Publisher's Summary

Rose McQuinn makes a long anticipated journey to her childhood home on Orkney, but does not find the peace and relaxation she anticipates. An archaeological team stumbles across a body, causing great excitement: could it be the preserved corpse of a 13th-century princess? When the body is identified as the corpse of a local woman, brutally murdered and then thrown into the bog, the calm pleasure of Rose's holiday is shattered. Realising that she probably knows the identity of the killer, Rose is all too aware that in exposing the killer she will destroy the happiness of those closest to her.

Superbly written

I love the way the author wove the beautiful details of Orkney into her take. Not typically one for mysteries, it was enjoyable and kept me guessing until the end.
