In any event, her motherly demands don’t seem to prevent Ruth from getting involved with more forensic investigations and police investigations. Especially when six skeletons are discovered on a beach and her examination indicates that they are probably from Germany, perhaps dating back to an invasion during the early days of World War II on a lonely Norfolk beach. Indications are that each was shot in the back of the head. The question arises: Did the various persons in the Home Guard play any role in their deaths?
As in the previous two novels featuring Ruth and D.I. Nelson, they combine to discover the facts surrounding the mystery of past and present. The prose is lean and the plot moves apace with agility. The characters remain immensely human and intriguing, and the novel lives up to the standards of the predecessor novels.

British ideas of justice so often wrong
I have liked others books of this series, but could not finish when it became apparent that we were going to be treated to another example of what I consider to be impractical and intrinsically unjust high-flown bs. Are you seriously telling me that if one country invades another, it should not reasonably expect for all its soldiers will be killed in any way possible? Thank goodness I live in a country that approaches things more sensibly. But then the oh-so-noble British think homeowner's have no right to use deadly force to repel home invaders, and put people on trial for self-defense deaths. Ridiculous!
