Publisher's Summary

Forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway has excavated a body from the grounds of Norwich Castle, a forbidding edifice that was once a prison. She believes the body may be that of infamous Victorian murderess Jemima Green. Called Mother Hook for her claw-like hand, Jemima was hanged in 1867 for the murder of five children in her care.
DCI Harry Nelson has no time for long-dead killers. Immersed in the case of three infants found dead, one after the other, in their King’s Lynn home, he’s convinced that a family member is responsible, though others on his team think differently. Then a child goes missing. Could the abduction be linked to the long-dead Mother Hook? Ruth is pulled into the case, and back towards Nelson.

Best book in the series so far

I really enjoyed the writing, plot development and characterisation in this book. Enjoyed hearing about Ruth's tv archaeologist experiences and her new love interest. I think it's been the best in the series so far and look forward to reading the next one. Well and truly comfortable now with change in narrator with this being Clare's second time reading this series.
