Summary

Forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway is called in to investigate when builders, demolishing a large old house in Norwich to make way for a housing development, uncover the bones of a child beneath a doorway - minus the skull. Is it some ritual sacrifice or just plain straightforward murder? DCI Harry Nelson would like to find out - and fast.

A real page turner!

A great story that has likeable characters and enough twists and turns to keep me listening. Now have the full set of this author and all are good!

Very enjoyable

I haven't read these books in order but it doesn't seem to matter. This was a good story and the interaction between characters was fascinating. The narrator read well but some of the accents were a bit off and she doesn't read male voices very well. It seemed a bit odd to have a number of Irish accents in Norfolk, but it didn't spoil the story. The ending was over dramatic but I enjoyed the book.

Return to Salt Marsh & Mysterious Archeology

I just love the way Griffiths brought the characters back from book one in the series as old friends. They are people that have been changed by their experiences together in the previous book. Often I find in a series that the main characters are too static as personalities. Not so with this author. Even better, this book continues to develop these interesting, flawed but fascinating people without missing a beat. This installment picks up just months after book one finished. Probably best to start with book one if you are new to the series. The books do build on one another and it is assumed that the reader already knows much detail that is not reviewed. A good thing-- as I dislike a great deal of recap in a series.

The mystery and backstory were as well thought out, engaging and as spooky as they were in book one. It was also funny in spots! I really enjoyed this listen and loved how the whole tale played out. Creepiness, brooding wild sea coast, archeology and history all perfectly intertwine to make a really enjoyable listen. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. Really good and recommended if you enjoy a good mystery.

My favorite of the series.

I've listened to all of this series but not in order. Now I await each new episode.

It's easy listening, there's always a mystery, Ruth Galloway is a very independent woman, and there are complicated interactions in a rural setting.

The narration is well done.
