Amazing as always,
This review is from: The Outcast Dead: A Ruth Galloway Investigation (Ruth Galloway series Book 6) (Kindle Edition)
I think it is important to say before I start this review that I love Elly Griffiths. She has fast become one of my favourite authors and this book does nothing to change this. Elly Griffiths is that rare writing talent that can mix; historical fact, familiar character developments and a dame good thriller into one.
This book is one of the best I have read from her and as usual I find myself enthralled by the historical information which is passed throughout this book. The book also has a fair amount of dealing with familiar characters such as Cathbad, Ruth and Nelson. Whilst reading this story you find yourself investing in all the characters as you always have. I am as excited to know what happens to my favourites as I am to solve the mystery.
This mystery is as good as any others she has written. The story kept you guessing until the last minute and I found myself working out who was the culprit at exactly the same time as the lead characters. The story is harrowing in places and on more than one occasion I found a tear coming to my eye.
This is a brilliant read as a stand alone or if you are a fan like me.
