Another excellent outing with Ruth and her quirky supporting cast. I love the way Elly Griffiths works religion and mysticism into her stories without disrespecting any point of view. This particular mystery is set in the season of Lent and the ideas of Lent and Easter are touched on by each character in some way. I found the increased focus on Michelle and Harry to be a good game changer, keeping the series fresh and interesting.

Audience: Intended for adults, but no reason why teens could not enjoy it too.
