33 posts | 46 read | 30 to read
Ruth Galloway is shocked when she learns that her old university friend Dan Golding has died tragically in a house fire. But the death takes on a sinister cast when Ruth receives a letter from Dan written just before he died. The letter tells of a great archaeological discovery, but Dan also says that he is scared for his life. Was Dans death linked to his find? The only clue is his mention of the Raven King, an ancient name for King Arthur.Then Ruth is invited to examine the bones Dan found. Ruth travels to Lancashirethe hometown of DCI Nelsonwith both her eighteen-month-old daughter, Kate, and her druid friend, Cathbad, in tow. She discovers a campus living in fear of a sinister right-wing group called the White Hand. She also finds that the bones revealed a shocking fact about King Arthurand theyve mysteriously vanished. When Nelson, visiting his mother in Blackpool, learns about the case, he is drawn into the investigation, especially when Ruth and his beloved Kate seem to be in danger. Who is willing to kill to keep the bones a secret?

Ruth Galloway is once again up to her neck in danger. With ties to her college days, a dead man‘s invitation to a possibly history making dig, a floundering college, all of which takes place near a vacationing Harry Nelson, Ruth once again helps to solve an intricately involved mystery, and rediscover possibly career changing remains. And there‘s ancient mythology and druids. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is book 5 in the series and just as good as the first. What I love about the series is the continuing back story of the characters. The main plot is always good too. 4.5⭐ #SpookOween #Necronomathon @Patchshank #Wickedathon @StayCurious #LittenListen @aperfectmjk #BookSpinBingo @TheAromaofBooks #SeriesRead2021 #ReadWithUs @GHABI4ROSES @DieAReader

Brilliant #crimefiction event taking place this weekend. They've raised over £12K for food banks sellong tickets, and if this opening session is any indicator, it's going to be well worth the price. I was laughing out loud.

Very atmospheric with a tantalising air of menace from an unknown source. One quibble which may be just the ebook formatting, but some sort of typographical clue such as an extra line space or a row of asterisks when the scene changes would be helpful.

I can‘t get enough of Elly Griffiths. These are super fast reads for me! Each story is interesting and you get to know her characters a little more in every book.

Ms.Story My favourite series!! 3y

I think I liked this series better at the beginning. That being said, I still gobbled this one up. I'm a sucker for a cosy mystery these days - such a great escape from the news cycle!

Another in the Ruth Galloway series! This one had Ruth involved in finding out whether bones were King Arthur's. She always manages to get in the middle of dangerous situations. This one wasn't quite a good as previous, but still enjoyable. My heart did stop at the end of story and I thought oh NO! You'll have to read to find out why!!

A Druid who goes by the name Cathbad is a recurring character in the Ruth Galloway series. He‘s one of the reasons I love this series— the side characters are well done! He plays a big part in the tagged book. #celtic #literaryluck

So I think I‘m just over this series... I‘m not good at reading series. This is the 5th book in the series and at this point I think I‘m just kind of done. I‘m sure there is nothing wrong with this book, I just had no interest in continuing reading. I got about 70 pages in.

I plan to continue reading Elly Griffith‘s other books though.

Daisey Completely understand! I often struggle with a series if it‘s more than 3 or 4 books long. I just have so many other books to read! 4y

1. My pup. Always laying under my desk at my feet, especially if a blanket is involved.
2. I got an evening to myself where I got to relax and read home alone.
3. Both. I do cheese, but not milk or cream. DF cream cheese and almond milk.
4. 🤔🤷🏻‍♀️ (just started only 50 pages in)
5. No

I really love this series, and this installment was particularly good. An interesting cast of characters, with plenty of suspects and plot twists. I was kept guessing until very late. I have to contain myself from binge reading all the Ruth Galloway mysteries, because I want the enjoyment to last.

MamaGina I tried to space them out, but ended up binging them 😁 ... And now I hear a new one is coming out soon called The Dark Angel! 4y
Lynnsoprano @MamaGina It‘s already out in England, I think, because my friend there who hooked me on the series mentioned reading it. 4y
MamaGina Yes, you're right, I heard about it on an interview with her on a podcast called Partners in Crime. Hope it's out here soon or I may have to go the book depository route🤓 4y
Lynnsoprano @MamaGina I need to take a trip to Cambridgeshire to swap books with my friend. I wish😂 She and her hubby live in an Honest-to-God English cottage, and staying there is one of the highlights of my life. 4y

I wondered where the title of this book came from, and, by coincidence, it‘s derived from a Shakespeare quote from Twelfth Night, which I saw (and read) last month.

Honest, I was only going to the library to return hubby‘s books. After all, I added 3 new Kindle deals to my TBR last week alone. But the next thing I knew, my feet were moving past the book return. At least I escaped with only one book😂

I know I should be sleeping... babe is sleeping, mama should be too... why don't I sleep when she sleeps all flipping night?! Why am I constantly watching her monitor? She sleeps a solid 12 hours if not more.. me a solid 2...Thanks to @Shemac77 for the bag of books I'm still reading.

Shemac77 Things are finally starting to straighten away. Looking forward to a date with you and little miss soon! 4y

1. Crunchy
2. The tagged one - though the next in the series is darned good too!
3. Reading, participating in the #LetsGetGraphicWeeklongMarathon that starts today, and a library and doughnut run tomorrow. Looking forward to 4 days off!
4. Speak every language, with the option to talk to animals only sometimes (like when they‘re sick, etc).
5. No minor but I had more than enough music credits for a major!

Book 5 in the Ruth Galloway series and I'm still enjoying them. She's off to Blackpool after the death of an old friend. Another great story and very dramatic. Off to read the next one.

The DR Ruth Galloway series are based in Norfolk which is where I live and the real places mentioned are nearby to me. I'm really hoping at some point she will actually mention my town.

Book no. 5 in the series and it was good! It took me a while to get into it, felt like it could have been a little shorter but I liked it! Definitely will continue the series! 😊

Felt like going right into the 5th book in the Ruth Galloway series. 🤗 #litsypartyofone

mjdowens I am going to try the first book. Sounds interesting 5y
eanderson @mjdowens it definitely is! It's good because it's not a psychological thriller so it isn't super dark and Ruth reminds me a little of Bridget Jones. I loved the first book! 5y
Bluebird @eanderson I like your comparison of Ruth to Bridget Jones! It hadn't occurred to me before, but I see it too. 5y

This is not a fun snowstorm, like the last couple of storms. It's mean and hella windy. The power keeps going out. Reading this right now while it's still light out. Then - who knows? 😕🌨☠️

Y'all. I know I said it in my previous review, but this is absolutely my favourite series!! Im not even reading for plot anymore, although I still find the archeological theme fascinating; I LOVE these characters and care about what happens to them! And the suspense near the end is 👌🏻Is Griffiths's other series as good as this one??!!
