Publisher's Summary

In the ninth Ruth Galloway mystery, Ruth and Nelson investigate a string of murders and disappearances deep within the abandoned tunnels hidden far beneath the streets of Norwich.
Norwich is riddled with old chalk-mining tunnels, but no one's sure exactly how many. When Ruth is called in to investigate a set of human remains found in one of them, she notices the bones are almost translucent - a sign they were boiled soon after death. Once more she finds herself at the helm of a murder investigation.
Meanwhile, DCI Nelson is hunting for a missing homeless woman, Barbara, who he hears has gone "underground". Could she have disappeared into the labyrinth? And if so, is she connected to the body Ruth found?
As Ruth, Nelson, and the rest of their team investigate the tunnels, they hear rumors of secret societies, cannibalism, and ritual killings. When a dead body is found with a map that appears to be of The Underground, they realize their quest to find the killer has only just begun - and that there may be more bodies underfoot.

Soap opera, too little detection

A glut of characters all of whom seem to have high drama in their personal lives. Occasionally a missing person mystery will come up but nobody seems to be anxious to do any detection just discuss it! Tried to hold on but could not keep track of the players!

Suspend disbelief

Not her best in my opinion. The characters seem to be rushed around with little feel for motivation, especially the murderer. Not much archeological or anthropological material.
