A Girl Called Justice by Elly Griffiths

The Blurb On The Back:

As soon as she saw the school, Justice Jones knew that it had potential for murder.

She kept this to herself, of course. The taxi driver could easily be a spy.

Meet Justice Jones: super-smart by day, super-sleuth by night, she’s always on the lookout for mystery.

And on her first day at boarding school, it’s clear there is plenty of investigating to do: Why do blondes rule the corridors? Who made the uniform such a charming shade of brown? And do teachers normally hide dangerous secrets about the murder of a chamber maid?

When a deadly snow storm cuts everyone off from the outside world, the body count starts to rise. Can Justice find the killer – before it’s too late?

The Chalk Pit by Elly Griffiths

The Blurb On The Back:

Boiled human bones have been found in a tunnel under Norwich.  A medieval curiosity?  Perhaps, but when Dr Ruth Galloway discovers they were recently buried, DCI Nelson has a murder enquiry on his hands.

Meanwhile, DS Judy Johnson is investigating the disappearance of a local rough sleeper.  The only trace of her is a rumour that she’s gone ‘underground’.  Both Ruth and the police have heard whispers that the vast network of old chalk-mining tunnels under Norwich is home to a community of rough sleepers.  Can the tales of cannibalism in this subterranean society possibly be true?

Then another woman goes missing and the police came under attack.  Ruth and Nelson must unravel the dark secrets of the Underground and discover just what gruesome secrets lurk at its heart – before it claims another victim.
