    The Ruth Galloway series by Elly Griffiths is celebrating its 10th Year Anniversary this year with the publication of The Dark Angel. Do not expect it to be a light-hearted celebratory tale. This book is Elly Griffiths at her most devilish best. It?s light and dark and all shades in-...

    I look forward all year to the latest Ruth Galloway adventure. This time she heads to a quiet sea side town in Italy to help a colleague identify the bones they?ve found on a dig they?re featuring on the friend?s Time Team like program. That part of the journey turns into a bit o...

    Ruth Galloway is one of my favorite detectives, and I love this series by Elly Griffiths because it is unique, clever, and smartly written. The Dark Angel, the 10th installment, takes Ruth with her friend Shona and their children in tow to Italy to investigate a group of bones found by...

    I think if Elly Griffiths chose to write a cookery book it would be a #1 best seller. In The Dark Angel she has maintained the high standard readers of the Ruth Galloway series have come to expect and love. Packed full of familiar characters the story is homely but never sentimental,...

    The title of Elly Griffiths 10th novel, The Dark Angel, in the Ruth Galloway Mystery series seems to suggest there is a darkness hovering over Ruth's next archaeological dig. She is contacted by Angelo Morelli, a former friend and lover, to help him identify some bones from the Roman e...

    Really annoyed me, the series has been going downhill for me for a while but this one was really not a mystery more the Ruth and Nelson melodrama. I think this might be the last one I read in this series. ...

    The Dark Angel, Elly Griffiths' tenth Ruth Galloway mystery, is a little light on the mystery and a little heavier on the personal lives of the characters-- but since I find this particular cast among the very best (and most interesting) in crime fiction, I don't particularly mind. ...

    4.5 stars I love the Ruth Galloway series and eagerly look forward to the next book. I try to read slowly to make it last longer but I can never do it. I have to keep turning the pages and this is no exception. I was a little nervous because Ruth goes off to help out on an archaeolo...

    If I could give this more stars I would. This is a hugely engaging read. This series has many fans and you can certainly understand why. The crimes most definitely play second fiddle to the torturous and intense relationships between Ruth and Nelson, and between Nelson and Michelle, an...

    I want to start by saying this in one of my favorite series and the characters dear to me, because they have always come across as very real. The mystery aspect of the plot in the Ruth Galloway books is not their strong point, but I don't really care, I read them for my love of the cha...

    I will say from the outset that over the course of the Ruth Galloway books, I have had an up and down relationship with them, but feel almost a sense of guilt if I decide not to pick up the next in the series. The Dark Angel reaches the landmark of ten books, featuring the everywoman c...

    4.5* Forensic archaeologist Dr Ruth Galloway leaves Norfolk behind for the hilltop town of Castello degli Angeli in sunny Italy when she receives a phone call from an old colleague and one time lover, Angelo Morelli. Bones have been discovered at a dig in the Liri Valley. They could p...

    There are serious dangers in waking the spirits of the dead. Dr. Ruth Galloway, UK bone specialist in archaeology, seems to know this quite often and usually up front and personal. Ruth has been contacted by an old colleague, Angelo Morelli, to examine some unusual bones found in an...

    The Ruth Galloway series is like returning to an old friend. I'm always excited for a new release and I know it's going to be a great read. The Dark Angel reinforced this feeling! I love the combination of archaeology and crime that runs at the core of this series, and The Dark Ange...

    Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for providing me with an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review! Ruth, still reeling from the events of the end of the last book, is living day to day, trying to hang out. An old friend calls her up and invites her to help with some bon...

    With thanks to Netgalley and Quercus for this ARC in exchange for an open and honest review. In The Dark Angel takes Ruth away from Norfolk to spend three weeks in Italy. The story begins with Ruth's friend DS Dave Clough marrying Cassandra. Ruth is very down after finding out Nelso...

    3.5 stars When I started reading this, I couldn?t help but think about how far these characters have come. There?s a personal story arc that has evolved at a snappy pace from the beginning & it shows no sign of slowing down here. As the book opens, we find Ruth in a bit ...

    I can't believe that this is the 10th book in the series featuring Dr Ruth Galloway, as it doesn't seem that long ago since the first one came out. Once you get into this series, it's very addictive. In this one, Ruth goes to Italy on the request of an old flame, a TV archeologist who ...

    While it as nice to see Ruth and Nelson out of their comfort zone, I don't think this book has been one of the best in the series. I didn't feel it was as gritty, or as exciting as the previous books. This book just didn't have the same oomph as the first 9. Probably because it's diffe...

    EXCERPT: Giving your son to God sounds sinister somehow. Ruth once found the body of an Iron Age girl who had been tied down and left on the marshes to die, an offering to some faceless, nameless diety. She thinks of Isaac carrying the wood on which he is going to be sacrificed by his ...

    The tenth instalment in the Ruth Galloway series; it was alright. Much of what passed for archaeology happened in Italy, and those chapters were pleasant, but there really was no mystery or even any technical discussion in this novel. This was the book where We're Going to Discuss Ruth...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Quercus Books for an advance copy of The Dark Angel, the 10th novel in the forensic archaeologist Dr Ruth Galloway series. Ruth, while not perhaps unhappy, is feeling dissatisfied and unsettled so when ex-flame Dr Angelo Morelli invites her to Ita...

    For long-time fans of the delightful Ruth Galloway (newbies should start at the beginning of the series), this takes Ruth out of her usual setting and places her in Italy. With some plot manipulation, Griffiths gets Nelson there, too, and we have two rather thin crime plots unravelling...

    Having read all of the Ruth Galloway books, this was an auto read for me. I seem to say it every time with this series but it really is my comfort read. In this book Ruth is summoned by her old friend Angelo to help date some bones in an Italian dig. Ruth, along with daughter Katie, f...
