Overview
"Complex and character-driven...An excellent mystery whose very last sentence will leave you yearning for the next installment."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Ruth Galloway is a captivating amateur sleuth--an inspired creation." --Louise Penny

Norwich is riddled with old chalk-mining tunnels, but no one's sure how many. When Ruth Galloway 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 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 and Nelson 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 depict the Underground, they realize their quest to find the killer has only just begun--and that there may be more bodies underfoot.
