'Galloway now seems as real as Marple and Morse' The Times


Dr Ruth Galloway is called in when a child's bones are discovered near a prehistoric site on the north Norfolk salt marshes. Are they the remains of a local girl who disappeared ten years earlier - or are the bones much older?

DCI Harry Nelson refuses to give up the hunt for the missing girl. Since she vanished, someone has been sending him creepy anonymous notes about ritual sacrifice. He knows that Ruth's expertise and experience could help him finally to put this case to rest.

But when a second child goes missing, Ruth finds herself in danger from a killer who knows she's getting ever closer to the truth.

What a story

This story is amazing the character developments are amazing, the story is one you can’t stop reading until you’ve finished it….

Great read.

Fast paced, straight into it with a vulnerable, likeable lead character. Good story that twisted and turned. Ready for the next one!
