He meets his friend Sandy Macleod, now at Blackpool CID, who tells him there are mysterious circumstances surrounding Dan's death. A Neo-Nazi group at Dan's University has been making threats and could be involved. Many of Dan's colleagues seem fearful and have secrets to hide.

This was my first Elly Griffiths novel, so I came in quite a way into a series of mysteries. Regular readers might be on the ball with the characters but for some of this novel I got people muddled up. This thriller begins with the murder of a friend of Ruth's from university, Dan, also an archaeologist in Lancashire. After receiving a mysterious letter from Dan, Ruth is called up to Dan's university to examine some bones he found and so the action moves to Lancashire as Ruth travels there with her daughter and her friend Cathbad. The plot thickens around legends about King Arthur and university politics as a white supremacist group at the university is uncovered. The novel has plenty of interest and entertainment and a dramatic finale. The characters came alive and their complex and interwoven relationships began to make sense. ( )

The back story is what keeps you - it’s rather hard to keep up with the plot twists / characters of each book. Wonder if there’s a book six yet?

I really like the investigations, but I'm so incredibly tired of Ruth talking about how heavy she is, how ugly she is, etc. I get that she's insecure and I'm not saying that she shouldn't ever comment on it, but holy goodness.

Also, her relationship with Harry Nelson is just weird. They need to deal with that. Ruth needs to pull a Cathbad.

I already know I'll keep reading the series, but I'll keep skimming the bits with Nelson/her self-shaming. ( )

This all gets a bit odd at various points along the way, but it's exciting enough. The story is set in & near Blackpool and two strands of story take Ruit & Nelson back that way. He's supposed to be on holiday, but has ended up getting in touch with his old buddy, Sandy, and is actually working, but not in charge (which doesn;t go down well). Ruth is there to investigate some bones that, it turns out, might be King Arthur's, and that there's something interestng about them that some people are not too keen on getting out. Along the way we have a neo nazi group and a spin off that's obsessed with King Arthur - at all gets pretty unpleasant pretty quickly. The two stories come together in the body (not a spoiler, he's dead in Chapter 1) of Dan, an archeology lecturer at the fictional Pendle University (I've been to Pendle, this is far-fetched!). Dan's death is suspicious and so the police and the bones end up being entwinned. It has an interesting surmise in that it is entirely plausible and yet you can see why those of a certain persuasion would have such a problem with it. It also takes us a bit further along the Nelson/Ruth storyline. Sandy spots that something's up, how long can they all keep playing the game... but that's why it's a series. ( )
