Elly Griffiths – The Stone Circle


Dr. Ruth Galloway returns to North Norfolk in her latest chilling adventure. DCI Nelson has been receiving threatening letters. They are anonymous yet somehow familiar. They read like the letters that first drew him into the case of the Crossing Places and to Ruth.

But the author of those letters is dead. Or are they?

The past is reaching out for Ruth and Nelson, and its grip is deadly.

Our narrator has competent, posh voice. Yet removed and as icy as the East Anglia setting. Most objectionable, however, was the fabricated phone sound effect. Boosting the mid-range to try to emulate decades old phone calls was both annoying and difficult to hear. Truly, phones haven’t sounded like that since Bell called Watson.
I like Ruth and the anthropology/archaeology settings. So much of this book is given to referring to previous, dragging story lines that just kills the drama. Maybe Ms. Griffiths could publish a version that did not repeat so many old plot points. I rarely return or exchange a book, but this one is going back.
