Publisher's Summary

From the Sunday Times best-selling author, the 10th Dr Ruth Galloway mystery - celebrating 10 years of Ruth.

Dr Ruth Galloway is flattered when she receives a letter from Italian archaeologist Dr Angelo Morelli, asking for her help. He's discovered a group of bones in a tiny hilltop village near Rome but doesn't know what to make of them. It's years since Ruth has had a holiday, and even a working holiday to Italy is very welcome!

So Ruth travels to Castello degli Angeli, accompanied by her daughter Kate and friend Shona. In the town she finds a baffling Roman mystery and a dark secret involving the war years and the Resistance. To her amazement she also soon finds Harry Nelson, with Cathbad in tow. But there is no time to overcome their mutual shock - the ancient bones spark a modern murder, and Ruth must discover what secrets there are in Castello degli Angeli that someone would kill to protect.

    "A great listen, excellent work!"

    The trouble with each new Ruth Galloway title by Elly Griffiths that I purchase on pre-order is that as soon as it's in my account I must listen to it in large chunks, and then I am left waiting for the next title!

    Book 10 has a different landscape, which was a really interesting insight, the subject matter is interesting, and I can always relate Ruth's concerns and worries. Another excellent listen, when is book 11 being released?

    "Sadly boring"

    I have enjoyed this series so far. What a disappointment to find that I was struggling to complete this book, and found myself bored. The story was slow moving, it just droned on with unrealistic story lines and the new characters not at all likeable. The narrator did her best with a poor story line. The last few chapters did liven up a little but I found myself disbelieving the events that took place.

    "Emotional spin cycle"
    Would you listen to The Dark Angel again? Why?

    Elly Griffiths' Dr Ruth Galloway series is a favourite of mine and I have lost count of the number of times I have listened to the entire series. This latest title has left me emotionally wrung out - it is as good as the rest and in addition to the intertwined mysteries, cleverly revealed throughout the book, I love the characters and their personal stories.


    Which character – as performed by Jane McDowell – was your favourite?

    I really enjoyed the narration - the characters are well represented. If I had to pick a favourite character as narrated by Jane McDowell, it might be DCI Harry Nelson at his rudest, but I am more impressed with the overall performance.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to this book in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    How long do I have to wait for the next one?

    "Another great book!"

    Really enjoyed this outing and so happy to be back with characters who have become friends. Hope the wait for the next episode won't be too long.

    "Slow Moving and a little boring if I’m honest. "

    Normally love the series. I found this one hard work. Too many new characters, which I got confused with and I’m finding the love triangle too long and drawn out. Too many unanswered questions.

    "Best yet"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Dark Angel to be better than the print version?

    The ability to share the experience with my wife lends an added dimension, through speculation and discussion.


    What other book might you compare The Dark Angel to, and why?

    As part of a series, it fits in well with the other books, but also stands alone as a gripping mystery.


    Have you listened to any of Jane McDowell’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    As good as ever.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Very bitter-sweet, but in a believable way.


    Any additional comments?

    Three inter-connected mysteries combine, mirroring each other. Moving from one to another adds to the tension. The question of the baby's parentage keeps cropping up - very tens!
