Ruth Galloway lives on the edge of the desolate Saltmarsh in Norfolk. A forensics anthropology professor at the University of North Norfolk, she spends her days lecturing postgraduate students in the finer points of her chosen field. Detective Harry Nelson needs an expert to tell him the age of a skeleton found in the Saltmarsh. As Ruth finds an Iron Age burial, Detective Nelson looks for a child’s body in a ten year old missing persons case.

Then another child goes missing, and the crime mirrors the ten year old cold case right down to the mysterious letters filled with anthropological references. Ruth and Nelson work together to decipher the letters to find the missing child before it is too late. But are the letters really clues to finding the missing children? Ruth must examine her past and her present to find the answers before she becomes the killer’s next victim.
