'My favourite current series' Val McDermid

Everything has changed for Dr Ruth Galloway.

She has a new job, home and partner, and is no longer North Norfolk police's resident forensic archaeologist. That is, until convicted murderer Ivor March offers to make DCI Nelson a deal. Nelson was always sure that March killed more women than he was charged with. Now March confirms this, and offers to show Nelson where the other bodies are buried - but only if Ruth will do the digging.

Curious, but wary, Ruth agrees. March tells Ruth that he killed four more women and that their bodies are buried near a village bordering the fens, said to be haunted by the Lantern Men, mysterious figures holding lights that lure travellers to their deaths.

Is Ivor March himself a lantern man, luring Ruth back to Norfolk? What is his plan, and why is she so crucial to it? And are the killings really over?

The Lantern Men - Elly Griffiths

Elly Griffiths writes beautifully crafted and totally credible crime novels. She should be on everyones "must read" list of books? Love the Ruth Galloway series! They are always the sort of book that you never want to finish! I am only sorry that we will have to wait until May and October to read the next books by this author!

Love it

Dr Ruth Galloway is one of my all-time favourite protagonists so my rating isn’t completely objective! If you love Ruth as much as I do, you are sure to love this book. If you haven’t read everything else in this series, you should!!
