The ghost fields

Griffiths, Elly, author

When a Norfolk farmer finds a World War Two plane, complete with skeleton, in a quarry, local archaeologists are called in. At first it all seems fairly straightforward - many American airmen were based in Norfolk and their empty hangers and airstrips, the so-called 'ghost fields', can be found all over East Anglia. But it's not that simple

Elly Griffiths writes ever-more ingenious detective stories with a powerful sense of place and a varied cast of sympathetic and unusual characters. Her heroine is a winner.
The Times||Griffiths weaves superstition and myth into her crime novels, skilfully treading a line between credulity and modern methods of detection
Sunday Times||An almost gothic plot, involving family feuds and a crumbling stately home, makes this one of the most vivid novels in a delightful series.
Sunday Times||The book's salty, desolate atmosphere of endless marsh and lonely, ancient sands... achieves a shivery aura of mystery you won't soon shake, one that laces past with present in the inescapable march of time.
BookPage||A gentle, meandering plot with a tense ending.
