I am going to go with 3 1/2 stars because I like the series so much.

This is the fourth in a series and I have read them all, more or less in order. I read #3 first and then went back to catch up. The stories build off of each other, the characters develop, and key events from prior novels are mentioned so it is best to read them in order to avoid spoilers and get the full enjoyment.

I am a huge fan of this series and I recommend it highly to people who enjoy light mysteries with a good bit of humor mixed in. I also really enjoy these characters and the archaeological focus to the mysteries.

This was my least favorite of the series because it got away from my favorite aspects. Rather than archaeology this book deals with anthropology and history and even these elements, which I would have found to be very interesting, are not really driving the story. While there is a "room full of bones," the real mystery deals with drug trafficking, with the trademark elements of this series serving as window dressing. It also did not help that the characters Ruth (and Kate), Cathbad, and Nelson played very minor roles in this installment and didn't assist in solving any of the crimes/mysteries involved.

I still love the way Ms. Griffiths writes and am a staunch fan of the series, but this one disappointed me.

This is a very good entry in the Ruth Galloway series. Ruth is called to examine a "collection" of likely aboriginal bones to determine whether they are in fact human, as well as the recently exhumed skeleton of a centuries-dead bishop whose coffin turned up in an excavation. All are in the possession of the wealthy Smith family, whose ancestor was responsible for bringing the human relics from Australia generations ago, and who can claim the bishop as family. Nothing is easy, naturally. The skeleton turns out to be full of surprises, and an activist group is determined that the Australian remains be repatriated so that the Old Ones can be at peace. Ruth's Druid friend Cathbad is in the midst of everything as usual. Nelson's wife has issued an ultimatum, and he's not making any progress with an investigation into a drug ring operating on his turf. People associated with those bones are mysteriously dying, and the horses in the Smith's prestigious racing stables seem to be suffering an inordinate amount of colic. It's nonsense, really, but there is that story about the bishop putting a curse on anyone who would ever disturb his remains by opening his coffin... ( )

Good - from the library. I’ll order book 5 in the series. It’s odd though that Kate at one is precisely like a two year old in her language skills.... elly has twins but must have forgotten!

Another great book in the series. Love this series ( )

A good entry in this sometimes slow but interesting series. Murders? drug smuggling; so much for the quiet life of a college professor. Single mom raising an infant, weird friends, didgeridoo music and native Australian dances add to the strange mix currently in Ruth Galloway's never humdrum life. Oh yes, there are also two mysterious deaths ( )

The English writer Elly Griffiths loves contradiction. In A Room Full of Bones, she gives us a possibly homicidal animal rights’ activist married to a trainer of racehorses. Then there’s the recently wedded police detective, female, who is having an affair with a man who turns out to be a suspect in a murder case. And, also typically for Griffiths, we get the dashing druid whose day job is as a dreary man of science at its most humble level.

This list, tantalizing in its promises, doesn’t include Griffiths’s two central characters, both of whom, adorable as they are, represent scads of contradiction. DCI Harry Nelson is the ace sleuth in all of North Norfolk, somewhat abrupt by nature and super organized (Harry loves lists). Ruth Galloway, rather overweight and inclined to the solitary life, heads up the forensic archeology department at the University of North Norfolk.

In the previous three books in the series, Harry and Ruth were frequently thrown together in the interests of solving murders. On the one momentous occasion they slept together, the intimacy led to Ruth’s pregnancy and later to the birth of Kate. A baby daughter suited the single Ruth just fine. Harry, on the other hand, had to answer to the beautiful Michelle, to whom he has been happily married for 20 years.

In the new book, the triangle of cause and effect involving Harry, Ruth and Michelle is played for all it’s worth, which is plenty in terms of melodrama. The current state of the complicated relationships pumps up the emotional level over that of the earlier books, giving a new density to the series, a sense that events are no longer taking place exclusively on the surface.

Meanwhile, Harry and Ruth must deal with an inexplicable upswing in local drug trafficking, two unfathomable deaths, some funny business at a horse racing stable, numerous interventions by the druid fellow, and countless episodes of mysterious contradiction. Just typical reading time in the company of Elly Griffiths’s friendly, funny and involving series.
