Great addition to the series though, with a another cliffhanger ‘now what will he do?’ ending. Sadly Ruth still, after all these years and cases, hasn’t gained enough confidence to stand up for herself a lot of the time. Having replaced Phil as Head of Archaeology she’s only too willing to allow a new, rather odd, lecturer to tell her what to do. But if Ruth was a supercool Super Jo clone, there wouldn’t be much of a story, would there?
This book successfully blends Bronze Age discoveries with modern Detectorists (rather different from Mckenzie Crook and Toby Jones), murder of course, and the personal lives of the regular cast
Without giving spoilers, this one has a great twist - well 2 actually. After congratulating myself at sussing out the murderer based on a surname, the denouement proved me wrong. “Odd”, I thought, “didn’t see that coming, but it doesn’t quite work for me either.” That’s because it’s a red (well, faintly pink) herring with another twist following right behind.
And talking of twists... please tell me I’m not alone in waiting for a mysterious Neil Topham connection. Not a very common name but shared both by one of the Nighthawks and by the poor guy who died at the start of A Roomful of Bones. Couldn’t work out the connection. Not surprising, seeing there wasn’t one
So thank you, Elly Griffiths. Thanks for writing this in lockdown and giving us all something to look forward to. Thanks for bringing these well loved characters back to life and proving yet again that I’ll never suss out the murderer before you tell me.
Here’s to No 14....
Almost immediately she is contacted to consult on an unexpected beach find by a group of metal detectorists. This group of enthusiasts have also found a more recent corpse nearby; was he an asylum seeker who has come to grief or something else? What's happening on that isolated farm?
Nelson is still resisting retirement and blocking Judy's chance of a local promotion and failing to resolve his complicated family life. Ruth is still exhausted by the daily grind and correcting everyone who gets her daughter's name wrong.
Cathbad remains a druidic constant in community life, linking the metal detectorists, local historians, police and archaeological experts together.
Despite the rollocking plot and sense of real peril, this series remains warm and wryly funny. Norfolk's bleak coastal beauty continues to draw the reader in and the characters are completely realistic, all just trying to make it to home time.
Others have summarised the quite complex plot; I did not guess the villain, like others but this never bothers me; I tend to go with the flow of the unfolding story but do like it if the baddies are not too obvious so I was pretty happy with this.
I have read one of Elly Griffiths ‘ other series and it did not gel with me at all and definitely nothing like this. I think her writing in the Ruth Galloway books flows extremely well; there are no clunky bits, which tend to make me abandon what I am reading and the present tense device works well. Great, recognisable characters, excellent sense of time and place, interesting plots and always the humour. Keep writing Elly!
