Publisher Description

“Rich in atmosphere and history and blessed by [Griffith’s] continuing development of brilliant, feisty, independent Ruth . . . A Room Full of Bones, like its predecessors, works its magic on the reader's imagination.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch

When Ruth Galloway arrives to supervise the opening of a coffin containing the bones of a medieval bishop, she finds the museum’s curator lying dead on the floor. Soon after, the museum’s wealthy owner is also found dead, in his stables.

These two deaths could be from natural causes, but once again Ruth and DCI Harry Nelson cross paths during the investigation. When threatening letters come to light, events take an even more sinister turn. But as Ruth’s friends become involved, where will her loyalties lie? As her convictions are tested, Ruth and Nelson must discover how Aboriginal skulls, drug smuggling, and the mystery of “The Dreaming” hold the answers to these deaths, as well as the keys to their own survival.

“Lovers of well-written and intelligent traditional mysteries will welcome [Griffith’s] fourth book . . . A Room Full of Bones is a clever blend of history and mystery with more than enough forensic details to attract the more attentive reader.” —Denver Post

"Galloway is an Everywoman, smart, successful and a little bit unsure of herself. Readers will look forward to learning more about her." —USA Today

Best one yet

I’m reading the Ruth Galloway series in order and this is the best one so far. I appreciate the multiple story lines, but the best part is the author’s ability to communicate thoughts and feelings involved in complicated human relationships, particularly between Ruth and Nelson. Great book.

A Room Full of Bones

Wish I liked the characters

These are pretty well plotted mysteries set in an unusual and appealing site. Other than Cathbad, though, there's not a single likable character. Ruth, the hero, is neurotic and, in this book, has become an unpleasant and obsessive mommy; Nelson is just unpleasant; Detective Judy is stupid... My last buy in this series. I don't want perfect characters, but I do want to like the ones I'm spending a book with.
