Another book featuring the forensic archaelogist, Dr. Ruth Galloway. In this one, she is once again called to determine the age of some human bones found. They are the remains found of six people because of coastline erosion. As suspected, they are not a matter for archaelogists, but for the police. In the course of the investigation, she meets up with an old friend, Tatjana and has to make some decisions about the birth of her daughter, Kate. Ties to earlier historical events give this story an unusual flavor. I have to admit, what I enjoyed was picturing the place where it happened. Broughton is a town near Cromer, England. I spent a week in Cromer in 2005 and still have fond memories of the place. It's a bonus when a location of a book brings back fond memories, even if it is a murder mystery.
