Archaeology, bog bodies, Irish lore and a fascinating mystery: all in one tightly written novel. This was a fun read and full of interesting tidbits. Modern and at the same time classic.

A woman's head is found in an Irish bog. Who is she and why was she beheaded? Cormac Macguire and Nora Gavin must find out. But obviously, someone doesn't want them there. Does this have something to do with the bog woman or with the missing wife and son of a local man?

An excellent mystery that incorporates Ireland's history as well as modern Ireland. The book's plot is solid and the writing is so clear that it makes you feel like you know the little village even if you have never been to Ireland.

One reviewer said "Erin Hart does for Galway what Sharyn McCrumb did for Appalachia." The book was excellent -- a complex but logical plot, interesting characters and interpersonal relationships, and a beautiful locale, all conveyed with nice use of language and image. I will definitely look for her second and subsequent books in what I understand will be a series.
