Norfolk is experiencing a July heatwave when a construction crew unearths a macabre discovery - a buried WWII plane with the pilot still inside. Forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway quickly realizes that the skeleton couldn't possibly be the pilot, and DNA tests identify the man as Fred Blackstock, a local aristocrat who had been reported dead at sea. When the remaining members of the Blackstock family learn about the discovery, they seem strangely frightened by the news. Events are further complicated by a TV company that wants to make a film about Norfolk's deserted air force bases, the so-called Ghost Fields, which have been partially converted into a pig farm run by one of the younger Blackstocks. As production begins, Ruth notices a mysterious man lurking close to the Blackstocks' family home. Then human bones are found on the family's pig farm. Can the team outrace a looming flood to find a killer?… (mais)

Ein neuer Fall für Ruth Galloway und Detective Chief Inspector Harry Nelson. Bei Erdarbeiten stößt ein Baggerführer auf ein in der Erde verborgenes Flugzeugcockpit aus dem zweiten Weltkrieg - in dem noch die Leiche eines Piloten liegt. Die Ermittlungen werden nicht unbedingt einfacher dadurch, dass ein Fernsehteam aus Amerika eine Dokumentation über den Fall drehen möchte.

Elly Griffiths gelingt es, jeden neuen Fall einzigartig zu machen und ihn geschickt mit der Gegend von Norfolk zu verknüpfen. Auch dieser Roman ist wieder atmosphärisch dicht und sprachlich gelungen geschildert und enthält genau die richtige Prise Humor.

Allerdings beschränkt sie die Entwicklung der Figuren für meinen Geschmack ein wenig zu sehr auf das Auf und Ab in deren jeweiligen Liebesleben. Ansonsten bleiben sie zwar interessant, aber leider auch etwas statisch. Trotzdem bin ich gespannt auf den nächsten Roman der Reihe. ( )

She's done it again: all the clues were there... why didn't I tag the murderer during the early chapters?

Elly Griffiths always plays fair: there are no characters introduced in the penultimate chapter who turn out to be the murderer. Still she fools me on a regulars basis; and I love it!

Always a great way to end the day. ( )

I am becoming intrigued by this series, and wonder how long Elly Griffiths can maintain the high quality. In too many other series that I have initially enjoyed, the writer seems to have run out of steam or fallen back on simples rehashing of the interplay between characters, leaving me frustrated after a few volumes.

Certainly this book, which I believe is the seventh in the sequence, is just as gripping and enjoyable as its predecessors. Once again, she manages to achieve a joyous blend of strong characters, vivid settings, engaging plot and what I presume is accurate archaeological context (and if it isn’t then I suppose she earns more marks for convincing fabrication!).

The ghost fields of the title are the disused airfields from the Second World War that were strewn all over East Anglia and the fens. When a tract of open and is bought by a local property developer, the initial land clearing work uncovers an almost intact American fighter plane from the War. More surprisingly still, the plane contains a body, but it soon transpires that, firstly, it is not the pilot, and secondly that, rather than dying from wounds sustained in the crash landing, he had been shot at fairly close range.

As a consequence of her occasional consultative work with the local police, Dr Ruth Galloway, lecturer in archaeology at the University of North Norfolk, is called in to look at the remains, with a view to dating them. Meanwhile, she is engaged in a more conventional archaeological dig which has uncovered an ancient body. Intriguingly, a DNA check as part of a much wider project shows that the old body shares a significant amount of genetic material with the long-established local family on whose land the more recent body has been found. Similar tests on the body in the plane throw up more unexpected results.

As always with the Ruth Galloway books, much of the enjoyment derives from Elly Griffiths’ management of the various tensions between the central characters. New twists emerge on that front, as well, and I was pleased to find Cathdbad, local Druid leader, still playing his part, turning up when least expected, despite falling prey to a degree of domesticity arising from his complicated family position

I am looking forward to the next instalment. ( )

The next in the Ruth Galloway series. IN this one, a digger driver uncovers a WW2 plan in a field being prepared for housing. He stopps to investigate and gets the fright of his life when he finds the pilot inside. Only it's not quite as simple as that. Turns out that it's not the pilot, it was atail gunner of a bomber who had been shot down over the sea a week before this plane crashed, and the dental records & DNA prove that. So where's the pilot been all these years? Especially when Ruth comes along and excavates, discoveing that he hadn't been in the plane for almost 70 years, but had been buried somewhere else first. The plane is on land that used to belong to the Blackstock family, a down at heel branch of the landed gentry who have owned the hall since, well, forever.
It all gets complicated, as these things do. The story of who the pilot is and where he has been in the meantime is followed by a family funeral that draws Blackstocks from near and far and results in an attack on one of them. That's fillowed up by a couple mnore attacks, only it is fortunate that our attacker is more ethnusuastic than efficient.
There's a lot going on in here. Kate starts school, Ruth generally frets about her, teh delctable frank make a re-appearance and there's some dodgy dealings that are a bit close to home (saying no more).
The downside of this one if that it does rely on confession to seal the deal. Nelson may have his gut tell him who dun it, but it takes a went night and a confession to bring it to the open.
It's all great fun. ( )

Lättlyssnad mysdeckare på engelska landsbygden. Sjunde boken i serien om Ruth Galloway och det blir lite för mycket av samma sak. Känns som om Griffith skrivit om samma bok sju gånger. Det är ungefär samma handling i samtliga böcker hittills. ( )

I hate the dreadful hollow behind the little wood,
Its lips in the field above are dabbled with blood-red heath.
The red-ribb'd ledges drip with a silent horror of blood.
And Echo there, whatever is ask'd her, answers "Death."
