Erin Hart does a grand job of developing this mystery with characters from The Haunted Ground. In this stand alone novel, you learn more about bog bodies and black market antiquities. You also learn a bit about historical beliefs and the Irish countryside. The narrator has a terrific Irish accent and you can easily identify the various characters as the story unwinds. My only mnor complaint is that the "conflict" between the two main characters is frequently mentioned and I'd just as soon relegate it to lesser importance or get on with the happy ever after. (I am a romantic at heart). I was sorry to have it end especially since the next novel is not due out for awhile.

There are many knots to be untangled in this mystery set in the peat bogs of Ireland. The plot is engaging and the characters are interesting and deeply layered.
I bought this book, hoping that it might follow along similar lines as "Haunted Ground" - moving back and forth between a mystery in the ancient past and one in the modern day. And even though that is not the case, I thoroughly enjoyed the way the author tied the story together with a focus on ancient Celtic folklore & culture.
The narrator deserves special mention, as she successfully juggles a multitude of characters, keeping them all unique. Her command of the various regional accents is exceptional - as is her American accent for Nora.
