Inveterate mystery lovers, we've just finished a brand spanking new novel, the debut of author Elly Griffiths. The Crossing Places features archaeologist-turned-sleuth Ruth Galloway, who, "when not digging up bones or other ancient objects...lives happily alone with her cats in a remote area of England called the Saltmarsh." Detective Chief Inspector Harry Nelson enlists Ruth's help when he finds bones he thinks belong to a little girl who's been missing for a decade.
If you are looking for a fresh, new series, this would be a good novel to check out! Not a heavy or dark read, the mystery was well thought out & readers learn a bit about archaeology in the bargain.
