Note: This is the second book in the Ruth Galloway series. Start with The Crossing Places. This review may contain minor spoilers.
Ruth and Nelson are back!
When a dig exploring Roman ruins beneath a former children’s home uncovers a child’s skeleton, Nelson calls in Ruth once again. Why? The bones are missing the skull. Could this be an ancient ritual or a grisly recent crime?
When it is discovered that the bones are less than a hundred years old, Nelson is drawn into the world of the Catholic children’s home, a missing boy and a girl and confronts his own lapsed Catholicism.
And, of course, someone doesn’t want them to find out.
Once again, Griffiths creates an engaging complex story filled with a cast of characters. Cathbad also returns, with his sudden appearances now deemed comforting rather than sinister! Griffiths’ wry humour
