have loved this series since the first book and the latest book in the series did not disappoint. I love Dr Ruth Galloway’s character once again. I always come back to the series because her. This book offered the suspense and mystery that I love and the ending completely surprised me. This is the 12th book in the series and I love to continue reading about some of my favorite characters. The only problem I had was that this book takes place two years after the last book so I was a little confused and wondering if I had missed something while reading the first few chapters. Thank you to @netgalleyand @hmhbooks for the ARC. If you haven’t heard of this series then I highly encourage you to check it out. This book will be published July 14th. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫.
Everything has changed for Ruth Galloway. She has a new job, home, and partner, and she 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 travelers 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?
