    An archaeological team working on a burial mound near Stonehenge finds two bodies. Unfortunately, only one of them is several thousand years old and a deceased stone age chieftain. The other is much more recent, only dead a decade or so, and after some effort is identified as Richard Grantley, brother of Clive Grantley, Mayor of Salisbury. Clive Grantley is a reserved, dignified, upright man, respected by all. His brother was a charming risk-taker, gambler, possibly swindler, possibly undercover An archaeological team working on a burial mound near Stonehenge finds two bodies. Unfortunately, only one of them is several thousand years old and a deceased stone age chieftain. The other is much more recent, only dead a decade or so, and after some effort is identified as Richard Grantley, brother of Clive Grantley, Mayor of Salisbury. Clive Grantley is a reserved, dignified, upright man, respected by all. His brother was a charming risk-taker, gambler, possibly swindler, possibly undercover operative. A user, especially of women. Richard's womanizing helped to wreck Clive's marriage. It seems impossible to see Clive Grantley as a killer, yet he clearly had a motive--the only apparent motive, as Tremayne and Yarwood struggle to learn anything else about the elusive Richard. And Clive is clearly keeping secrets. As they dig into the past of Clive and Richard Grantley, Tremayne and Yarwood are also coming up against the reality of their own lives. Tremayne is a very good homicide detective, and Superintendent Moulton has come to respect his old-fashioned skills, but his age and health really are catching up to him. And Jean is back in his life to stay, and she'd like to travel with him. Yarwood still mourns the loss of Harry, but she's starting to realize that not only does she not want to be alone; she might also be able to move beyond Harry and find a new kind of love and partnership with someone else. Someone who, unlike Harry, would be comfortable with her police career. There's a good, solid mystery here, but as always with Strang, it's also a solid story of the growth and development of the characters we've come to know and care about. Recommended. I received a free electronic galley of this book from the author, and am reviewing it voluntarily.

    "A cracking series" The devil is in the detail as always. Tremayne and Yarwood are a formidable team and I love the banter that fills the gaps between them interviewing suspects. Their cases always include plenty of characters and a liberal number of red herrings. Although when the murderer was revealed it didn't come as a great surprise I must admit I sat up with a start at one revelation. I didn't see that one coming. I'm intrigued.

    Ancient history as a setting for contemporary crime – A Fine Thriller!

Australian author Phillip Strang has gained his platform as an adventure writer through his career installing telecommunications networks in many remote and exotic parts of the globe, including time spent in Afghanistan and Pakistan - an experience that allowed him to gain direct insights in to the ongoing conflicts there. He has also spent considerable time in Africa including Liberia, Nigeria, and Guinea. It is this direct contact with troubled countries that gives his books intense credibility: he has first hand contact with the events he shares in his books such as DI TREMAYNE Thriller Series, of which this is Book 7 – the first books are DEATH UNHOLY, DEATH AND THE ASSASSIN’S BLADE, DEATH AND THE LUCKY MAN, DEATH AT COOMBE FARM, DEATH BY A DEAD MAN’S HAND, DEATH IN THE VILLAGE and now BURIAL MOUND. But it takes more than on the spot witness to bring the story Phillip has written to life in the format of a book - and that is where he towers above others creating novels with similar storylines. To bring a story of this magnitude into focus it is imperative that the foundation of the place and the people are presented accurately in order to bring the terror that is to come to meaningful life. Phillip sets his stage well from the very first page: ‘ Archaeology was never of much interest to Detective Inspector Keith Tremayne, a man whose idea of a fun weekend was not ferreting around on his hands and knees with a small trowel and a soft brush. Not that Clare Yarwood, his sergeant, saw it that way. She reveled in the history of Salisbury and the area – its acknowledged pinnacle for hordes of tourists, Stonehenge. However, the thought of the monument, built high on Salisbury Plain by Neolithic ancestors five thousand years previously, brought out negative emotions in her, as it was the site of a murder earlier in her career.’ Scene set with only a hint of what is to come.’ The story is distilled well in Phillip’s synopsis: ‘A Bronze-Age burial mound close to Stonehenge, an archaeological excavation. The expectation: an ancient body, historical artifacts. They did not expect to find a recent burial there as well. It’s another case for Detective Inspector Tremayne and Sergeant Yarwood. The more recent of the two bodies, the brother of the mayor of Salisbury. The person responsible keeps leading back to the brother, the upright and serious-minded Clive Grantley. Tremayne’s sure that it’s him, but Clare Yarwood’s not so sure. But is her belief based on evidence or personal hope?’ Elegant writing and a keen sense of suspense – this is another Phillip Strang winner!

I have read all of Phillips books and this one really blew me away…. The ending was the most unexpected one that I have read recently… He has always had a lot going on in his books but by far this one was very intricate. What will you like? Exciting, stimulating, sensational, and definitely electrifying! So put the kids to bed and get ready for a great read. The details and descriptions of the area will put you right at the site with all the troubles during the removal of the deceased. There is lots of history included and the research shows on each page. I loved the unexpected ending and wow was it a dilly! Can’t wait for the next book to come out. I received this from the author for an honest review with no other compensation.

    When a burial mound is excavated near Stonehenge, two bodies are found. One body is from before the Christian era, the other is wearing a watch. When the body is discovered to be from a prominent local family and was never missed, it sets off alarm bells. Tremayne and his team follow a trail that leads to Singapore to solve the murder. I was gifted this from the author.

    Another outing for Tremayne and Yarwood, this time involving an archeological dig near Stonehenge. 2 bodies are found but one is quite recent, the detectives need to establish identity and whether it was murder. The investigation takes them far and wide and uncovers a few secrets. Well worth the read, this has a wee surprise at the end too.

    This is a police procedural in the true sense, as there is no suspense but good investigation. The book is very well written, with excellent characters and a clear timeline, that all makes it very enjoyable.

    Engaging This is a well written story, with many twists and turns. I would have liked a conclusion to the murder of the Scottish professor, but the story worked well the characters are believable

    It's ok Started out intriguingly but I just never got caught up in it as I have with his other books. And to me the ending was abrupt, unsatisfying, felt thrown together to get it over with. Not one of my faves It's ok Started out intriguingly but I just never got caught up in it as I have with his other books.

    Beware of a British Cop I thought it started out rather slow but all of a sudden I couldn’t put the book down. A lot of intrigue.

    Another fine "dogged investigation produces results" from Tremayne and Yarwood and the rest of their team -- with quite the unexpected ending! It will be very interesting to see where this leads.
