When a team of archaeologists investigating coastal erosion unearths six bodies buried at the foot of a north Norfolk cliff, forensics expert Ruth Galloway is immediately put on the case. Just back from maternity leave, Ruth finds it hard to focus, and even harder when she learns that DCI Nelson is the investigating officer — Ruth and Nelson have unfinished business. Forensic tests show that the bodies have lain hidden in the sand for fifty, even sixty years. Further discovery reveals that members of the local wartime Home Guard may be concealing a hideous crime.
When a body washes up on the beach, Ruth and Nelson realize that someone is still alive who will kill to keep hidden the gruesome secrets of the war years. Can they uncover the truth in time to stop another murder?
No descriptions found.
