This is a weekly event that highlights a book that we can't wait to be published. It's hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
My selection for this week is the 7th book in Elly Griffiths' mystery series that stars forensic archaeologist, Dr. Ruth Galloway, and DCI Harry Nelson. It's set in the Norfolk area of England. And I love it! Ruth Galloway is a wonderful protagonist. She's a real, ordinary woman. Not necessarily in her choice of profession, which is fascinating, but she's not a size 0. She's not 22 and beautiful. She is a single mother of sweet Kate, and Ruth has some very memorable friends - like Cathbad, a Druid. She and Nelson have a complicated relationship, to say the least. The first book in the series is The Crossing Places. Meantime, here is the new book:

Events are further complicated by a TV company that wants to make a film about Norfolk’s deserted air force bases, the so-called Ghost Fields, which have been partially converted into a pig farm run by one of the younger Blackstocks. As production begins, Ruth notices a mysterious man lurking on the outskirts of Fred Blackstock’s memorial service. Then human bones are found on the family’s pig farm. Can the team outrace a looming flood to find a killer?
Laced with dry humor and anchored by perennial fan favorite Ruth, The Ghost Fields will delight fans new and old.
