Notes:
Forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway has excavated a body from the grounds of Norwich Castle, a forbidding edifice that was once a prison. She believes the body may be that of infamous Victorian murderess Jemima Green. Called Mother Hook for her claw-like hand, Jemima was hanged in 1867 for the murder of five children in her care. DCI Harry Nelson

The Dr. Ruth Galloway series by Elly Griffiths has been a welcome distraction during the past few difficult months of lockdown. This is a 'gentle' thriller, featuring Ruth, a fantastic archaeologist who is also a single mother with a child fathered by Nelson, a colleague in the local police force in Norfolk, with whom she often has occasion to work with her speciality of the identification and aging of bones is required. Ruth has appealing qualities which for me are quirky and reminiscent of Bridget Jones and the storylines are, as here, a clever mix of puzzles past and present, with a cast of increasingly familiar characters developing throughout the series. If you enjoy a thriller without too much violence and gore but plenty of suspense and background interest then I think you will like this book. Star rating: 4 out of 5 Recommend? Yes
