About this deal

In the past he has read about people in fires being 'beaten back by the heat' and deep down he has always thought, 'Wimps. I like the introduction to Nelson' family (his mum is a hoot and bonds quickly with Cathbarth) as well as his old "stomping" ground and colleagues.

This book is a mystery that pertains to the legend of King Arthur, or the Raven King and his supposed bones. Before he died, it seems, Felix Vodyanov was linked to a passenger ferry that sank in 1994, an even earlier U. The discovery of a cannibalized skeleton in a Norfolk underground tunnel catapults forensic archeologist Ruth Galloway into her engrossing ninth case (after 2016’s The Woman in Blue). She leaves behind no memories worth keeping: her husband is dead, her boss has made no bones about disliking her, and she’s looking forward to new responsibilities and the higher salary underwritten by North Dakota’s sudden oil boom.Now Shona is in a relationship with Phil, Ruth’s boss, and they live together after he left his wife.

Although King Arthur’s existence has been disputed, he is still very much “alive” to the people of England, Scotland, Cornwall, and Wales. But the Ruth/Nelson and Judy/Cathabad (and for that matter Ruth/Cathbad) dynamics still work, the next in the series is set in Norwich Castle (the favourite museum of my childhood) and anyway I already bought the first 10 books – so onwards and (hopefully) upwards. He and Ruth had a mild flirtation in a previous book, but nothing came out of it because Ruth’s and his own situations were complicated. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. Ruth Galloway’s quiet routine of teaching and raising her daughter Kate, the fruit of her short affair with DCI Harry Nelson, is interrupted by the shocking news of her university friend Dan Golding’s death.This was a good opportunity for a different setting and the writing is great but I'm looking forward to getting back to Norfolk in the next novel.
