Dead Lost by Helen H. Durrant. Published by Joffee

Durrant continues her “Dead” series with DI Calladine and DS Ruth Bayliss on the trail of a ruthless killer. A group of homeless people has set up an encampment in an old cotton mill, reminiscent of the Occupy movement of a few years ago. There are rumors that one of the men there has been killed, but police cannot find a body, only a bloody coat. Meanwhile the organizers of the encampment have been getting bones in the mail, animal bones it turns out, but still, very disturbing. Is there a connection to the murder? Ruth and Calladine will try to find out while struggling with their own lives. Calladine in particular is having a hard time getting sorted with his new boss, someone he does not like…or trust. Durrant’s strength are her characters, who continue to grow and develop with each book in the series
