When Maggie Kaye and Sam Dee join the Bishops Well archaeological dig, they are as surprised as everyone else to unearth a body that was buried there less than fifty years ago. It can’t possibly be the remains of an ancient Celt.
Maggie, with her usual flair – and psychic intuition – is convinced that there is more to this discovery than meets the eye. And some Bishops residents seem to know a lot more about the case than they are willing to let on.
But nobody is as shocked as Maggie when a face from the past – a face she thought she’d never see again – appears in the village, and long-hidden secrets begin to surface.
With danger at her door, and Sam by her side, can Maggie uncover the truth before it’s too late?

My thoughts: this was very enjoyable, with DI Gillian Marsh on the periphery as Maggie and Sam solve some more mysteries and get embroiled in a complicated love story and criminal conspiracy as Maggie’s long lost sister Andrea reappears in Bishops Well.
As they dig into the murdered body in the woods case, Andrea brings chaos as she admits to having been hiding in witness protection all these years and a long lost lover of their late mother’s resurfaces, throwing a lot of the certainties the family thought they knew into chaos. Maggie’s still seeing ghosts and there’s lots to sort out before they can assure themselves they’re safe in Bishops again.
These books are so much fun, crime and chaos and lots of pets everywhere. Highly enjoyed this one and can’t wait for the next one.
