Ruth Galloway receives a phone call that bears shocking news. A friend of hers from college, Dan Golding, has been killed in a fire at his Lancashire home. Her shock turns to alarm when she gets a letter from Dan. He has made a discovery that will change archaeology forever but he needs Ruth's advice. Even more alarming, he sounds vulnerable and frightened. DCI Harry Nelson is also rediscovering his past. Up north for a holiday, he meets his former colleague Sandy MacLeod, now at Blackpool CID. Sandy tells him there are strange circumstances surrounding Dan Golding's death. Many of those who worked with Dan seem to be afraid.

Many have secrets to hide. Ruth is drawn deep into the mystery, and where she goes, so does her toddler daughter, Kate. This time, it's not just Ruth's life at risk.

    " You know how sometimes you start a series with high hopes because the first is so fantastic but the books get progressively worse as you go along? I was worried that was the case with this series because I loved the first but the subsequent books weren't as great. I'm so happy I stuck with the Ruth Galloway series because "A Dying Fall" was as good if not better than the first! My only peeve is Ruth and Nelson's relationship - I hope he gets more involved in his daughter's life in the next book! I listened to the audio format of this book and the narrator was excellent - she was so skilled with the accents and different voices that I forgot it was just one person speaking! "

    " I absolutely love the Ruth Galloway series and I keep thinking how can they get any better, well for me, this book did. I loved the setting of Lancashire and being a big Time Team fan I always love that archeology is such a big part of all the books. "

    " Elly Griffths' Ruth Galloway, the forensic anthropologist, who stars in this series has a cynical outlook on life, perhaps because she deals with hundreds year old corpses. The series' characters are eccentrics living on the English marshes including a druid who add humor and pathos. Ruth's involvement with a homicide detective brings a young daughter to her life which includes lecturing in archaeology at the university and going on digs. Each book's mystery deals with one of the corpses in a unique situtation where Ruth helps the police solve a modern day mystery. This book's plot evolves around the possible finding of King Arthur's tomb and skeleton. Ruth is called in to authenticate the bones and ends up in a web of cultish mayhem. "

    " Like to read about these characters but didn't feel like this story was as quick to crab the reader as the previous books I had read by this author. Still, and enjoyable read, but was about half way through before I couldn't put it down. "

    " I enjoy all the characters in Elly Griffiths "Ruth Galloway" series, and it was fun to follow them on this adventure in a new locale. I found myself especially liking Cathbad, Ruth and Nelson's druid friend, this time around. "
