About the Book:
I have enjoyed reading this series and watching Ruth grow and change. Her relationship with Nelson was always complex and remains so. I have found Cathbad a bit of a strange character, especially his Druid aspect. Nonetheless, I have enjoyed getting to know them all and experiencing their interactions. I also like all the references and visits to historical and archaeological places. I have learned much from this series.
This is a cold case mystery when a skeleton is found behind a bricked wall. There are suspects galore so Nelson has his work cut out for him. And then Cathbad goes missing. While most of the novel is tedious investigative procedure, there is a bit of suspense too. And what a suitable ending, coming full circle to the events of the initial novel.
This novel, and the entire series, is a good one for readers who like mysteries with a deep dive into characters and their relationships.
