Summary

Where Old Bones Lie is set on an isolated archaeological dig in the Cotswolds. When a body is found near the site, the suspects, witnesses, and clues all conflict, and the disappearance of a group of New Age travellers just seems to add to the mystery.

Superintendent Markby and Meredith Mitchell must untangle the mess, and in doing so find themselves in a dangerous and uncompromising situation.

Critic reviews

"A master of characterization, Granger specializes in engaging eccentrics, and she has a winner here - an irresistible old codger who lives at the local dump." (Publishers Weekly)

A bit far-fetched, but enjoyable

I've listened to most of the Anne Granger books available on the Audible list and have found them all worth listening to. I rate this book a little lower than others, for, although I don't expect realism in her books, this one seems a bit more far-fetched in the number of people in a small community who are willing to murder or attempt murder. The village of Bamford must have the highest murder rate in the UK!

Another Successful Mystery...

Another successful mystery by Ann Granger..
Multiple storylines interwoven made for a satisfying listen.. neatly tidied up , with all of the loose ends dealt with..
Always a relief when nothing is left dangling and unanswered.
