Publisher's Summary

From the Sunday Times best-selling author, the 10th Dr Ruth Galloway mystery - celebrating 10 years of Ruth.
Dr Ruth Galloway is flattered when she receives a letter from Italian archaeologist Dr Angelo Morelli, asking for her help. He's discovered a group of bones in a tiny hilltop village near Rome but doesn't know what to make of them. It's years since Ruth has had a holiday, and even a working holiday to Italy is very welcome!
So Ruth travels to Castello degli Angeli, accompanied by her daughter Kate and friend Shona. In the town she finds a baffling Roman mystery and a dark secret involving the war years and the Resistance. To her amazement she also soon finds Harry Nelson, with Cathbad in tow. But there is no time to overcome their mutual shock - the ancient bones spark a modern murder, and Ruth must discover what secrets there are in Castello degli Angeli that someone would kill to protect.

A great listen, excellent work!

The trouble with each new Ruth Galloway title by Elly Griffiths that I purchase on pre-order is that as soon as it's in my account I must listen to it in large chunks, and then I am left waiting for the next title!

Book 10 has a different landscape, which was a really interesting insight, the subject matter is interesting, and I can always relate Ruth's concerns and worries. Another excellent listen, when is book 11 being released?

This Needs to End

Initially I found the Dr Ruth Galloway Series an excellent read but Book 9 lacked believability in many ways but Book 10 " The Dark Angle", has really ended this series for me. I resent I actualy bought the book and found that when Nelson and co just happen to arrive in Italy near Ruth, I could not be bothered reading any more fanciful stuff.

For me in reading and enjoying fiction there needs to be strong elements of believability in the story for me to continue reading. But this offering from Elly Griffiths kills thd series dead for me.

If you too have been a fan then borrow from a library or partner buy but that is my last read of this series.

Ruth Galloway saga

Love this series, hope the author is hard at work on the next book. I have grown to love all the central characters.
