The Janus Stone (Ruth Galloway) by Elly Griffiths
When the excavation for luxury condominiums unearths artifacts from the Roman times, the discovery of the skeletal remains of a young child raise all sorts of questions. The archeologists call upon Ruth Galloway, a forensic archeologist who has developed a working relationship and credibility with the police investigators.
While the artifacts date hundreds of years, the body is relatively recent. Galloway and the police uncover details of children that had gone missing on the site. The first mystery leads to another. While the discovery of deaths lead to further questions - and to a gripping forensic mystery.
Elly Griffith’s second novel with forensic anthropologist Ruth Galloway, The Janus Stone delivers complex characters, an unpredictable plot, and a satisfying escape. Fans of forensic detective novels and British mysteries will surely enjoy this new series with the strong and sympathetic Ruth Galloway
