Elly Griffiths (real name Domenica de Rosa) was born in 1963 in London, read English at King’s College London and, after graduating, worked in a library, for a magazine and then as a publicity assistant at HarperCollins. In 1998 she wrote her first published novel, The Italian Quarter and published three more novels about Italy, families and identity. It was whilst on a walk in Norfolk across Titchwell Marsh that a chance comment by her husband gave her the idea for the first novel in the Dr Ruth Galloway series. She is also the author of the successful Brighton mysteries.
I love looking back over the year and reflecting on some of my favourite reads. These might be a rediscovery of a book I haven't read in a while, a new read to me that will over time become a favourite or a much loved favourite.

I am sat writing this review on the August Bank Holiday weekend and in typical British weather fashion, Saturday has been a washout. I mean seriously?
