Enjoyed this unconventional (overweight, older) heroine who through her expertise in bones gets drawn into a murder case. Good evocation of the north Norfolk coast. Will read more of these.

I'm not usually one for mystery, but this one was really quite good. Great read for a rainy day with a cup of hot tea.

A female archeologist is asked, by the police, to help identify some bones found in a saltmarsh. She soon finds herself involved in a mystery. Great book.
