A crime from the past.
A murder from the future.
DS Fiona Griffiths is bored but then comes news of a chilling crime. Not just a murder, but a decapitation, and a murder scene laid out like a gruesome crossword clue.
The victim was an archaeologist excavating a nearby iron-age site. Genial, respected, well-liked – why would anyone want to kill her? As Fiona investigates, she finds a crime so bizarre that getting her superiors to take it seriously is going to be a hell of a job.
Can Fiona stop the crime before it’s committed? Or will she put her own future at stake?
Praise for the Fiona Griffiths series:
Chilling and atmospheric. A masterpiece.
