WINNER OF THE 2016 CWA DAGGER IN THE LIBRARY. Halloween night, and the dead are closer than ever for Dr Ruth Galloway. She is used to long-dead bodies, but a fresh corpse in the middle of a museum is a new challenge. The fourth beguiling Dr Ruth Galloway mystery.

'A wonderfully rich mix of ancient and contemporary' Guardian

It is Halloween in King's Lynn, and forensic archaeologist Dr Ruth Galloway is attending a strange event at the local history museum - the opening of a coffin containing the bones of a medieval bishop. But then Ruth finds the body of the museum's curator lying beside the coffin.

Soon the museum's wealthy owner lies dead in his stables too. These two deaths could be from natural causes but DCI Harry Nelson isn't convinced, and it is only a matter of time before Ruth and Nelson cross paths once more.

When threatening letters come to light, events take an even more sinister turn. But as Ruth's friends become involved, where will her loyalties lie? As her convictions are tested, she and Nelson must discover how Aboriginal skulls, drug smuggling and the Aboriginal ritual of The Dreaming may hold the answer to these deaths - and be the key to their own survival.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Griffiths applies a light touch, her Norfolk setting is admirably gloomy and Galloway is appealingly unglamorous * The Times *
A wonderfully rich mixture of ancient and contemporary . . . A welcome addition to a great series * Guardian *
A sinister, life-threatening mystery that grips to its end. * Woman & Home *
[Griffiths] effectively conveys the hurt and complex feelings that can result from unthinking indiscretions and somehow these become integral to the narrative. * CrimePieces *
A Room Full of Bones is another multi-layered investigation which rewards the reader with each level of the dig into the story * WeLoveThisBook *

“Bones”

I have followed Elly Griffiths work and enjoyed every one up until now. - Snakes, the dreaming, curses - all to far fetched and not up to Elly's usual standard. - Lets hope her next book makes up for this one. As... More
