  • Paromjit
    This is the tenth in the series featuring Dr Ruth Galloway, the forensic archaeologist set in Norfolk. Ruth has been experiencing an emotionally stressful time when her hopes of cementing a relationship with DI Harry Nelson are dashed with his wife, Michelle, becoming pregnant. It is the summer holidays, and Ruth is contacted by Professor Angelo Morelli asking her for her expertise in a excavated skeleton in Italy. Angelo is a famous TV archaeolo...

    For long-time fans of the delightful Ruth Galloway (newbies should start at the beginning of the series), this takes Ruth out of her usual setting and places her in Italy. With some plot manipulation, Griffiths gets Nelson there, too, and we have two rather thin crime plots unravelling, one at home and one in Italy. As ever, plot is shown to be Griffiths' weakness - but Ruth is such a great character, and the narrative voice so slyly funny that I...

    I can't believe that this is the 10th book in the series featuring Dr Ruth Galloway, as it doesn't seem that long ago since the first one came out. Once you get into this series, it's very addictive. In this one, Ruth goes to Italy on the request of an old flame, a TV archeologist who wants her help with a skeleton he's dug up. She takes her daughter Kate with her, and her friend Shona and her son Louis. But there's soon more to investigate than ...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Quercus Books for an advance copy of The Dark Angel, the 10th novel in the forensic archaeologist Dr Ruth Galloway series.Ruth, while not perhaps unhappy, is feeling dissatisfied and unsettled so when ex-flame Dr Angelo Morelli invites her to Italy to consult on some bones he has found she doesn't think twice and together with best friend Shona and her son Louis she and Kate take a much needed break. Unfortunat...

    I am a big fan of Dr Ruth Galloway, the forensic archaeologist heroine of Elly Griffith’s wonderful series and I was over the moon to receive the tenth book in the series ‘Dark Angel’ as a review copy from NetGalley and Quercus books. I must say I was not disappointed- Ms Griffiths is bang on form and I could not put this book down from the moment it appeared on my Kindle! The story takes Ruth out of her normal Norfolk milieu and transports...

    Feeling troubled by the events in the previous book, Dr. Ruth Galloway is pleased when a face from her past, Dr. Angelo Morelli, contacts her, seeking her assistance on bones that have been discovered in a small Italian village. Accompanied by her friend Shona and their children, they head off to the continent, where they find a village still clinging on to memories of the Second World War and the Resistance. The past and present collide however,...
  • Caroline
    What a read, compelling and fascinating I like the twining threads of plot. And that the novel leaves you with more questions than it answers a real shining example of Elly' writing which continues to go from strength to strength. With some shocking events it won't leave you dry eyed at the end. A massive 5/5 stars from me

    Thank you to Netgalley, the author and the Publisher, Quercus Books, for this review copy which was given in exchange for an honest review.This is the 10th book in the Ruth Galloway Series. It can be read as a standalone novel but it does obviously make sense to read them in order to understand the back story of the characters. There is helpful Who’s Who at the end of this book though for those who haven’t read the previous books.Ruth is back...

    Having read all of the Ruth Galloway books, this was an auto read for me. I seem to say it every time with this series but it really is my comfort read.In this book Ruth is summoned by her old friend Angelo to help date some bones in an Italian dig. Ruth, along with daughter Katie, friend Shona her young son Louis, fly to Italy. Shona is looking forward to a 2 week vacation with the children while Ruth is hoping she can soon relax as well. Unfort...

    I am a fan of the Ruth Galloway series and look forward to them. It is like meeting up with old friends. Dark Angel starts fast you are gripped within the 2 pages of the prologue.This story is set in Italy with Ruth looking at old Roman bones, and asked for her opinion on them. However Ruth finds herself drawn into the WW2 wartime history of the local town.At the same time Nelson is finding his past coming back to haunt him, in the form of a guy ...

    3.5 starsSlightly mixed feelings on this one.It was lovely to be back with Ruth,Nelson,judy,Cathbad etc etc .... having read all the previous books the was something comforting about returning and seeing where we are going next.I fear Michelle's pregnancy is about to become the longest pregnancy ever to stretch out the question of paternity.On a negative side,I felt there wasn't enough digging up of bones,or investigating murder... everything see...

    Elly Griffiths is one of my favourite authors and I absolutely love her Ruth Galloway mysteries. These feature Ruth (a forensic archaeologist) and Nelson (a Detective Chief Inspector) investigating a series of murders, usually with some historical connection. There are also other reoccurring characters, such as the druid Cathbad (I adore Cathbad!), along with Ruth's friends and Nelson's police colleagues. I loved this book! (You knew I was going ...

    What a fantastic opening paragraph! A real, wham bam, no messing about start to a book.Ruth is taken out of north Norfolk and flies to Italy. Elly Griffiths mixes her genres and introduces Ruth to her Italian side more usually seen in her books written as Domenica de Rosa. There is a love interest in the dashing Angelo and mysteries abound as the skeleton is joined by strange graffiti, skulls and a few deaths.Back in England Nelson’s wife is pr...

    Thanks Quercus Books and netgalley for this ARC.Elly Griffiths knows her audience, her stuff, and I''ll be a fan for life. This is one of the best mystery series out there today. It's always growing, new, and fresh. Seeing Italy thru Ruth's eyes will be a experience. I loved the sense that everything is coming to a explosive head soon. Can't wait for the next book.
  • Jennifer
    I love Ruth. She’s like a (much) cooler version of myself. In this installment an old colleague invites Ruth to assist on a dig in Italy. The actual mystery, though, is almost incidental. The real joy here is in the development of the Ruth-Nelson-Michele-Tim relationship that has been brewing throughout the series.
