A Room Full of Bones (Ruth Galloway Mysteries) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Rich in atmosphere and history and blessed by [Griffiths] continuing development of brilliant, feisty, independent Ruth . . . A Room Full of Bones, like its predecessors, works its magic on the reader's imagination.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch

When Ruth Galloway arrives to supervise the opening of a coffin containing the bones of a medieval bishop, she finds the museums curator lying dead on the floor. Soon after, the museums wealthy owner is also found dead, in his stables.

These two deaths could be from natural causes, but once again Ruth and DCI Harry Nelson cross paths during the investigation. When threatening letters come to light, events take an even more sinister turn. But as Ruths friends become involved, where will her loyalties lie? As her convictions are tested, Ruth and Nelson must discover how Aboriginal skulls, drug smuggling, and the mystery of “The Dreaming” hold the answers to these deaths, as well as the keys to their own survival.

“Lovers of well-written and intelligent traditional mysteries will welcome [Griffiths] fourth book . . . A Room Full of Bones is a clever blend of history and mystery with more than enough forensic details to attract the more attentive reader.” —Denver Post

"Galloway is an Everywoman, smart, successful and a little bit unsure of herself. Readers will look forward to learning more about her." —USA Today

Synopsis:

In this thrilling installment of the Ruth Galloway mysteries, Ruth investigates a collection of Aboriginal skulls that seems to be cursed, causing people to die from a mysterious fever—one that threatens to claim Det. Inspector Harry Nelson.

Synopsis:

On Halloween night, Ruth Galloway arrives to supervise the opening of a coffin containing the bones of a medieval bishop. But upon arriving she finds the museums curator lying dead beside the coffin. It is only a matter of time before she and Detective Inspector Nelson cross paths once more, as he is called in to investigate.

   Together they discover that before the curators death the museums owner, Lord Smith, had received threatening letters demanding that he hand over the museums collection of Aborigine skulls. When he finds a dead snake in his stable yard, hes convinced its an evil portent.

   Following another senseless death, Ruth and Nelson become further embroiled in the case. But as Ruths close friends become involved, where will her loyalties lie? She and Nelson must discover how Aborigine skulls and drug smuggling may hold the answer to these deaths and their own survival in the latest installment of this “must-read” series (Associated Press).  

Synopsis:

“Griffiths is a true mystery writer, and shes become more accomplished at plotting with each book, though all involve connections to history and spirituality of a sort (though a very unconventional sort).” — Ann Arbor News
