|The Crossing Places|
Genre: mystery set in Norfolk, UK
A child's bones are discovered near the site of a pre-historic henge on the north Norfolk coast, and the police ask local forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway to date them
Ruth is a lecturer at the local university, recognized as as expert in her field. She lives alone in a small cottage at the edge of a saltmarsh near the sea. Attracted to the local deputy chief inspector of police, Ruth is torn regarding her affections, as DCI Harry Nelson is married with two grown daughters. The two work together to solve the crimes and become romantically involved for one fateful night, in spite of his married status.
The personal and professional life of the unusual character, Ruth Galloway, pulls the reader in, and I found myself reading the second, third, and fourth books in the series, just to keep up with her life, personal and otherwise. There are several books to go in the series yet!
Thanks to Quercus for a review copy of this book.
