Publisher's Summary

It is Halloween night, and the local museum in King's Lynn is preparing for an unusual event - the opening of a coffin containing the bones of a medieval bishop. But when Ruth Galloway arrives to supervise, she finds the museum's curator lying dead beside the coffin. It is only a matter of time before she and DI Nelson cross paths once more, as he is called in to investigate. Soon the museum's wealthy owner lies dead in his stables, too. These two deaths could be from natural causes - but Nelson isn't convinced.

Once again Ruth Galloway gets caught up in solving a crime she never wanted to get involved with which brings her in contact with her love. All sorts of lovely twists and turns throughout as usual to keep the reader interested with characters who are totally believable. And thankfully a decent narrated was used who is capable of voicing the different characters making it so much easier to listen to. I have read the first 3 books in this series and none of them have disappointed - this a series I will definitely continue following

Another intriguing story

I'm glad to say that my misgivings in my review of Book 3 of the series were premature and the author has created another intriguing and interesting story that isn't a repetition of the same formula as the preceding books. Most of the characters of previous stories return and part of the pleasure is finding out what happens to them next. I remain convinced that these books are best listened to in chronological order. There's more mysticism in this book as Cathbad, the Druid friend of forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway, plays a big part in the story. A minor criticism is that an author who takes care to get her scientific facts correct, makes the error of thinking that viruses and fungal infections are treated with antibiotics.

I'm enjoying the series and am galloping through them in my eagerness to follow the lives of the characters who seem so real.

The narrator does the author proud in bringing the characters to life and is consistent in her accents across the books.
