Ruth, supposedly a forensic anthropologist, should be an interesting character study if Griffiths portrayal of her reflected any of the intelligence and independence a reader might expect. Other characters in the story speak of her with admiration but I find her a most uninformed scholar. She asks others to answer questions about British political or church history that I could have answered in high school. The story wanders endlessly around the thoughts of a group of personalities and taxes a reader's patience in trying to link them together into a coherent story line. The author constantly refers to earlier books in order to support the story line in this one. I have no motivation to go back and read the earlier novels. The author would be better served to do a little more research and develop a central character with some depth.
