Welcome to the moody and beautiful landscape of North Norfolk, where Dr Ruth Galloway, our favorite forensic archaeologist, returns to confront another killer in the thrilling crime series, The Night Hawks. Written by the talented Elly Griffiths and published by Quercus, this acclaimed audiobook takes listeners on a gripping journey filled with mystery, intrigue, and chilling discoveries.

Unveiling the Plot

The story revolves around The Night Hawks, a group of metal detectorists, who stumble upon a shocking find while searching for buried treasure: a body on the beach. Initially, Detective Nelson suspects the deceased to be an asylum seeker, but it soon becomes apparent that the victim is a local boy named Jem Taylor, recently released from prison. However, Ruth's attention is caught by something else - a hoard of Bronze Age weapons, the real treasure of the discovery.

As the investigation progresses, Nelson begins to suspect foul play. The death of a second individual hints at murder rather than accidental drowning. The detective finds himself drawn to an isolated farm known as Black Dog Farm, where a haunting local legend of the Black Shuck, a spectral hound that foretells death, adds an eerie layer to the case. The suicide note of the farm's owner, which mentions burial in the garden, further deepens the mystery.

Thrills and Dangers

The heart of the story lies in Ruth's excavation at Black Dog Farm, where she uncovers the remains of a giant dog. The farm becomes the focal point of the investigation, leading the characters down a perilous path. However, Ruth, known for her bravery, does not scare easily. This time, though, she finds herself face to face with something truly terrifying at Black Dog Farm.
