A Ruth Galloway Mystery
The letter tells of a great archeological discovery, but Dan also says that he is scared. Was Dan’s death linked to his find? The only clue is his mention of the Raven King, an ancient name for King Arthur.
Then Ruth is invited to examine the bones Dan found. Ruth travels to Lancashire—the hometown of DCI Nelson—with both her 18-month-old daughter, Kate, and her druid friend, Cathbad, in tow. She discovers a campus living in fear of a sinister right-wing group called the White Hand. She also finds that the bones revealed a shocking fact about King Arthur—and they’ve mysteriously vanished. When Nelson, visiting his mother in Blackpool, learns about the case, he is drawn into the investigation, especially when Ruth and his beloved Kate seem to be in danger. Who is willing to kill to keep the bones a secret?(cover image and synopsis from Netgalley)
The Ruth Galloway stories continue to be one of my most favorite series. I just love the way the author let’s us get into the thoughts of all the main character. Ruth has such a dry sense of humor! She has the normal struggles of a working Mom and it is always interesting to see her relationships progress in each new book. She’s comfortable with being single and on her own with her daughter Kate. I always get excited when I find out there is a new book in the series and this one did not disappoint me.
Thank you to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and Netgalley for allowing me to read this in exchange for an unbiased review.
