The Hidden Bones by Nicola Ford

Following the recent death of her husband, Clare Hills is listless and unsure of her place in the world.  When her former university friend Dr David Barbrook asks her to help him sift through the effects of deceased archaeologist Gerald Hart, she sees this as a useful distraction from her grief.

During her search, Clare stumbles across the unpublished journals detailing Gerald’s most glittering dig.  Hidden from view for decades and supposedly destroyed in an arson attack, she cannot believe her luck.  Finding the Hungerbourne Barrows archive is every archaeologist’s dream.  Determined to document Gerald’s career-defining find for the public, Clare and David delve into his meticulously kept records of the excavation.

But the dream suddenly becomes a nightmare as the pair unearth a disturbing discovery, putting them at the centre of a murder inquiry and in the path of a dangerous killer determined to bury the truth forever.

Peer & Press Reviews

The Hidden Bones is a cracking debut.  Ford’s experience as an archaeologist shines through on every page.  First class.

Mari Hannah, author of the Kate Daniels series

[A] zippy, clever, and entertaining read.  The plot moves along at an enjoyable lick, with some great twists as events take a darker turn and the stakes get higher.  Characters are sketched clearly but with neat economy, and their dialogue is pleasingly idiomatic.  All told, this is a satisfying read, just in time for the summer holidays.
