Elly Griffiths' Ruth Galloway novels take for their inspiration Elly's husband, who gave up a city job to train as an archaeologist, and her aunt who lives on the Norfolk coast and who filled her niece's head with the myths and legends of that area. Elly has two children and lives near Brighton. Though not her first novel, The Crossing Places is her first crime novel.

The Lantern Men by Elly Griffiths
"Excellent as always, one of the best. But almost dropped a star for the few unnecessary political references. I hope Ruth goes back to Norfolk, she doesn't seem happy in Cambridge or happy with Frank. Like Nelson, I find him irritating and I don't kn" Read more of this review »

“When she bought the cats her mother asked her straight out if they were 'baby substitutes'. 'No,' Ruth had answered, straight-faced. 'They're kittens. If I had a baby it would be a cat substitute.”
Elly Griffiths, The Crossing Places

“You know how thick I am. I don't even eat yoghurt because it's got culture in it.”
Elly Griffiths, The Janus Stone

“Maybe humans need animals to help them understand the world. Certainly it’s hard to see what else cats do for humans, aside from looking cute and killing the odd mouse.”
Elly Griffiths, A Dying Fall
