STAFF REVIEW: Crossing Places by Elly Griffiths
I was intrigued by a title later in this series and decided I needed to read from the beginning. This is an interesting character in a fascinating setting. Dr. Ruth Galloway is a forensic archeologist in Northern England. Here she is called in to examine the skeleton of a young girl found in the salt marsh Is this a recent murder or an ancient one? The archeological elements are very interesting, and Ruth is a smart, complex figure. The book is a little dark in places and there are some violent elements, but, overall, I think I will continue with this series. Recommended by Sarah Young.
The first entry in the acclaimed Ruth Galloway series follows the "captivating"* archaeologist as she investigates a child's bones found on a nearby beach, thought to be the remains of a little girl who went missing ten years before.
