I received an advance copy of this novel from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I have read, and I believe written reviews, on all of the novels in the Ruth Galoway series and I always start my review by cautioning the reader that these mysteries, which I suppose could be read as stand-alone novels, really work best when the entire series is read in order. There is just too much looking backward and reading them out of order would create a multitude of spoilers. Additionally, while they are separate mysteries, these novels are really mostly about Ruth, Cathbad, Nelson, and the other main characters, all of whom have slowly developed into three dimensional creations over the previous dozen installments. They have a lot of history together and regular readers of the series await the new installment just as much for the chance to catch up with old friends as for the current mystery. I would watch long running soap operas with my mother and she would point to a character and say “I remember when they were a child on this show.” Similarly, I get the feeling that I have watched Ruth’s daughter Kate (aka Katie aka Hecate) grow up like she was an actual person.

I don’t mean to downplay the actual mystery. Ruth #13 is a real action packed novel. More murders, more action, and a darker story line than usual but still within the comfort zone of those who enjoy this series. Ruth is as witty and charming as ever and just as prone to self-inflicted mishaps. I wish someone would break the 4th wall, just once, and ask her—“Ruth….seriously? Doesn’t this situation remind you of the even dozen other times you have rushed headlong into an obviously dangerous situation?” Oh well, we forgive her because she is one of the most entertaining protagonists in any current mystery series and she never disappoints.

If you have read the other novels, you need to get this one. The thriller aspect is ramped up a bit like in The Killing Fall and there is a delicious creepiness about the Black Dog House. Also, without giving anything away, there is a bit of a set up here that will make you hope that Elly Griffiths is already hard at work on #14 so you can see what happens next.

4 stars. Necessary reading for any Ruth Galloway fan.

Thank you to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for an advance copy of this novel. And thank you to Elly Griffiths for a really great series. ( )

The Night Hawks, a group of metal detectorists, are searching for buried treasure when they find a body on the beach in North Norfolk.

The dead man might be an asylum seeker but he turns out to be a local boy, Jem Taylor, recently released from prison. Nelson at first thinks that Taylor's death is accidental drowning, but a second death suggests murder.

Dr Ruth Galloway is called to investigate a hoard of Bronze Age weapons found by local metal detectorists. But the search takes a sinister turn when the detectorists begin to fall fatally ill and an apparent murder-suicide of a couple at the isolated Black Dog Farm—could it be an ancient curse?

This is my first Ruth Galloway book, but there is enough description of the characters and their past in the plot, so I didn’t feel like I missed much.

The plot flows smoothly with some intriguing elements, some of which are quite hard to believe. Apart from the main plot and investigation, I really enjoyed getting to know all the different characters. Each of their stories was so fascinating and made this book an even more enjoyable read!

Thank You NetGalley and Quercus Books for this ARC! ( )

Elly Griffiths' The Night hawks, the thirteenth novel in her Ruth Galloway series, is an impeccable mystery, deftly and deeply plotted and people by a diverse group of characters whose appeal and complexity grow with each new installment in the series. If you want mysteries that can function as novels in their own right, and not just as genre pieces, you'll find this novel deeply satisfying reading. I received a free electronig review copy of this title from the publisher; the opinions are my own. ( )

A group of amateur detectorists come across a body and call in the police. Nelson calls Ruth Galloway as forensic archaeologist but she is far more excited about the bronze age burial site nearby. Then the police are called to a murder-suicide at a lonely farmhouse and slowly Nelson begins to realise that the two are linked.
The Ruth Galloway mysteries are just a really wonderful series to devour. I love the North Norfold setting, there is a passion to the descriptions of landscape and the wide vistas evoke a loneliness and isolation which helps set the scene. The knowledge of local lore is beautifully interwoven into each tale and the characters are well set and developing with each tale. Nothing feels rushed or forced, the solutions are clear and do not seem contrived and the entertainment value is really high ( )

I need to thank whomever it was that encouraged me to read the Ruth Galloway books two years ago. I now patiently wait for the next in the series to be published. I adore Ruth and her daughter Kate and all the rest of the main crew, and I really like how the scientific information isn't overdone and fits the story lines well. I fully recommend this series to anyone who enjoys mysteries or crime novels.

(Thanks to NetGalley for this ebook in exchange for an honest review.)
