9780007102174: Silence & Shadows

Patrick Kane is a man haunted by his past. Bobby Redhead, a woman who stumbles into the path of his car, is a mysterious part of that past. They have come together at an archaeological dig in the village of Wytchlow. What has Patrick done that he cannot forgive? Why is Bobby so drawn to him? And how are they connected by the local folksong of a Saxon girl called the German Queen? To learn the answers, they must race to save the German Queen's long-buried secret before a developer can claim the land. Here, in a small English village where history is as alive as the nearest plowed field, three people - one dead a thousand years but still very much alive - meet on an unforgettably touching adventure through time that will lead to the very depths of the human heart.... Can the fragile bones of a royal matriarch heal the hearts of those who would dare free her?

From the Back Cover:

"Long does a fine job of juxtaposing modern scientific investigation with the mysteries of ancient history, especially the heyday of the Saxon tribes in Britain. Stressing spiritual links between the past and the present, he avoids the excesses of romantic fiction while making the ancient world vividly interesting."
-- Publishers Weekly

“You really have to read Silence and Shadows. The only thing wrong with the book was that I should have waited for a weekend — it was definitely too good to put down.”
Mystery News

“Explosive.”
Booknews

“Remarkable ... A magical story, told with great skill.”
