The Lantern Men: Dr Ruth Galloway Mysteries 12 [9781787477551]

'My favourite current series' Val McDermid

Everything has changed for Dr Ruth Galloway.

She has a new job, home and partner, and is no longer North Norfolk police's resident forensic archaeologist. That is, until convicted murderer Ivor March offers to make DCI Nelson a deal. Nelson was always sure that March killed more women than he was charged with. Now March confirms this, and offers to show Nelson where the other bodies are buried - but only if Ruth will do the digging.

Curious, but wary, Ruth agrees. March tells Ruth that he killed four more women and that their bodies are buried near a village bordering the fens, said to be haunted by the Lantern Men, mysterious figures holding lights that lure travellers to their deaths.

Is Ivor March himself a lantern man, luring Ruth back to Norfolk? What is his plan, and why is she so crucial to it? And are the killings really over?

    I have read all of Elly Griffiths books now and they are very enjoyable. Look forward to the next one in the series. Although they are about murders I just love the story running through about Ruth and Nelson.

    Have read all of the Ruth Galloway books so far and they are great. This book doesn't disappoint. If you haven't read any of the series, you may like to do so. They are very enjoyable books.
