My book review of 'The Man in Black' by Elly Griffiths

The Man in Black
by Elly Griffiths

This is a fabulous collections of stories featuring all our favourite Elly Griffiths' characters - Ruth Galloway, Max Mephisto, Justice Jones, Harbinder Kaur, and more!

There are stories about some of the lesser known characters in her novels, there's even a story told from Ruth's cat's perspective (wasn't so sure about that one!). There are ghost stories, a few set at Christmas, and we go back and forth in time with early Ruth and adult Justice Jones (the girl investigator who features in Elly's children's books). Some are very short, others quite long.

It's a great read and I think a good book to have on hand for a quick fix of Elly's wonderfully comforting, engrossing, writing.
