Description

In this thrilling mystery, "brilliant, feisty, independent" forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway and DCI Harry Nelson investigate a seemingly cursed collection of Aboriginal skulls that are causing people to die from a mysterious fever??-??and the next person to fall ill is Nelson himself (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. DCI Harry Nelson is called in to investigate, thrusting him into Ruth's path 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 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
