    It is Halloween night, and the local museum in King's Lynn is preparing for an unusual event - the opening of a coffin containing the bones of a medieval bishop. But when Ruth Galloway arrives to supervise, she finds the museum's curator lying dead beside the coffin. It is only a matter of time before she and DI Nelson cross paths once more, as he is called in to investigate. Soon the museum's wealthy owner lies dead in his stables, too. These two deaths could be from natural causes - but Nelson isn't convinced.

    Would you try another book from Elly Griffiths and/or Jane McDowell?

    No. I have not read Ms Griffiths previous books, nor could I finish this one. It is rare that I will put a book down before completion, but there was nothing - not the characters, nor story, nor narration, that held my interest. I selected this book because the prior reviews were positive and the Audible Summary was intriguing and similar to other favorite series of the mystery genre by Louise Penny and Jacqueline Winspear. Those series feature principled and cerebral protagonists tackling misdeeds and wicked acts in rural and picturesque settings populated with sympathetic and quirky characters. This novel disappointed on all counts.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I have already started Secret Daughter by Silpi Samaya Gowda. This is a totally different, but favorite genre - the complex, sweeping historical fiction set in distant and mysterious locales. I am hoping it lives up to other favorites including Kite Runner, Cutting for Stone and Shantaram.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jane McDowell’s performances?

    No, I do have and follow favorite narrators: Orlaugh Cassidy, Anna Fields, Ralph Kosham, Joe Montegna, Scott Brick, Dick Hill and others.


    What character would you cut from A Room Full of Bones?

    Sadly, I connected with none of the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    No.
