Elly Griffiths' The Janus Stone
The second Ruth Galloway mystery was even more convoluted than the first, with all sorts of dead children and animals, Roman history, red herrings, and more. I really didn't like the interstitial sections this time, from the POV of a total crazy, but at least the end worked better than the last one. The thing is, I like all the characters, even though the mysteries themselves have been sub-par, so I probably will read at least one more of these. B.
