Product description

Review

Griffiths weaves superstition and myth into her crime novels, skilfully treading a line between credulity and modern methods of detectionSunday Times

A great seriesGuardian

Griffiths' excellent series is well informed and originalLiterary Review

Archaeology and crime often walk hand in hand in crime fiction, and seem a natural fit as they have in common both bones and quests for the truth. I've never before, however, read a crime novel in which the two blend as successfully as in The Crossing Places ... Elly Griffiths' characterization is as good as her writing, and I can't wait for the next in the series ― Shotsmag
