Journalist Philip Dryden is interested by the discovery of a skeleton in a tunnel which led from a former prisoner of war camp . The body seems to have been using the tunnel to get into the camp rather than escape from it and it seems to have met its death by shooting.
The archaeologists excavating the area seem uninterested in the body and the police are even less interested. But Philip believes there is more to it than appears and his hunch is proved right when a much more modern body is discovered in the same trench.
I found this a totally absorbing story and I was interested in all the background information about prisoners of war in England. I love the setting of this novel, and the series - in and around Ely - and the author writes evocatively about it. I like the characters - the enigmatic Dryden himself with his tragic private life; Humph - the taxi driver who loves junk food and language tapes and Dryden's fellow staff members at The Crow - the local newspaper for which he writes.
If you like crime stories with interesting backgrounds and believable characters then try the Philp Dryden series.

The Moon TunnelReviewed in the United Kingdom on 15 November 2016

A gripping readReviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 October 2013
So much going on - but not so much that the plot is ever lost. Kelly is a master of interweaving peoples lives and problems and making each character believable. I had a picture in my head for each one from his descriptions. Also the sense of place is written from a deep knowledge and love of the area. Captivating. Can't wait to read the next!

Fascinating plot. Beautifully written.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 5 June 2014
I couldn't put this book down unless it was in the early hours of the morning when I was shattered. A super plot that is full of surprises & pithy prose. Absolutely up the usual Jim Kelly standard.

The Moon TunnelReviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 January 2013
I found the book a good read, however, sometimes I feel that the author depicts a depressing view of life in Norfolk/cambridge. It would be nice to be a bit uplifted sometimes.
