  • Elly Griffiths in top form

    The third of her series of crime novels featuring forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway shows Elly Griffiths in top form. The novel starts with the discovery of some bodies from at the foot of a crumbling cliff. Ruth is called in to help, and establishes that the dead were Germans killed during World War 2. Two people who were in the local Home Guard at the time die. As links get established, suspicion moves from one person to another, but always seems to come back to a house at the top of the cliff in danger of falling into the sea. Inevitably, danger threatens Ruth. Side by side with the crime plot are Ruth’s personal life as mother of a baby girl fathered by a policeman involved in the investigation, and her past in war-torn Yugoslavia helping to identify bodies. Unlike in many crime novels, the personal life dimensions are central to the novel and do not come across as unnecessary add-ons which distract from the real story. The crime plot itself comes over in a convincing way, and the focus on work of a forensic archaeologist gives an unusual extra interest to the series of books. Thoroughly recommended.

  • Bit too obvious

    After 3 books I'm starting to see how this author's mind works. But the real mystery for me is this: what wa powering the hammer drill on the fourth step?

  • Tedius read

    The simple murder plot is buried in trivial personal relationships.
