A dying fall by Elly Griffiths

Hardcover, 391 pages

Published March 5th 2013 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (first published December 20th 2012)

Series: Ruth Galloway #5



I am really reading through these :D I already started book 6!

In this one Ruth, her daughter Katie and Cathbad goes to Blackpool to see if the bones found are those of King Arthur.

Nelson is also there on vacay and looking into a murder of the man who found the bones. The whole Nelson Ruth thing is still so tense. Dang!

I really like Cathbad btw, the weird, really weird druid from book 1 is not a really good friend to Ruth.

As for the murder, I did feel she was more involved before, but now she also has her own things going on. Like omg is that really the bones of King Arthur. Wont spoil that.

I never knew I was such a mystery person

Ruth’s old friend Dan Golding dies in a house fire. But before he died Dan wrote to Ruth telling her that he had made a ground-breaking archaeological discovery. Could this find be linked to his death and who are the sinister neo-Nazi group who were threatening Dan? Ruth makes the trip to Blackpool to investigate, wary of encroaching on DCI Harry Nelson’s home ground. Soon Ruth is embroiled in a mystery that involves the Pendle Witches, King Arthur and – scariest of all – Nelson’s mother.

There are forces at work in the town that that threaten all that Ruth holds dear. But, in the final showdown on Blackpool Pleasure Beach, it is Cathbad who faces the greatest danger of all.


  1. I've read and liked this author though this one is new to me. Thanks for the review.

  2. I always have a good time with mystery books

  3. It's always nice when you find a good series to stick with. And mystery/thrillers are awesome for that! With this genre, I find a good author I like and pretty much devour all their books.
