Nelson, Ruth and The Dreaming!!??,
This review is from: A Room Full of Bones: The Dr Ruth Galloway Mysteries 4 (Paperback)
This might be a little too far-fetched for most tastes. A fictitious place called The Dreaming where one enters the spiritual world of the Indigenous people in Australia forms quite a heavy back-drop to this story. Very enjoyable but rather complex with Animal Rights, The Dreaming, stables and derring-do, it was at times difficult to focus on this as a CF novel. Then there was Nelson's and Ruth's relationship, Kate starting to grow, her first word Dada and so on. I'm happy to award 4**** but I'm not sure I'll continue with this series. Quite entertaining but I found myself wishing it would draw to a close. Ruth and Nelson are certainly well-developed characters now but I'm unsure where this series is going. It has certainly made a change from the usual police procedural. Nelson reminds me so much of a latter-day Morse or Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks. I guess all of these fit a mould.
