The start of an exciting new crime series featuring quirky, tart-tongued archaeologist Ruth Galloway as she investigates a child''s bones found on a nearby beach, thought to be the remains of a little girl who went missing ten years before.
Annotation:
Elly Griffiths launches a thrilling new mystery series starring Ruth Galloway, an English archaeologist who lives and works in a mystical region known as the Saltmarsh, near Norfolk. When the skeleton of a child is discovered on a nearby beach, Galloway is called in to assist Harry Nelson, the local chief inspector, with the identification process. Though Nelson suspects the bones are those of a young girl named Lucy Downey, who vanished 10 years ago, it turns out that the skeleton predates Lucy's disappearance-by about 2,000 years. When another little girl goes missing, Galloway must somehow connect the dots between the ancient bones, the missing children, and a series of eerie letters which hint at the renewal of an archaic sacrificial rite.
