Horses, snakes, skulls, curses, Australia, repatriation, and, of course, murder, or is it? Ruth is called on to attend the opening of the coffin of an infamous bishop, only to discover the body of the museum curator, dead, beside the coffin. Natural causes is the verdict, but then there‘s another mysterious death, and then DCI Nelson falls ill and goes into a coma. Is it a curse or murder? Read it to find out. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

FlowerFairy Can‘t get enough of Ruth, Nelson, Cathbad and the entire group. 2mo

I‘m cleaning up my reviews! Another fine installment in the Ruth Galloway series. This was a bit unique in that Harry & Ruth weren‘t actually the ones investigating the mystery, but rather Harry‘s team. I especially like Judy, and will be interested to see how she evolves. And of course Cathbad is a terrific character. The next installment is a summer read, but it‘s on my list!

Sunset the day after the Solstice . . .

TheSpineView Love the series! 6mo
MittenGirlPeach @TheSpineView I‘m so glad I started reading it! I love the setting too. 6mo

This is book four in the Ruth Galloway series and my least favorite so far. I felt the plot was just not quite up to the previous books. However, I still enjoyed it and I plan to continue reading this series. 4⭐

I finished the 4th in the Ruth Galloway series this week and it is such an enjoyable creation. In this book Ruth, forensic archaeologist attends the opening of the coffin of a 16th c Saint at her local museum. On finding a body it sets of a chain of mysteries incl drugs, a horse stable , repatriating indigenous bones, and of course Ruth's personal life including Harry Nelson the grumpy police officer. On to bk 5 soon.Happy Friday reading everyone

TrishB I definitely need to start this series! 1y
andrew61 @TrishB I think you would enjoy Trish. 1y
TrishB I‘ve started one of her other series and really like it. I‘ll get there 👍🏻 1y

This was my least favourite Ruth Galloway novel so far. I felt like there were too many different things going on in this one. I also felt that even though I think she meant this one to be respectful toward Aboriginal Australians I still thought it came across as "othering" and exotifying. She also mixes gender and sexuality up repeatedly. I still care about these characters and want to read more but this one was not as strong as the others.

Book 4 of the Ruth Galloway series. I read this in a day. This was a weird one, filled with aboriginal dreamtime, drug smuggling, and dead saints. Fascinating how the author puts this all together. 4⭐

LiteraryinLawrence I‘ve read the first 3 but haven‘t picked up the 4th yet. I‘m liking her series more than Louise Penny‘s Gamache books, I think. 3y
Crazeedi @LiteraryinLititz I have number 4 on a hold, waiting for it. Can't say i like it more than Gamache, it's different. But enjoying just as much 3y

Book 4 in the Ruth Galloway series is perhaps my favorite one yet. There is something very comforting about this series especially on a gray, rainy day. Elly Griffiths is really hitting her stride with the characters‘ progression. Looking forward to the next one. 4 ⭐️.

I enjoy this series so much, and this fourth installment was no exception. There are several threads to this mystery, and it took me quite a while to see how they could possibly be all tied up. There is also some thought provoking discussion of aboriginal artifacts and respect for human remains. Definitely worthwhile. @ValerieAndBooks , I‘m ready to start our #buddyread if you are!

💫 Try and make your pictures interesting and different. I'm still working on this.

First book done! This is the fourth in Elly Griffiths Ruth Galloway series and although this one had a lot going on and a couple of times I wanted to shake the main character and tell her to grow up, I'm giving it a pick because I definitely want to read the next in the series.

This is my first book finished in 2017, though I started it in December. I love this series and am really having to make myself not jump straight into the next one. I've read the first four in pretty quick succession! The mysteries are always a little different from a typical story, and there's a historical angle because Ruth is a forensic archeologist. I'm also kept interested by the ongoing personal storyline that threads through the series.
