Island of Bones is Imogen Robertson's third novel featuring Gabriel Crowther and Harriet Westerman. Two very different people, with very different backgrounds and characters, yet despite being something of an odd couple their characters compliment each other.

This adventure is set in Cumbria in 1783. Crowther and Westerman are asked to use their combined investigative skills when an unexplained body is found in the tomb of the Earl of Greta. There are soon more mysteries to uncover and Crowther is linked closely to this case - he actually owned the land when the body was found for a time. He inherited it after his father was murdered by his brother.

This is an enjoyable read with ghost stories, strange and outlandish characters and folklore adding to the mix. Imogen Robertson is a very engaging writer, the story skips along at a fair pace, is never predictable and is very absorbing.

Existing fans of this series will not be disappointed and new readers will soon become hooked too.
