Mystery


Library



I could not put it down. As you might have seen, I really like these. Maybe I have been mystery starved.



Ruth's daughter is turning 1, Nelson can no longer be in contact, oh yes book 3 was quite the thriller there. And Ruth is Ruth



More bodies, and I liked the theme in this one how bones should be returned to where they belong.



Ruth is taking a back seat in this one, a lot more than just a dead body and a 600 year old bishop is going on. And she is rather clueless, which I liked too, she can't always be everywhere, there are more mysteries going on here.



Great as always. Must start book 5 now!




On Halloween night, the Smith Museum in King's Lynn is preparing for an unusual event -- the opening of a coffin containing the bones of a medieval bishop. But when forensic archaelogist Ruth Galloway arrives to supervise, she finds the curator, Neil Topham, dead beside the coffin. Topham's death seems to be related to other uncanny incidents, including the arcane and suspect methods of a group called the Elginists, which aims to repatriate the museum's extensive collection of Aborigine skulls; the untimely demise of the museum's owner, Lord Smith; and the sudden illness of DCI Harry Nelson, who Ruth's friend Cathbad believes is lost in The Dreaming -- a hallucinogenic state central to some Indigenous Australian beliefs. Tensions build as Nelson's life hangs in the balance. Something must be done to set matters right and lift Nelson out of the clutches of death, but will Ruth be able to muster herself out of a state of guilt and foreboding in order to do what she does best?
