Haunted Ground by Erin Hart (2003)

Haunted Ground is the first title in the Nora Gavin/Cormac Maguire mystery series by Erin Hart. The stories are set in modern Ireland, but often weave in Irish history. Nora is an American pathologist who travels to Ireland to study “bog bodies”—dead bodies from hundreds of years ago that are preserved in the peat.

Nora and archaeologist Cormac Maguire are thrown together as they investigate the decapitated head of a woman whose body is found in a peat bog. Soon they find themselves involved in solving a recent crime involving the disappearance of a wealthy landowner’s wife and son. Could these bodies also be buried in the bog?
