"Griffiths expertly blends a well-wrought procedural with distinctive characters, academic politics, and romance. Fans old and new will be rewarded." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) for The Last Remains

"This brilliant series, brimming with comedy and compassion, has demonstrated that archaeology, just like the best crime fiction, is the study of everyday people . . . Elly Griffiths has honed her skills to become one of our very best writers. Bravo!" -- The Times (UK), for The Last Remains

"The Last Remains does not disappoint . . . it will have you laughing, crying, gasping and staring wide eyed, because Griffiths delivers a thrilling roller-coaster ride." -- Crime Fiction Lover

"Ruth Galloway is a remarkable, delightful character...A must-read for fans of crime and mystery fiction." -- Associated Press

"Forensic archeologist and academic Ruth Galloway is a captivating amateur sleuth--an inspired creation. I identified with her insecurities and struggles, and cheered her on." -- Louise Penny, author of the bestselling Armand Gamache series

"A well-plotted procedural that can hold its own with the genre's best." -- Wall Street Journal on Bleeding Heart Yard

"This droll romp is a latter-day Miss Marple." -- Washington Post on Postscript Murders
