"In the next Ruth Galloway mystery, a vision of the Virgin Mary foreshadows a string of cold-blooded murders, revealing a dark current of religious fanaticism in an old medieval town. Known as England's Nazareth, the medieval town of Little Walsingham is famous for religious apparitions. So when Ruth Galloway's druid friend Cathbad sees a woman in a white dress and a dark blue cloak standing alone in the local cemetery one night, he takes her as a vision of the Virgin Mary. But then a woman wrapped in blue cloth is found dead the next day, and Ruth's old friend Hilary, an Anglican priest, receives a series of hateful, threatening letters. Could these crimes be connected? When one of Hilary's fellow female priests is murdered just before Little Walsingham's annual Good Friday Passion Play, Ruth, Cathbad, and DCI Harry Nelson must team up to find the killer before he strikes again"--… (mais)

Jag har gillat Griffith och Ruth Galloway men tycker att hon i princip skrivit samma bok gång på gång. Ingenting har utvecklats varken hos karaktärer eller framförallt intrigen. I denna bok är det en lite annorlunda infallsvinkel. Det är småtrevligt och lättlyssnat som tidsfördriv. ( )

Es ist immer wieder ein Vergnügen, die Charaktere dieser Reihe beim Lösen eines Falles zu begleiten. Ich bevorzuge Krimis ohne allzu blutige Szenen und inszenierte Gewalt - hier bin ich immer wieder gut bedient. Die Charaktere bleiben interessant (auch wenn mir die Beziehungsprobleme manchmal ein wenig zu viel Raum einnehmen), die Themen vielseitig und auch humorvolle Elemente kommen nicht zu kurz.

Still very readable but, I thought the crime rather took a back seat to the shenanigans of the main characters.

The reason for the crime just didn't really ring true. Everyone's entitle to the odd misfire, and if the next book is back to top form, I'll happily forgive this mid-series plot on mover. ( )

I think this is the eighth novel featuring Dr Ruth Galloway, lecturer in archaeology at the University of North Norfolk, and I am impressed at how successfully Elly Griffiths has kept the series moving forward. Her characters are very strong, with a highly plausible frisson of antagonism between them.

Ruth herself is an excellent protagonist, balancing the demands of her professional life with those of a single parent, living in a fairly remote cottage by the sea with Kate, her five-year-old daughter, and Flint, her trusty cat. In addition to her academic role, she has helped the local police on several occasions when old bones have been unearthed, helping to date them, and provide any other forensic evidence that might emerge. Despite this, her relations with the local police are awkward, not least because the head of DID, Detective Chief Inspector Harry Nelson is also Kate’s father. While this has never been publicly acknowledged, a growing number of people, including most of Nelson’s colleagues are aware of it.

Also on the fringes of the police circle is Michael Malone, sometime laboratory assistant at the university, but more prominently known as Cathbad, leading light of the local Druid community (more extensive than might be imagined). For reasons too complex to expand upon here, Cathbad has become close to both Ruth and DCI Nelson, despite the strong scepticism initially felt by both of them. In a further complication, Cathbad is also living with Judy Johnson, one of Nelson’s Detective Sergeants.

In this story, Ruth is contacted by Hilary, a friend from her own student days. Although they had both been studying archaeology, Hilary is no longer involved in this field. She has, instead, become an Anglican priest, and when a theological conference brings her to North Norfolk, she re-establishes contact with Ruth. It turns out that Hilary has been receiving some hate mail, including a couple of recent letters that have featured threats if she should choose to attend the conference. Having read of Kate’s previous involvement with some highly publicised cases, Hilary asks for her advice, and the letters are passed on to DCI Nelson and his team.

They take on additional significance when, as the conference approaches, a young woman is found murdered outside the venue in which the conference will be held. As if this were not enough, one the conference begins, one of the delegates who bears an unusually close resemblance to the murdered woman, is also murdered by similar means.

Elly Griffiths’s success with this series lies in her ability to blend her plausible, well drawn characters with soundly constructed plots. The clues are all there for the observant reader … well even for the less observant ones such as myself – I didn’t spot the murdered this time. The tensions between the principal characters, and the challenges that they face in their respective domestic situations, are all very delicately and cleverly moved forward. ( )

A good one, humorously written. Interesting to study the way she dies dialogue and thought interspersed

Weep, weep, O Walsingham,

Whose dayes are nights,

Blessings turned to blasphemies,

Holy deeds to despites.

Sinne is where Our Ladye sate,

Heaven turned is to helle;

Satan sitthe where Our Lord did swaye,

Walsingham, O farewell!
