Can’t Wait Wednesday: The Stone Circle by Elly Griffiths

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. This is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. The books I choose aren’t released yet and usually won’t be published for at least two or three months. So I have a while to wait!

I love finding out about books which will publish in future months and I like to share my excitement about the books. I also like to find out about new books on other people’s blogs and hope they’ll sometimes find something to look forward to on my blog.

I’m excited to read . . .

The Stone Circle by Elly Griffiths

Series: Ruth Galloway #11

Published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Publishing date: May 7

Genre: Mystery

Synopsis: DCI Nelson has been receiving threatening letters. They are anonymous, yet reminiscent of ones he has received in the past, from the person who drew him into a case that’s haunted him for years. At the same time, Ruth receives a letter purporting to be from that very same person—her former mentor, and the reason she first started working with Nelson. But the author of those letters is dead. Or is he?

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


I love this series! Ruth is a forensic archaeologist and throughout these books she’s called in by DCI Nelson and the police to check on the ages of bones. Sometimes the bones police find are from more recent murder victims and sometimes they’re thousands of years older! Good characters and good mysteries.
