Elly Griffiths The Woman in Blue has Ruth Galloway helping investigate the murder of a young woman who died dressed eerily like the Virgin Mary and found in one of the holiest places in England. Ruth helps Detective Nelson determine the motive behind the murder. With so many religious types running around Walshingham during the Lent and Easter season, there are so many church conspiracies to consider. Is it the writer of the letters bashing women’s new role as priests? Or the secret group obsessed with the Virgin Mother as the ultimate mother figure? Or are these 2 groups linked together in ideology and guilt?
An interesting read. There was a lot of colorful characters and plots that should have help my interest, but I was too absent minded to read quickly.
