The Stone Circle

'My favourite series' Val McDermid DCI Nelson has been receiving threatening letters telling him to 'go to the stone circle and rescue the innocent who is buried there'. He is shaken, not only because children are very much on his mind, with Michelle's baby due to be born, but because although the letters are anonymous, they are somehow familiar. They read like the letter 'My favourite series' Val McDermid DCI Nelson has been receiving threatening letters telling him to 'go to the stone ci...

    I almost couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this was available for review so soon after The Dark Angel dropped. And it's better than I could have expected! While book #10 was a departure from the usual setting of the series, The Stone Circle brings us back to the beginning. Nelson get...

    Here's the thing: when an author has a successful series their editors seem to give them a lot more leeway, because they know the books will sell even if they're not their best efforts. Diana Gabaldon is a textbook example--between the longtime fans and the new ones via the TV series, ...

    The 11th Ruth Galloway book may be the most perfect book in the series. Author Elly Griffiths has stolen my heart all over again with this tale. Set in Ruth?s home turf, or home marsh, this story takes us back full circle to where it all began in Crossing Places. With the Saltmarsh a...

    First I want to say that this is one of the best books in the series. I can be quite annoyed with both Ruth and Nelson. However, in this book both very behaving quite good. Although there are moments of when I thought; " Come on Nelson, you can't have your cake and eat it ". Now, that ...

    It's a chilly winter in Norfolk and a team of archeologists are investigating a prehistoric henge when they come across some decidedly not prehistoric bones. DCI Nelson and his team suspect that this may be the remains of Margaret Lacey, a twelve year old who disappeared during a stree...

    Follow Dr. Ruth Galloway as she helps solve a mystery in Norfolk. Although this is the eleventh book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. Ruth is a forensic archaeologist and her skills are vital in getting to the truth. I have enjoyed reading the Dr. Ruth Galloway series ...

    I am always happy when a new Ruth Galloway novel comes out and it?s a pleasure to go back to North Norfolk and to a cast of characters that have now become familiar and THE STONE CIRCLE is a fantastic new addition to a brilliant series. After the body of a young girl who had disap...

    Well we are up to a fabulous number eleven in the Ruth Galloway series and to my mind the split between investigation and catching up with some, by now, much-loved characters makes for the perfect read. First to the mystery at the heart of The Stone Circle and I?m glad to say the ...

    A perfect story; all the ingredients here to ensure another Ruth Galloway book is well received. First the reveal. What skin tone is Michelle?s baby? Secondly, Frank dropping in and doing Nelson?s head in. ?I?ll deport him?. Love that Flint has not taken to Kate?s Dad. F...

    I admit that I was disappointed to put this book down, but I think at this juncture Ruth and I must part. The last book was already very borderline, I am just soooo tired of the Ruth and Nelson thing and the relationships that have descended into melodrama and remind me of a telenovela...

    I am so mad at myself. I read this too fast and now I have no way to peek in on Ruth's life. How will I wake up and not know what is going on with DC Nelson, Cathbad and little Kate? I admit it. I am an addict and this is my very favorite series. I wish I could chain Elly Griffiths to...

    Wonderful to meet all the gang again - and actually more than you would think. More death and mystery, more rainy Norfolk, bones, stones and magic. I thoroughly enjoyed this one I think, for me anyway, it was one of the best. I do feel sorry for poor Ruth though and the trouble ...

    Elly Griffiths can do no wrong in my eyes. I love everything she writes and The Stone Circle is no exception. As usual, the murder mystery plays second fiddle to the characters and I wouldn't have it any other way. It's an absolute pleasure to spend time with these people (and their pe...

    I received a free advance review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I have said in several reviews that one needs to read these books in order and this is particularly true of The Stone Circle, which draws on plot lines and chara...

    The setting is King's Lynn in Norfolk, England - December 2016. DCI Nelson has received another cryptic letter speaking of buried bodies and stone circles. It's strikingly similar to the writings of a deceased character from an earlier book of this series. Move forward to Valentine's D...

    I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do ?. DCI Nelson has been receiving threaten...

    Digging deep as always. Echoes of the Bronze Age meet distinct notes of the ever present in The Stone Circle. Dr. Ruth Galloway has been called out to the Saltmarsh near King's Lynn in Norfolk. An archaeological team has uncovered the remains of an ancient young girl within their...

    I have a confession. This is the first Ruth Galloway which I?ve read. As in read in book form. All the others I listened to in audiobook form in the car whilst commuting. I received this latest installment, however, from Netgalley (oh happy days!) and I was actually a little apprehen...

    Great to meet up with old friends, though for me they have lost spark and energy. I loved the plot well written and compelling. I liked the development of some of the existing characters that bring a different dimension to the back story. Michelles baby is born and all is well. I will ...

    EXCERPT: 12 February 2016 DCI Nelson, Well, here we are again. Truly our end is our beginning. That corpse you buried in your garden, has it begun to sprout? Will it bloom this year? You must have wondered whether I, too, was buried deep in the earth. Oh ye of little faith. You mu...

    Elly Griffiths returns us to the North Norfolk coast with her character driven series featuring academic archaeologist and single mother Dr Ruth Galloway, once again serving as a consultant for the police team run by DI Harry Nelson. This is one of my favourite comfort series, one in w...

    One of the best books in the Ruth Galloway series, which is my favourite series of all time anyway. I have so, so much love for this book. Tense and compelling thriller, brilliant moments in the Ruth and Nelson relationship. Drama, mystery, happiness, heartbreak. It?s a truly wonderf...

    I had heard good things about the Ruth Galloway series; this is the first I have read and I?m afraid I didn?t get on well with it. Ruth is a forensic archaeologist in North Norfolk, which provides interesting possibilities as a body is discovered in an archaeological dig site, but ...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Quercus Books for an advance copy of the Stone Circle, the eleventh novel to feature archaeologist Dr Ruth Galloway and Norfolk DCI Harry Nelson. Nelson is baffled to receive a letter telling him to look for a dead girl in a stone circle because ...

    I *love* Ruth Galloway but have to admit this book feels like a re-run of the first couple: *yet another* girl's body is found out on the seahenge (how many is than now?) and yet again Ruth advises the police team. A cold case is re-opened of a girl who went missing in 1981, we have mo...

    Ahhh I just love these books, I say it every time that they are my comfort reads. Although, sometimes do I wonder if not much changes. I find that these books tend to start slow, then as the information is gathered it gains momentum. But really for me it?s the characters, like m...
