. Even minor characters have full personalities, and they all keep developing through the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 9/7/2013

    " Ruth Galloway is a fantastic addition to the mystery genre. Viewing mysteries through the lens of forensic archaeology is fascinating - a real treat. I've ordered book #4 from Amazon and am waiting eagerly to receive! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lavada | 6/20/2013

    " This is the third in a series and you do need to read them in order. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judie | 4/14/2013

    " The characters in this series are so normal that they could be my neighbours and that's what makes these books so special. The plot is good and I stayed up late reading, just had to see how it ended. Thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining which is exactly what I was looking for. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melanie | 2/4/2013

    " I usually enjoy the Ruth Galloway books - simple, neat little mysteries. However, this one took a while to get into and seemed to try to tackle too many story lines at once. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie Angel | 12/7/2012

    " I really like the characters, forensics, archaeology and history. will continue to read this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jayne-Marie Barker | 8/11/2012

    " I loved this but I have to say I preferred The Crossing Places and The Janus Stone. Even so, the story was engaging and interesting. The House at Seas End did leave us on a cliff hanger so I can't wait to read the fourth book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Evi | 6/26/2012

    " Human bones surface on a remote Norfolk beach ... more mystery solving by Ruth Galloway, forensic archaeologist, and her crew of mismatched friends. Great fun and keeps you on the edge of your seat. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen | 6/21/2012

    " Good, maybe not as gripping as the previous... the twist at the end was really *way* out there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy S | 5/27/2012

    " A mystery featuring Ruth, a forensic anthropologist who is called in to investigate when bones are unearthed on a beach. The mystery of the bones date back to WWII and a deadly secret that someone wants to keep secret, at any cost. Interesting characters and believable plot make for a good read. "
