Always nice to revisit the world of Elly Griffiths, with another story set in Kings Lynn, Norfolk with Ruth Galloway and all the other familiar characters I've come to know over the course of this series. This episode involves street people, bones found in an underground cavern, unexplained killings, and mysterious disappearances. Once again there is the mix of police procedural, archaeology and the many personalities surrounding Ruth in the college town where old and ancient buildings once again serve up old bones.

In this episode there is another very modern issue, that of the people sleeping rough, the street people or homeless who are sometimes victims of crime for no reason. Here they become the center of the question. Are they victims, perpetrators, what? What is happening in the old chalk pits?

Once again Elly Griffiths delivers a great story on the way to answering the many questions -- and also moving Ruth, Nelson, and all of her regular characters along in their lives.
