LAKE OF SORROWS (Amateur Sleuth/Pathologist-Ireland-Cont) – VG
Erin Hart – 2nd book
Hodder & Stoughton, 2004 – U.K. Hardcover
Forensic pathologist, Nora Gavin, goes to an archeological site to investigate the finding in a peat bog of an Iron Age Body who seems to have been a human sacrifice having been slain three ways. Then a second, recent body is uncovered having been killed the same way. More, similar, deaths occur and Nora is nearly one of them.
I found myself thinking of this as a very "Irish" book, in that pace and mood seemed to reflect the Irish bogs. There are numerous characters lives are as intertwined as a Celtic knot. I found myself a bit annoyed at Nora at times, but not so much that it detracted from the story. While perhaps not as good as her first book, it still a very good read.
