Dr Ruth Galloway  Further Cases

Enjoy three great mysteries from bestselling author Elly Griffiths' super-popular Dr Ruth Galloway series. Forensic archaeologist Ruth with DCI Harry Nelson mix brilliant detection with navigating their ever more complicated relationship. 'Ruth Galloway is one of the most engaging characters in modern crime fiction' KATE MOSSE A ROOM FULL OF BONES It's Halloween night, and the dead are closer than ever for Ruth. She's attending a bizarre event at the local history museum - the opening of a coffin containing the bones of a medieval bishop. But lying beside the coffin is the body of the museum's curator. Soon the museum's wealthy owner lies dead too. These deaths could be from natural causes but Nelson isn't convinced. It is only a matter of time before Ruth and Nelson cross paths once more. A DYING FALL Dr Ruth Galloway spends a lot of time looking at death. But now death has found her, with the news that an old friend has died in a house fire. But her grief soon turns to suspicion of arson when she receives a desperate letter from her dead friend, sent the day before he died. He'd made a ground-breaking discovery that he was sure would change archaeology forever - and was petrified of the consequences. Ruth feels compelled to travel north to investigate, alongside Nelson who is also drawn into the case. THE OUTCAST DEAD Ruth has excavated a body from the grounds of Norwich Castle, which was once a prison. The body may be that of Victorian murderess Jemima Green. Called Mother Hook for her claw-like hand, Jemima was hanged for the murder of five children. But Nelson has no time for long-ago killers. Investigating the case of three infants found dead, one after the other, in their King's Lynn home, he's convinced that their mother is responsible. Then a child goes missing. Could the abduction be linked to the long-dead Mother Hook? Ruth is pulled into the case, and back towards Nelson.

Less than two years later, she was back in East St. Louis, single, living on her own, and pregnant with her eldest child.75 Life, in the form of teenage pregnancy, interfered with Ruth's ambitious plans to graduate from college.

The Contested Murder of Latasha Harlins

Helicopters patrolled low over the city, filming blocks of burning cars and buildings, mobs breaking into storefronts, and the vicious beating of truck driver Reginald Denny. For a week in April 1992, Los Angeles transformed into a cityscape of rage, purportedly due to the exoneration of four policemen who had beaten Rodney King. It should be no surprise that such intense anger erupted from something deeper than a single incident. In The Contested Murder of Latasha Harlins, Brenda Stevenson tells the dramatic story of an earlier trial, a turning point on the road to the 1992 riot. On March 16, 1991, fifteen-year-old Latasha Harlins, an African American who lived locally, entered the Empire Liquor Market at 9172 South Figueroa Street in South Central Los Angeles. Behind the counter was a Korean woman named Soon Ja Du. Latasha walked to the refrigerator cases in the back, took a bottle of orange juice, put it in her backpack, and approached the cash register with two dollar bills in her hand-the price of the juice. Moments later she was face-down on the floor with a bullet hole in the back of her head, shot dead by Du. Joyce Karlin, a Jewish Superior Court judge appointed by Republican Governor Pete Wilson, presided over the resulting manslaughter trial. A jury convicted Du, but Karlin sentenced her only to probation, community service, and a $500 fine. The author meticulously reconstructs these events and their aftermath, showing how they set the stage for the explosion in 1992. An accomplished historian at UCLA, Stevenson explores the lives of each of these three women-Harlins, Du, and Karlin-and their very different worlds in rich detail. Through the three women, she not only reveals the human reality and social repercussions of this triangular collision, she also provides a deep history of immigration, ethnicity, and gender in modern America. Massively researched, deftly written, The Contested Murder of Latasha Harlins will reshape our understanding of race, ethnicity, gender, and-above all-justice in modern America.

The Multiple Murders of Mary Kelley Campbell

This book is a memoir of Janel Campbell who lost her mother when she was eleven years old. Woven through her own stories, Janel gives the backdrop of her mother's life in the high mountain desert plains of southeast Idaho, her marriage to Curtis Campbell, and the events that take her mother from the dry farm in Juniper, Idaho to Los Angeles, back to north Utah, to Seattle, back to Utah, then to New Jersey, and back to Kent, Washington, a path that eventually leads to her mother's brutal murder on March 8, 1961 at the young age of 39. Mary Kelley Campbell was a witty, high-spirited Irish girl who lost her own father at the age of six, raised by her widowed mother, older sisters, and brother. Mary was a devout Mormon, a compassionate Christian, and the mother of six children. The confessed murderer was a member of Mary's church, a Lennie-type Of Mice and Men; a large, strong, lumbering, simple-minded man oblivious of his actions and desperate to please. The helpless 22-year-old confesses to have been hypnotized by a young attractive member of their church, who he claims was obsessed with the idea of having Mary killed and taking her place as the wife of an eminent Boeing engineer. The crime was labeled by King County prosecutors as "...one of the weirdest murders in the annals of the Pacific Northwest." With Mary's legacy banished for nearly sixty years by the pain and circumstance of her death, Janel has quelled the fears she knew she had to face in order to bring her mother's tales of betrayal, heartache, love, and forgiveness to Mary's progeny, and to the world.

More Molecules of Murder

How can a plant as beautiful as the foxglove be so deadly and yet for more than a century be used to treat heart disease? The same is true of other naturally occurring molecules as will be revealed in this current book by award-winning author and chemist, John Emsley. More Molecules of Murder follows on from his highly-acclaimed earlier book Molecules of Murder, and again it deals with 14 potential poisons; seven of which are man-made and seven of which are natural. It investigates the crimes committed with them, not from the point of view of the murderers, their victims, or the detectives, but from the poison used. In so doing it throws new light on how these crimes were carried out and ultimately how the perpetrators were uncovered and brought to justice. Each chapter starts by looking at the target molecule itself, its discovery, its chemistry, its often-surprising use in medicine, its effects on the human body, and its toxicology. The rest of the chapter is devoted to murders and attempted murders in which it has been used. But, be reassured that murder by poison is not the threat it once was, thanks to laws which restrict access to such materials and to the skills of analytical chemists in detecting their presence in incredibly tiny amounts.

But as spring turns into summer it becomes clear that someone is desperate to put her off the scent by frightening her to death...
