I read the first in the Ruth Galloway series and enjoyed it, so I was glad to follow up with The Janus Stone. It delivered the same intriguing murder mystery with interesting characters as the first. Ruth is such a focused and independent professional woman that it's a little difficult to buy into a romantic relationship with DCI Nelson, but while their attraction may seem a little thin, I'm interested to see how it plays out in the next volume of the series when a baby will definitely complicate the personal side of things. It was endearing to me that Ruth genuinely liked Nelson's wife and respected his family commitments. On the professional side, I enjoyed the background info on ancient gods and rituals and some of the ins-and-outs of archeological digs. The crime plot was certainly complicated enough to hold my interest (I'm not good at figuring out "who done it" before the end), but it was a little short on suspects this time. Maybe it was a bit too similar to the first book in the series, and I hope the author can branch out a bit in subsequent editions. Overall, however, it was an enjoyable read.… (més)

I read this in December 2023 and inadvertently again in June 2024!

I was half way through before I realised it was a repeat, but I was enjoying the way it simply flowed easily that I continued till the end.

This is tenth in the series, and I would not start here. Each in the series is half the crime investigation and half the ever-evolving personal lives of the core group of characters. As to the latter, there are some dramatic developments but oddly they don't fall into the 'I never thought that was possible". And it is a little disappointing that there is one major cliff hanger left dangling. It is not unexpected, but it seems (the use of a cliff hanger as opposed to how the cliff hanger turns out) a little cheap (if that is the right word).

I suspect that both anyone still reading this series, and those who have already given up, will not be swayed by anything I say, so I will stop here.

I enjoy the Harbinder Kaur series, although this one didn't have much of Harbinder in it.

Murder leaps off the page when crime novelists begin to turn up dead. The death of a 90 year old woman with a heart condition should not appear suspicious. Detective Sergeant Harbinder Kaur certainly sees nothing out of the ordinary when Peggy’s caregiver, Natalka, begins to recount Peggy Smith’s passing.
But Natalka had a reason to be at the police station: while clearing out Peggy’s flat, she noticed an unusual number of crime novels, all dedicated to Peggy. And each psychological thriller included a mysterious postscript: PS for PS. When a gunman breaks into the flat to steal a book and its author is found dead shortly after-Detective Kaur begins to think that perhaps 5ere is no such thing as an u suspicious death after all.… (més)
