The Ghost Fields: Ruth Galloway, Book 7 (Unabridged)
Norfolk is experiencing a July heat wave when a construction crew unearths a macabre discovery - a buried World War II plane with the pilot still inside. Forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway quickly realizes that the skeleton couldn't possibly be the pilot, and DNA tests identify the man as Fred Blackstock, a local aristocrat who had been reported dead at sea.
When the remaining members of the Blackstock family learn about the discovery, they seem strangely frightened by the news. Events are further complicated by a TV company that wants to make a film about Norfolk's deserted air force bases, the so-called Ghost Fields, which have been partially converted into a pig farm run by one of the younger Blackstocks. As production begins, Ruth notices a mysterious man lurking close to the Blackstocks' family home. Then human bones are found on the family's pig farm.
Can the team outrace a looming flood to find a killer?
Fast pace edge of seat suspense
I enjoyed the fast pace and twists and turns of the story and all the characters old and new.
It all lead very nicely to a particularly dramatic climax. I was pleased that it was full of suspense.
I think the author extremely clever to be able to surprise me at the end as to who the killer was. Nicely done.
