When a construction site on an old “ghost field” is being prepped in Norfolk, England, a downed WWII airplane is dug up. This buried airplane has a body in it. Elly Griffiths’ mystery The Ghost Fields tells the story of the “ghost fields” which are long abandoned WWII airfields of England. When forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway is called in, it is revealed that the body had been placed in the plane recently. The body is identified as Fred Blackstock who supposedly was lost in a plane crash over the ocean. Why is his family so upset by the place that his body was discovered? Why are other members of the Blackstock family murdered or attacked? The story has complicated roots in past family history and richly uses the landscape of flood prone Norfolk, England.
