    Ruth Galloway is one of my favorite crime novel characters. She is an academic specializing in ancient bones. A colleague and old friend invites her to Italy to look at some old bones, and Ruth, desperate for a holiday, takes off for 2 weeks in Italy with her 6year-old daughter Kate an...

    I think I may have said before that this is one of my favourite series. Well, I was wrong, this is absolutely my favourite and without any shadow of a doubt. Whilst there are other series that I am enjoying reading, none of them are even coming close to knocking this one off its perch....

    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-...

    3.5 "entertaining" stars Dr Ruth Galloway is quite the talented forensic anthropologist. She is well known so that when she receives an invite from a man Dr Angelo Morelli she jumps at the chance to take a look at a group of bones recently unearthed in a village outside of Rome. Rut...

    If there were an award for the most annoying characters in a book series (that you keep reading, despite the fact) would I award it to Ruth Galloway & DCI Harry Nelson. Sorry, to everyone that loves the series, but Ruth inner monologue about how fat she is and how religion sucks, e...

    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...

    The latest Ruth Galloway novel takes her on a business/holiday away from King's Lynn and Norfolk to sunny, hot Italy. She, her friend Shona and their children, Kate and Louis, are traveling because Ruth has been invited by a long-ago colleague to assist with the identification of some ...

    In the last several months I have read an inordinate amount of novels set in Italy. Was surprised to find in this book, which is set in England, that I would once again be traveling to Italy, in particular Castello degli Angeli. A town slowly dying, all it's young people moving to Rome...

    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,...

    This was a nice change of venue for Ruth, leaving her cottage and cat, Flint, in the saltmarshes near Norfolk for what becomes a working holiday in Italy. Ruth's self-deprecating humor and the realationships with family, friends, and her daughter's father add to the forensic archeologi...

    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. ...

    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...

    This was disappointing. I think the author boxed herself in by using Italy as the setting for this book. It was easy enough to get Ruth there with a request to consult on an archeological television show. She, of course, brings her daughter. Ruth's best friend, Shona, also comes alo...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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...
