    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.

These two deaths could be from natural causes - but Nelson isn't convinced.

    Forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway has excavated a body from the grounds of Norwich Castle, a forbidding edifice that was once a prison. She believes the body may be that of infamous Victorian murderess Jemima Green. Called Mother Hook for her claw-like hand, Jemima was hanged in 1867 for the murder of five children in her care. DCI Harry Nelson has no time for long-dead killers. Immersed in the case of three infants found dead, one after the other, in their King’s Lynn home, he’s convinced that a family member is responsible, though others on his team think differently.

    Das ist kein Haus mehr, das ist ein Grab. In einer Baugrube in Norfolk liegen die Knochen eines Kindes, nur der Schädel fehlt. Für die forensische Archäologin Dr. Ruth Galloway sieht alles nach einer rituellen Opfergabe aus römischer Zeit aus. Damals begrub man Menschenopfer unter Türschwellen, als Geschenk an den Gott Janus. Die Analyse jedoch ergibt: Die Knochen stammen aus der Gegenwart. Ein harter Fall für die hochschwangere Ruth.

    Christmas 1953. Max Mephisto and his daughter, Ruby, are headlining Brighton Hippodrome, an achievement only slightly marred by the less-than-savoury support act: a tableau show of naked 'living statues'. This might appear to have nothing in common with DI Edgar Stephens' investigation into the death of a quiet flower seller, but if there's one thing the old comrades have learned it's that in Brighton, the line between art and life - and death - is all too easily blurred....
