Product description

From the Inside Flap

Forensic archeologist Ruth Galloway investigates her most complicated case to date: two people affiliated with a museum housing aboriginal skulls succumb to a mysterious fever that later threatens the life of DCI Harry Nelson.

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 the museum's wealthy owner lies dead in his stables, too.

These two deaths could be from natural causes, but when he is called in to investigate, Nelson isn't convinced, and it is only a matter of time before he and Ruth cross paths once more. 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 answer to these deaths, as well as the keys to their own survival.

From the Back Cover

PRAISE FOR THE RUTH GALLOWAY MYSTERY SERIES

"Elly Griffiths draws us all the way back to prehistoric times . . . Highly atmospheric." —The New York Times Book Review

“Ruth is one of the more wonderful creations in recent crime fiction.” —Ann Arbor News

“Ruth Galloway is a remarkable, delightful character: brilliant, wry, determined, and independent, almost to a fault—readers are sure to clamor for the next book in the series.” —Associated Press

“Elly Griffiths’s Ruth Galloway—a forensic archeologist who is prickly, tough, awkward, and vulnerable—makes for the perfect amateur sleuth, and jaded copper Harry Nelson is the perfect foil. These books are must-reads—I can’t wait for the next one.” —Deborah Crombie, author of the Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James series


“Forensic archeologist Ruth Galloway stirs up fears and passions among the living even as she unearths Iron Age remains. She’s an uncommon, down-to-earth heroine whose acute insight, wry humor, and depth of feeling make her a thoroughly engaging companion.” —Erin Hart, Agatha and Anthony Award–nominated author of Haunted Ground and Lake of Sorrows
