About this deal

This review and others are also published on Twitter, Instagram and my webpage https://sandysbookaday. Thoroughly enjoyed the intricately woven tale involving the Elginists repatriating the bones of Indigenous Australian back to their homes. Book Three in this series ended with a bit of a cliffhanger and at the beginning of book four, it’s resolved.

I loved working in publishing and eventually became Editorial Director for children’s books at HarperCollins. As the series progresses and readers learn more about the secondary characters who surround Ruth, the tension between the pairings of Shona and Phil, DS Dave Clough and field archaeologist, Trace and the more recent development of DS Judy Johnson and Cathbad come into their own and these elements become almost as critical to proceedings as the Nelson and Ruth connection. The first thing I have to say about this book is that is soooo boring and so do yourselves a favour and just DON'T read it especially if you are fan of crime/mystery novels! But she is very involved with the central characters and these novels are as much about the characters as the mystery.in " The BookBrowse Review" - BookBrowse's membership magazine, and in our weekly " Publishing This Week" newsletter.

DISCLOSURE: Thank you to Waitomo District Library for the loan of A Room Full of Bonesby Elly Griffiths for review. The museum in King's Lynn is preparing for an unusual event - the opening of a coffin excavated from the site of a medieval church. I bought this partially because it is based in Norfolk where I live and partially because reviews suggested that it was a gritty and gripping crime book.Publication information is for the USA, and (unless stated otherwise) represents the first print edition. A Room Full of Bones has several mysteries running through it increasing Nelson's workload - that of the dead curator; another unexpected death; and an influx of cheap cocaine into the area. Add into this the mysterious foreigner - who happens to be tall and handsome - and odd - and you have pretty much collected all of the characters you would expect to see on a BBC drama.

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. She has dug up the bones of a girl who died over two thousand years ago, an Iron Age girl whose perfectly preserved arm still wore its bracelet of dried grass.

One of the characters that is married gets pregnant and just ends things with her lover and it doesn't cross her mind that it might be his or she is so unethical that wants to bestow the child to her husband even though it might not be his! The coffin was discovered during the construction of a supermarket and was brought to the museum for an official opening. This one felt more choppy than the first three books: There are multiple people/places/events in paragraphs in many chapters that often made me eager to get back to the people/places/events that had just been left. The characters are constantly engaging - particularly the vulnerable Ruth - the writing is perceptive, as well as wryly humorous .
