Summary

The Skelf women live in the face of death every day, running a funeral directors and private investigators firm in Edinburgh, and their own grief intertwines with that of their clients as they reel from shocking past events.

A fist-fight by an open grave leads Dorothy to investigate the possibility of a faked death, while a young woman's obsession with Hannah threatens her relationship with Indy and puts them both in mortal danger. An elderly man claims he's being abused by the ghost of his late wife, while ghosts of another kind come back to haunt Jenny from the grave...pushing her to breaking point.

As the Skelfs struggle with increasingly unnerving cases and chilling danger lurks close to home, it becomes clear that grief, in all its forms, can be deadly....

A good book

Another good story following on from the previous history of the Skelfs. Always good to read the goings on in the background of Edinburgh.
