The Dark Angel finds Ruth and her daughter Katie accepting an invitation to Italy from an old archeologist colleague, to have a holiday (and look at some newly uncovered bones, of course). And before you can say by ‘murder’, the local priest is found dead in his church, and DCI Nelson appears, with Cathbad in tow.
I confess that the Ruth Galloway series is my not-so-secret guilty pleasure!
I missed the Norfolk setting, but I appreciate that Griffiths wanted to introduce a more exotic setting to escape Ruth’s hometown turning into another Midsommer!
For lovers of this series, I can safely recommend this latest instalment, which contains a number of surprises in the personal lives of the characters. If you are new to the series, I highly recommend reading them in order, starting with The Crossing Places.
