The Crossing Places
by Elly Griffiths
From The Jacket:When a child's bones are found near an ancient henge in the wild saltmarshes of Norfolk's north coast, Ruth Galloway, a university lecturer in forensic archaeology, is asked to date them by DCI Harry Nelson. He thinks they may be the bones of a child called Lucy who has been missing for ten years. It's a cold case he has never been able to forget, in part because he's been getting creepy letters about Lucy ever since her disappearance from someone who quotes the Bible and Shakespeare and includes references to ritual and sacrifice. When Ruth proves that the bones are those of an Iron Age girl who died over two thousand years ago, she supposes that this is the end of the story. She's wrong: it's just the beginning of a nightmare. The Crossing Placesis a gripping story about how the past, even the distant past, can have a deadly hold on the present. It marks the beginning of a stunning new mystery series, and the debut of an intelligent, salty tongued sleuth who is all the more likeable for being vulnerable in ways she's the last to recognize.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved that the main character is not the kind of perfect that only happens in movies and books. She is very real and a character you can relate to with a great personality. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
