Laura P. said:
This book is of the best of this series so far. There is a little more actual forensic anthropology than in the last book and there are the usual parallel mysteries; one from the current day and one from the past. It’s a cracking good mystery but it’s the characters that really shine in this series. The main character is not the stereotypical sleuthing scientist. She’s very much a regular person, not necessarily smarter or more daring than anyone else. There are complicated relationships, awkward moments and moments of real warmth along with plenty of humor. I hope Elly Griffiths keeps this series going a long time.
