For years Dr. Ruth Galloway has made her home on the edge of the remote Saltmarsh, devoting her life to her work as a university professor and forensic archaeologist. When human remains are discovered buried in the marsh, Detective Chief Inspector Harry Nelson calls on Ruth to consult in the investigation, desperate for a break in a missing-child case that's haunted him for years. Five-year-old Lucy Downey was snatched from her home without a trace, and for a decade her kidnapper has taunted Nelson with a series of cryptic letters that have the police stumped. But Ruth sees clues in the letters and in the Saltmarsh's landscape that Nelson cannot - clues that become all the more critical when a second child goes missing. The gruff Nelson and cerebral Ruth make for an unusual investigative team in this contemporary whodunit, the first in a series that came highly recommended by one of Bas Bleu's biggest fans: my mystery-loving mom!
