Ruth is shocked when she learns her old university friend Dan Golding has died in a house fire. But things turn sinister when Ruth receives a letter from Dan written before his death about a great archaeological find - the bones of legendary King Arthur, and Dan’s death is determined to be murder. Rut travels north to Blackpool to inspect the bones as the same time as DCI Nelson returns to his childhood home. But some of the bones have switched. Who is determined to keep the bones a secret?

A good read

Sometimes long in the tooth but then everything picks up once more. This is a different kind of series and it holds together. Kudos to the author.

A perfect rainy day book. ( )

I always enjoy this series, this titles reminds me of the first title or two that I discovered & read in a flurry.
The author did give me a scare... won't spoil anything, but ~whew~! ( )

Another one in a mystery series I float in and out of. I still enjoy the characters who are a nice combination of quirky and ordinary. Setting is the Norfolk County in England in current day. Nice 'n Easy on the brain during busy times. My Libby copy ran out and I had to wait for a second chance before reading the last 20 pages! ( )

'That strain again! It had a dying fall:
O, it came o'er my ear like the sweet sound
That breathes upon a bank of violets
Stealing and giving odour! Enough, no more;
Tis not so sweet now as it was before ...'
—Shakespeare, Twelfth Night
For John Maxted
