WINNER OF THE 2016 CWA DAGGER IN THE LIBRARY. The discovery of a child's skeleton lays bare terrible secret's from Norwich's past in the second gripping mystery for Dr Ruth Galloway. A must-read for fans of Val McDermid and Ann Cleeves. 'The setting is enticingly atmospheric . . . a really intelligent murder story' Independent Dr Ruth Galloway's forensic skills are called upon when builders, demolishing an old house in Norwich, uncover the bones of a child - minus the skull - beneath a doorway. Is it some ritual sacrifice or just plain straightforward murder? Ruth links up with DCI Harry Nelson to investigate. The house was once a children's home. Nelson traces the Catholic priest who used to run the place. He tells him that two children did go missing forty years before - a boy and a girl. They were never found. When carbon dating proves that the child's bones predate the home and relate to a time when the house was privately owned, Ruth is drawn ever more deeply into the case. But as spring turns into summer it becomes clear that someone is desperate to put her off the scent by frightening her to death...

  1. Utmärkt bra!

    Elly Griffiths just can't go wrong. Är barnsligt förtjust i Ellys böcker och sträckläser om tillfället ges. Läser dem gärna på engelska, men måste säga att de är lika bra på svenska. Känslan är densamma, så kudos till översättaren!

Griffiths nimbly weaves the mythological aspects of her story . . . with the complicated life of her feisty heroine * Publishers Weekly * An enthralling page-turner that delights in complex characters * Kirkus Reviews * The tension never fails and it builds to a fantastically gripping climax * Eurocrime * Bone-chilling stuff * The Times * Griffiths's dryly humorous writing and the appeal of the two main characters make these books such a treat * Guardian * The setting is enticingly atmospheric. I closed the book wanting to know more . . . as well as feeling the satisfaction that a really intelligent murder story can give * Independent *
