Do you know that feeling when you eagerly anticipate the new novel in a favourite series? I have several of these faves and the Ruth Galloway series by Elly Griffiths is probably my number one!
Dr Ruth Galloway is an English forensic archaeologist who, it must be said, has a complicated life. I always find myself drawn into the stories in this series, with their mix of archaeology, police procedural plots and, above all, the personal lives of Ruth and all who enter her life.
I read this novel in one day, while waiting at a hospital (long story). Sadly, I have to wait until 2018 for the next instalment!
The Chalk Pit is the ninth in the series. You can read more about the book on Goodreads.
