    Details Reviews It's been only a few months since archaeologist Ruth Galloway found herself entangled in a missing persons case, barely escaping with her life. But as spring turns into summer it becomes clear that someone is trying very hard to put her off the trail by frightening her, and her unborn child, half to death. Then a new issue to comes to the forefront. And yet, I love love loved this book as much as I did the first one.

    Irish archaeologist Eileen Murphy states in Warrior Women that the Lustymore Idol is thought by some Irish scholars to be the precursor to Sheela na gigs : her arms lie across the torso and point toward the inverted V that represents the top of the vulva page But as spring turns into summer it becomes clear that someone is trying very hard to put her off the trail by frightening her, and her unborn child, half to death. On the sides of the stone where the two carved figures are joined, is an interlace design that may represent hair. So, Ruth Galloway is called on again.

    Elly Griffiths has caught me hook, line, and sinker. Ruth is around 40, chubby, and very good at what she does. Great summer reading. She is one of a triad of Celtic war goddesses that included her sisters, Macha and Morrigan.

Elly Griffiths the Janus Stone - creepy but good Book 2 in the Ruth Galloway series is a bit more macabre - but still a good story. I like Jane McDowell's narration too - doesn't make her voice really low to voice the male characters which i can find disconcerting.
