It’s no secret that we love our crime fiction here in St Andrews, and what better way to spend a chilly February night than with the fabulous Elly Griffiths? We’re delighted that Elly will be joining us to talk about The Chalk Pit, the latest instalment in her celebrated Dr Ruth Galloway series.
Dr Galloway’s investigations take her into ever-increasingly sinister grounds as she attempts to uncover the mystery behind a collection of bones recently deposited beneath the streets of Norwich. What starts as an archaeological excavation soon turns into one of the most dangerous and unsettling cases Dr Galloway has ever faced.
Elly is a superb speaker; interesting, funny and hilariously candid on everything from archaeology to her characters and her time in publishing and we’re thrilled to be able to welcome her to the bookshop. This promises be a wonderful evening with a truly spectacular crime writer.
‘I refuse to apologise for being in love with Dr Ruth Galloway and DCI Harry Nelson . . one of my favourite current crime series . . . a pleasure from start to finish.’ – Val McDermid
