The outcast dead by Elly Griffiths

Hardcover, 374 pages

Published March 11th 2014 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 

Series: Ruth Galloway #6



Book 6! Yes I have gone through these fast. Quite addicted, I did not know I had it in me.

In this one Ruth is looking at the bones of a woman convicted for killing children. While Nelson is investigating actual child killings and kidnappings.

I have given up the though of these two together, wont happen, should not happen.

Another thrilling book where she does her archaeology thing, and the police solves cases. I just really like these and want more.

On to book 7!!

Forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway uncovers the bones of a Victorian murderess while a baby snatcher threatens modern-day Norfolk in this exciting new entry in a beloved series.

Every year a ceremony is held in Norwich for the bodies in the paupers' graves: the Service for the Outcast Dead. Ruth has a particular interest in this year's proceedings. Her recent dig at Norwich Castle turned up the body of the notorious Mother Hook, who was hanged in 1867 for the murder of five children. Now Ruth is the reluctant star of the TV series Women Who Kill, working alongside the program's alluring history expert, Professor Frank Barker.

DCI Harry Nelson is immersed in the case of three children found dead in their home. He is sure that the mother is responsible. Then another child is abducted and a kidnapper dubbed the Childminder claims responsibility. Are there two murderers afoot, or is the Childminder behind all the deaths? The team must race to find out-and the stakes couldn't be any higher when another child goes missing.
