'My favourite current series' Val McDermid Everything has changed for Dr Ruth Galloway. She has a new job, home and partner, and is no longer North Norfolk police's resident forensic archaeologist. That is, until convicted murderer Amyas March offers to make DCI Nelson a deal. Nelson was always sure that March killed more women than he was charged with. Now March confirms this, and offers to show Nelson where the other bodies are buried - but only if Ruth will do the digging. Curious, but wary, Ruth agrees. March tells Ruth that he killed four more women and that their bodies are buried near a village bordering the fens, said to be haunted by the Lantern Men, mysterious figures holding lights that lure travellers to their deaths. Is Amyas March himself a lantern man, luring Ruth back to Norfolk? What is his plan, and why is she so crucial to it? And are the killings really over?… (lisätietoja)

The beginning of this book took me by surprise! Ruth has changed jobs, and moved into Cambridge (and I have only missed 2 books in the series!). She even has a new partner. I presume she is trying to establish a life without Harry Nelson. She and Katie are settled in their new surroundings and relationships, have been there about two years I think, but she thinks of Nelson constantly.

But all comes unstuck when convicted murderer Ivor March offers to tell Nelson where some more bodies are buried, on condition that Ruth does the excavation. So once again Ruth and Nelson are thrown together and life become compliacted.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Elly Griffiths has lost none of her touch. ( )

I received an advance reading copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

I always start my reviews of the latest Ruth Galloway novel with the advice that these are best read in order to get full enjoyment. With Agatha Christie’s Poirot or Marple, the detectives stay pretty much the same—it is only the location, plot, and the setting of the mystery that is different. In the Ruth Galloway series the characters undergo major life changes and we are right there in the middle of it. If you read these books out of order you miss that. Worse still, there are spoilers that tell of things that happened in prior installments.

The series is like a really good soap opera. I mean that in a good way. I remember my mother pointing to a character in TV’s Days of Our Lives and saying “I remember her when she was just a child”—referencing the character, not the actor. The character had achieved a level of reality in her mind. It is certainly that way in the Galloway series is for me. Ruth has a 9 year old daughter Kate and I found myself comparing her to my own 9 year old grandchild and thinking back to Kate’s birth early in the series and thinking it amazing that she was that old already. Like she was real. Like all of these characters feel real. I am often as much interested in what is going on with Ruth, Nelson, and everyone’s favorite—Cathbad-- as I am in the actual mystery, at least until it gets going. Ms. Griffiths writes with such humor and obvious affection for her characters that this series is tremendous fun to read.

I don’t like to give away any plot elements because I tend to think that in a mystery novel anything is a spoiler. Even saying that a novel has a plot twist has you looking for it and guessing what it is—completely eliminating the surprise. So without telling you what happens, I will say that The Lantern Men was quite good. Honestly, there isn’t a bad novel in this series, and there are several great ones. It was lighter on the historical/anthropological aspects than other novels in the series, which was a minus for me. On the other hand, I found the eccentric group of artistic friends that may or may not be murderers to be very interesting, and convicted murderer Ivor March is one of her most interesting characters. The forensics aspect was also very well done.

I read a lot of mysteries, usually darker than this series, but the Ruth Galloway mysteries are my happy place and I look forward to the new installment that comes out in the spring each year. Start the series from the beginning and you are in for a real treat. You will grow to love these characters and greatly enjoy your time in their company and will learn a few things along the way.

4 stars. ( )

Ah, how nice to be back with Ruth G. and the Saltmarsh and all that. The knots in the romantic part of this ongoing story are ongoing, of course. In the mystery part, young, tall women are being killed with remarkable regularity. The whole cast is present, and a few little twists add spice. ( )

I enjoy this series and the characters, and the Norfolk setting, The series is a bit repititious, with the murders, but relations between the characters develop, albeit slowly. Every once in a while I read one. ( )
