"There's nothing Ruth Galloway hates more than amateur archaeologists, but when a group of them stumble upon Bronze Age artifacts alongside a dead body, she finds herself thrust into their midst-and into the crosshairs of a string of murders circling ever closer"-- Provided by publisher.
North Norfolk. The Night Hawks, a group of metal detectorists, uncover a Bronze Age hoard on the beach-- near a recently deceased body. Not long after, the same group uncover the apparent murder-suicide of a scientist and his wife at the isolated Black Dog Farm. The farm has long been said to be haunted by the Black Shuck, a spectral hound that appears to people before they die. Ruth Galloway is suspicious of amateur archaeologists, but finds herself thrust into the midst of this group. And the further DCI Nelson probes into the cases, the more intertwined they become. -- adapted from jacket

Winner of a 2020 Edgar for her stand-alone The Stranger Diaries (2019), Griffiths returns to her Ruth Galloway series (after The Lantern Men, 2020), with Ruth back in Norfolk as the newly appointed head of archaeology at the local university. Ever the consummate professionalânothing bothers her more than amateur archaeologistsâRuth finds herself, at the request of DCI Nelson, the father of Ruth's daughter, Kate, investigating a group of metal detectorists, called the Night Hawks after they uncover Bronze Age artifacts along with a body that has washed ashore. The body count climbs with the discovery of a murder-suicide at a spooky old farmhouse long associated with the enormous, red-eyed Black Shuck, a dog who augurs death. Meanwhile, Kate, now 10, is more eager than ever to take on the world. This thirteenth time out for these characters brings a dramatic ending that leaves Ruth and Nelson's relationship even more complicated. Not to be missed by fans of two UK television series, Detectorists and Time Team, the latter of which is nothing short of a British institution. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
