This is the eleventh Ruth Galloway novel (after The Dark Angel, 2018) from the award-winning Griffiths, who is consistently very canny about conveying the uncanny. She always involves an element of the supernatural in her plotsâso appropriate to her setting in marshy East Anglia, a place that seems not quite earth, not quite seaâand this time around, it appears that forensic archaeologist Ruth and DCI Nelson are being haunted by a ghost from their past. Or so it seems when they receive threatening letters reminiscent of earlier missives from their first case together (The Crossing Places, 2009). But dead men don't write letters. Or do they? With plenty of warmth to counter the eeriness, all the usual distinctive charactersâwith a new addition who is quite the surpriseâpass their daily lives in delightful detail as the investigation wears on. Griffiths' fans who reach each of her inevitably complex endings wishing for still more will be pleased with a note in her acknowledgments: "I don't think I have nearly exhausted all the myths and legends of East Anglia, let alone its archaeological wonders." See ya soon, Ruth! Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
