The Chalk Pit by Elly Griffiths. This is the ninth book about Ruth Galloway, a forensic anthropologist and DCI Nelson. A homeless man reports that a homeless woman has disappeared, only to be brutally murdered. Then another homeless man is killed as well, and then another woman disappears. This time from a wealthy neighborhood, but she has one thing in common with the homeless woman. And Ruth finds bones underneath an old cellar, bones which something nasty had happened to. And then there are disconcerting rumours about an underground society...

As I said I liked it, and I found the ideas of people living underground interesting. At first I thought the mention of an underground cinema underneath Paris was just made-up for the book, but apparently it is true. And I also like the gallery of characters; Nelson’s wife Michelle, the police officers Judy and Clough, Ruth’s druid friend Cathbad and her daughter Kate. Their relationships grow and evolve throughout the books, and it is a little like seeing old friends when a new book comes.
