Kindle Ebook By Elly Griffiths ঩ So you live out Saltmarsh way DI Nelson says, pulling out across the traffic with a squeal of tires He drives like a maniac.Yes, says Ruth, feeling defensive though she doesnt know why New Road.New Road Nelson lets out a bark of laughter I thought only twitchers lived out there.Well, the warden of the bird sanctuary is one of my neighbours, says Ruth, struggling to remain polite while keeping one foot clamped on an imaginary brake.I wouldnt fancy it, says Nelson Too isolated.I like it, says Ruth I did a dig there and never left.A dig Archaeology She turns to Nelson We were looking for a henge.A henge Like Stonehenge Yes All it means is a circular bank with a ditch around it Usually with posts inside the circle.I read somewhere that Stonehenge is just a big sundial A way of telling the time.Well, we dont know exactly what it was for, says Ruth, but its safe to say that it involves ritual of some kind.Nelson shoots a strange look at her.Ritual Yes, worship, offerings, sacrifices.Sacrifices echoes Nelson He seems genuinely interested now the faintly condescending note has disappeared from his voice.Well, sometimes we find evidence of sacrifices Pots, spears, animal bones.What about human bones Do you ever find human bones Yes, sometimes human bones.There is silence and then Nelson says, Funny place for one of those henge things, isnt it Right out to sea.This wasnt sea then Landscape changes Only ten thousand years ago this country was still linked to the continent You could walk from here to Scandinavia.Youre joking No Kings Lynn was once a huge tidal lake Thats what Lynn means Its the Celtic word for lake.Nelson turns to look sceptically at her, causing the car to swerve alarmingly Ruth wonders if he suspects her of making the whole thing up.So if this area wasnt sea, what was it Flat marshland We think the henge was on the edge of a marsh.Still seems a funny place to build something like that.Marshland is very important in prehistory, explains Ruth Its a kind of symbolic landscape We think that it was important because its a link between the land and the sea, or between life and death.Nelson snorts Come again Well, marsh isnt dry land and it isnt sea Its a sort of mixture of both We know it was important to prehistoric man.How do we know Weve found objects left on the edge of marshes Votive hoards.Votive Offerings to the Gods, left at special or sacred places And sometimes bodies Have you heard of bog bodies Lindow Man Might have, says Nelson cautiously.Bodies buried in peat are almost perfectly preserved, but some people think the bodies were buried in the bogs for a purpose To appease the Gods.Nelson shoots her another look but says nothing They are approaching the Saltmarsh now, driving up from the lower road towards the visitor car park.The car park is empty apart from a solitary police car The occupant gets out as they approach and stands there, looking cold and fed up.Doctor Ruth Galloway, Nelson introduces briskly, Detective Sergeant Clough.DS Clough nods glumly Ruth gets the impression that hanging about on a windy marshland is not his favourite way of passing the time Nelson, though, looks positively eager, jogging slightly on the spot like a racehorse in sight of the gallops He leads the way along a gravel path marked Visitors Trail They pass a wooden hide, built on stilts over the marsh It is empty, apart from some crisp wrappers and an empty can of Coke lying on the surrounding platform.Nelson, without stopping, points at the litter and barks, Bag it Ruth has to admire his thoroughness, if not his manners It occurs to her that police work must be rather similar to archaeology She, too, would bag anything found at a site, labelling it carefully to give it a context She, too, would be prepared to search for days, weeks, in the hope of finding something significant She, too, she realises with a sudden shiver, is primarily concerned with death.Ruth is out of breath before they find the spot marked out with the blue and white police tape that reminds her of traffic accidents Nelson is now some ten yards ahead, hands in pockets, head forward as if sniffing the air Clough plods behind him, holding a plastic bag containing the rubbish from the hide.Beyond the tape is a shallow hole, half filled by muddy water Ruth ducks under the tape and kneels down to look Clearly visible in the rich mud are human bones.How did you find this she asks.It is Clough who answers Member of the public, walking her dog Animal actually had one of the bones in its mouth.Did you keep it The bone, I mean.Its at the station.Ruth takes a quick photo of the site and sketches a brief map in her notebook This is the far west of the marsh she has never dug here before The beach, where the henge was found, is about two miles away to the east Squatting down on the muddy soil, she begins laboriously bailing out the water, using a plastic beaker from her excavation kit Nelson is almost hopping with impatience.Cant we help with that he asks.No, says Ruth shortly.When the hole is almost free from water, Ruths heart starts to beat faster Carefully she scoops out another beakerful of water and only then reaches into the mud and exposes something that is pressed flat against the dark soil.Well Nelson is leaning eagerly over her shoulder.Its a body, says Ruth hesitantly, but Slowly she reaches for her trowel She mustnt rush things She has seen entire excavations ruined because of one moments carelessness So, with Nelson grinding his teeth beside her, she gently lifts away the sodden soil A hand, slightly clenched, wearing a bracelet of what looks like grass, lies exposed in the trench From the Hardcover edition.Forensic archeologist and academic Ruth Galloway is a captivating amateur sleuth an inspired creation I identified with her insecurities and struggles, and cheered her on The Saltmarsh where Ruth lives in isolation conjures a background of intense menace propelling this gripping story to a surprising and terrifying ending This is a book rich in plot, character and setting and heralds an exciting new voice on the crime scene Louise Penny
