Travel Guide

RAF Wendling and Shipdhem

Ruth, a forensic archaeologist, is a great yet unique guide to the Norfolk fields as she sees the damp, the soil conditions, the desolate landscape is a crime scene. The Ghost Fields – even from the cover they’re remote and eerie, the sky dark in some places and glowing in others. They are so called since this part of Norfolk is well known for the many abandoned WWII airfields and so the spirits of the war dead and the whispers of history are mixed up with the cold whistling winds of the flat landscape.

Blickling Hall – the RAF museum

The area of the ghost fields is one where history and geography mix to form as important a character as the police investigators. This land is witness to such history and it’s a special police investigation which looks into bodies from the past with secrets buried with them across the passage of time. The unearthing of the fighter plane is an exciting find but the mystery takes a darker and disturbing tone with the body found which is remarkably well preserved despite a bullet in his head.

The investigation soon focuses  on a local Norfolk family who own lots of land in the area. They are struggling to keep their large house but are reluctant to let go of the faded glamour of their lifestyles and standing in society. There is something very odd about them..
