The Janus Stone: A Ruth Galloway Investigation: A Case for Investigator Ruth Galloway, Forensic Archaeologist
4 journalers for this copy...
Forensics expert Ruth Galloway is called in to investigate when builders, demolishing a large old house in Norwich to make way for a new development, uncover the skeleton of a child – minus the skull – beneath a doorway. Is it some ritual sacrifice or just plain straightforward murder? DCI Harry Nelson must find out.
The house was once a children's home. Nelson meets the Catholic priest who used to run the home. He tells him that two children did go missing forty years before – a boy and a girl. They were never found. When carbon dating proves that the child's bones predate the children's home, Ruth is drawn more deeply into the case. But as spring turns to summer it becomes clear that someone is trying very hard to put her off the scent by frightening her half to death...
I love this series and this book was just as good, if not better, than the previous. I love that the author twists ancient times and the present to create a totally unputdownable story. And I absolutley adore Ruth, I dont know why, but she reminds me a bit of Agatha Raisin from M.C. Beatons books ;0/ I cant wait to get stuck into the next book in the series.
CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
I will be lending this to a friend, but it should come back to me after she had finished it.
Hope you have a wonderful birthday :-)
I've read one in the series and also really liked the characters, so am looking forward to reading this.
Another good Ruth Galloway mystery, although I think I enjoyed the first book in the series a little more. Will have to see how the story progresses though, as these are such interesting characters :)
