London: Quercus, 2010. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 9781849161589 Signed by Author SIGNED BY AUTHOR without dedication to title page. A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. First Edition, First Printing. 327 pages. The second crime novel featuring Ruth Galloway the forensic archaeologist. Ruth Galloway is called in to investigate when builders, demolishing a large old house in Norwich, uncover the skeleton of a child - minus the skull - beneath a doorway. Is it some ritual sacrifice or just plain straightforward murder? DCI Harry Nelson must find out - and fast. It turns out that the house was once a children's home, and Nelson meets the Catholic priest who used to run the place. He tells him that two children did go missing 40 years before - a boy and a girl, and they were never found. Carbon dating proves that the child's bones predate the children's home and relate to a time when the house was privately owned. Ruth is drawn more deeply into the case, but as spring gives way to summer it becomes clear that someone is trying very hard to put her off the scent by frightening her half to death.
