A Book We Love: Book of Killowen

Jill, Arvada Library

Book of Killowen is the newest installment in Erin Hart’s Nora Gavin/Cormac Maguire series of archaeological crime novels set in modern Ireland.  She is a pathologist, he is an archaeologist and together they find themselves investigating cases built around bodies found in bogs of Ireland.  Book of Killowen came out in March and offers up more than a few surprises, chiefly, the discovery of not one but two bodies in a bog, one ancient and one modern!  If you like a good blend of history, archaeology and forensics, check out this series.

Erin Hart has a wonderful, informative, official website, and writes a fun blog, which includes a lot of background on the research she does for her novels.

Another great resource is the glossary she created to help readers learn how to pronounce things properly.

Happy reading!
