Ruth's old friend Dan Golding thinks he has made a discovery that will change archaeology forever - but he needs Ruth's help. Then, Dan is killed in a fire, leaving Ruth with one clue: the tomb of the Raven King. DCI Nelson is also rediscovering the past. 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. Ruth is drawn into the mystery, and where she goes, so does her daughter, Kate. This time, it's not just Ruth's life at risk.… (mais)

I suppose we are all familiar with the scenario, thinking back to our time at school or university and the circle of friends we formed, and from whom we imagine we will never drift apart – it just couldn’t possibly happen. And then it happens. Time races by, and suddenly you look back and realise that another handful of years has slipped by, and you still haven’t managed to get around to contacting old so and so, despite all your resolutions and recurrent vows to be better organised and catch up with old friends. But then, they haven’t managed to look you up, either, so perhaps you can put it aside for the moment and maybe get around to it later in the year.

I am slightly reassured to find that I am not alone in this. Forensic Archaeologist Dr Ruth Galloway seems to be in the same boat, and if something is good enough for her, then it is certainly good enough for me. She is brought up short when she hears from one old university friend with whom she has kept in touch, who calls her to let her know that another of their fellow undergraduates, Dan Golding, has died, having been caught in a fatal house fire. Dan had been one of the brighter stars in their undergraduate firmament, and like Ruth had continued to work in the field of archaeology, ending up at Pendle University. Ruth is shocked by the news that such a vivacious man is now dead, and is amazed that she hadn’t made any effort to contact him in the twenty years since their student days. She is, therefore, even more surprised when a couple of days later she receives a letter from Dan, that had been sent via her university address. This letter tells her of a potential tumultuous discovery that he has made on a recent archaeological dig, but also lets her know that he is scared by something relating to it.

Ruth casually mentions Dan’s death to DCI Harry Nelson, whose past investigations into historic murders she has helped, and mentions that Dan had seemed to be scared. Pendle falls within Nelson’s old patch, and conveniently, he and his wife have returned to Blackpool for a few days on holiday, visiting old haunts. Nelson casually contacts his counterpart on the Blackpool CID unit to enquire whether anything further is known about Golding’s death. His former colleagues advise him that the death is being investigated as murder, as the fire appears to have been started deliberately, and the house had been locked from the outside.

Meanwhile, Ruth has been asked by Dan’s head of department at Pendle if she can spend any time to look over Dan’s find, and apply some of her forensic archaeology skills to the remains that had been excavated. As it is the middle of the student vacation, Ruth is able to accept the invitation, not knowing what she is getting into. Pendle University is a struggling institution. Funding is tight, and it has also been subject to a spate of white supremacist attacks.

I could say a lot more, but to people not already familiar with this series, my attempts to explain some of the deeper context behind the novel might serve mor to confuse than to enlighten. I am confident, however, that this book would work well for any reader who is not familiar with the principal characters and the particularly complicated web of relationships between them. For those of us among the cognoscenti, it is just as good as we have come to expect, and additionally entertaining. ( )

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?

Love this ( )

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. ( )

'That strain again! It had a dying fall:

Tis not so sweet now as it was before ...'
