Publisher's Summary

Norfolk is experiencing a July heat wave when a construction crew unearths a macabre discovery - a buried World War II plane with the pilot still inside. Forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway quickly realizes that the skeleton couldn't possibly be the pilot, and DNA tests identify the man as Fred Blackstock, a local aristocrat who had been reported dead at sea.
When the remaining members of the Blackstock family learn about the discovery, they seem strangely frightened by the news. 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 close to the Blackstocks' family home. Then human bones are found on the family's pig farm.
Can the team outrace a looming flood to find a killer?

All in all, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play?

This was not my favorite in the series, to say the least. Perhaps I would like it more if I had read it, as I did any of the previous books. I do give credit to the narrator for her gift with accents (although why can't they ever "do" American) and her female voices are good but the male characters are all are very poorly interpreted, which is quite off putting. Nelson sounds like a dolt and Cathbad's dreamy, mystical sound is trite.
I look forward to each new Elly Griffiths mystery but in this one, I identified the killer very early on...not satisfying at all. Also, I am kind of bored with the whole Ruth/Nelson thing....fish or cut bait, already!
(Oh, nuts, I'm sounding like quite a curmudgeon!) Read the series in order...I loved the early books!
