Description

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.

        March 6, 2017
        The discovery of a cannibalized skeleton in a Norfolk underground tunnel catapults forensic archeologist Ruth Galloway into her engrossing ninth case (after 2016’s The Woman in Blue). When a homeless man reports a missing woman and then is stabbed to death, Det. Chief Insp. Harry Nelson and his team join the investigation, which takes on added urgency when Det. Sgt. David Clough’s significant other, who’s the mother of his baby, disappears. Ruth’s Druid friend, Cathbad, plays a prominent role, and series fans will find humor in Nelson’s struggles with an ambitious female commanding officer. On the personal side, Ruth struggles with her love for the married Nelson, who’s her daughter’s father and whose wife, Michelle, makes a surprise revelation with far-reaching implications for the uneasy triangle. Despite grisly deaths, Griffiths maintains a gentle tone, and her portrayal of issues surrounding homelessness is compassionate and nuanced. A hopeful ending might seem facile to some readers and comforting to others. Agent: Rebecca Carter, Janklow & Nesbit.

      • content: Narrator Jane McDowell portrays the relationships that continue to evolve among the recurring characters of this mystery series, which takes place in Norwich, England. The main character, Ruth Galloway, is a crime-solving archaeologist, professor, and single mother. McDowell sets a good pace as she finds wonderful voices for the characters, including Jo, the new female chief superintendent who continually rattles DCI Nelson. Character development adds as much to the circuitous story as the police investigate the strange murders of two harmless rough sleepers, the disappearance of three women, and the discovery of old bones in an abandoned tunnel under the streets. McDowell's well-modulated voice adds drama to the fascinating historical details. S.C.A. � AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine
