For those invested in the Ruth Galloway series characters, it's worth the read. But the plot gets downright silly at times and you have to seriously suspend your disbelief for this one.

Over the course of the series I have become extremely fond of the main characters, the forensic archeologist Ruth and the police detective Nelson, who love each other and their little two year old girl, but cannot be together because Nelson is a married man with a family. The strange, racist secret society seems rather improbable to me, but it was fun to read about the possibility of King Arthur's grave being found, and I enjoy reading what all can be discovered from a study of ancient bones.

Any flicker of mystery has been smothered by the gooey treacle of domesticity. Babies and todlers have put the kybosh on any intrigue proferred by the current case involving Ruth Galloway. In fact, this is more a fantasy, what with a cute, cuddly, utterly docile pit bull terrier being the perfect play companion for a two-year old child. Boring, rehashed, politically correct characterizations impeling the reader to reach the conclusion as mercifully quickly as possible.

Absorbing, but the author's credibility has been strained a bit too far this time around.

This is the fifth in the Ruth Galloway series. She becomes involved in a mystery through her job a forensic anthropologist. She is a regular person, over weight and a single mother. Full of interesting characters. I am not only entertained but learn something as well.

Not the strongest of the series but it does end with some changes for a few of the regular characters.

A pro forma set up with her usual characters. Not very compelling or outstanding.
