This is the latest in the Ruth Galloway series and it’s a good one. Two bodies are discovered in an ancient grave. One is centuries old and the other a local girl who disappeared 30 years ago. Ruth is the archeologist working on the dig when the bodies are found. DCI Nelson, Ruth’s sometimes lover and father of her child, is in charge of the case and there is the usual tension between the two. The story does refer back to a previous case in The Crossing Place, so you might want to read that first.
