The Crossing Places (Ruth Galloway, #1) by Elly Griffiths

The Crossing Places by Elly Griffiths

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Give me the liminal places, the fog and the ocean, the friendships gone sideways and the ex-lovers. Give me the sublime coastal causeways, eerie bird calls, ancient skeletons, and hauntingly-vanished children. Give me several possible villains against a sarcastic and self-possessed woman, and I won’t even care that I figured out the whodunnit of it all halfway through, because all of those possible villains were pushy and dangerous and didn’t want to take no for an answer, and the satisfaction wasn’t in the reveal, it was Ruth saying no and shutting them down one by one. Give me more Ruth.
