    (84)

    American forensic pathologist Nora Gavin has been called to an archaeological site in the bleak midlands west of Dublin to assist at an excavation where a well-preserved Iron Age body has been found buried in a peat bog. How many hundreds or thousands of years ago was the man killed? Was his a ritual death, some kind of human sacrifice? These academic questions are intriguing, but of much more urgent interest is the second body found nearby, of a man wearing a wristwatch, hardly an Iron Age accessory.

    Kathy says: "Wonderful!!"
    "More History Please"
    Overall

    I loved this story, a good plot and characters, but I did miss more history on the ancient bog body found. I would have liked a bit more information on the findings and musings of these mysterious and interesting bodies found preserved in the bogs. The narrator is wonderful, her voice is so southing and her accents are great.

    When farmers cutting turf in an Irish peat bog make a grisly discovery, the perfectly intact body of a young woman with long red hair, archaeologist Cormac O'Callaghan and pathologist Nora Gavin are thrown together by their shared scientific interest in human remains. Because of the preservative effect of the bog, it is difficult to tell whether the body has lain there for two decades, two centuries, or two millennia.

    Sara says: "Archeology, Folklore and Mystery in Ireland"
    "Lyrical and hauntingly beautiful"
    Overall

    I was so taken with this book (so beautifully narrated by Jennifer McMahon) I had to follow the story of Nora Gavin. I found this story to be touching and insightful, and a darn good mystery. The author and narrator work total magic. Jennifer does her accents to perfection, thus making the whold story flow.
