Elly Griffiths was born in London. She read English at King’s College, London and worked in publishing for many years. Her crime novels are based in Norfolk and feature Dr Ruth Galloway, forensic archaeologist. She lives near Brighton with her husband, an archaeologist and their two children.

Her series featuring archaeologist Ruth Galloway is going from strength to strength. Griffiths’s beautifully developed characters and relationships are as much of a draw as her plots.
