Elly is best known as the author of the Dr Ruth Galloway mystery series. Dr Ruth Galloway is a detective who specializes in forensic archaeology and throughout the series will uncover mysteries with the aid of her colleague DCI Nelson.

In 2016, Elly told Suffolk Libraries that Dr Ruth was not the ‘traditional’ female detective:

“A lot of female protagonists in crime novels tend to be rather glamourous... I wanted to create someone who I could relate to, someone who loves their work but often feels insecure, someone who would rather eat a gourmet meal than cook one.”

Elly Griffiths is also the author of the Stephens and Mephisto series, which is set in Brighton and has had three books to-date. She has also written four books under her real name, Domenica de Rosa. In 2016, she was awarded the Crime Writers’ Association ‘Dagger in the Library’ award for her body of work.

The Night Hawks is set to be released on the 4th February 2021, and will be the thirteenth novel in the Ruth Galloway series. It is available to reserve on our catalogue.

This event is part of our Suffolk Libraries Day book festival.
