"Galloway now seems as real as Marple and Morse"

This is the 13th case for the good doctor, who is now head of department at the University of North Norfolk. Admin and awkward staff only add to her problems when, the body count rising, Nelson asks for her help once more. Luckily for us, Elly Griffiths has perfected the formula that combines an intriguing mystery with emotional conflict. Her sense of place, and sense of humour, remain undimmed. It helps, of course, that she is a fine writer. In a graveyard scene we watch “the hearse drive away with autumn leaves swirling up around it like funeral confetti”.
