Publisher's Summary

Haunted by their past, the Skelf women are hoping for a quieter life. But running both a funeral directors’ and a private investigation business means trouble is never far away, and when a car crashes into the open grave at a funeral that matriarch Dorothy is conducting, she can’t help looking into the dead driver’s shadowy life. 

While Dorothy uncovers a dark truth at the heart of Edinburgh society, her daughter, Jenny, and granddaughter Hannah have their own struggles. Jenny’s ex-husband, Craig, is making plans that could shatter the Skelf women’s lives, and the increasingly obsessive Hannah has formed a friendship with an elderly professor that is fast turning deadly.

A MASTERFUL NARRATION by SARAH BARRON

I really enjoyed this complex look at the Skelf family, living in Edinburgh, through the eyes of the author Doug Johnstone. He is a wonderful writer, and has obviously either lived in or researched the City very well. I loved the idea of several wee stories in one book about the Skelf family. What made this more special, and brought this to life for me was the fabulous narrator, Sarah Barron. The number of characters, male and female, each with their own "voice" was masterful. I was sorry for this book to end. Five Stars all the way.

Another great story about the Skelf woman.

The narrator does a great job of bringing these believable characters to life in a city full of history of life. Each character brings different things to the story with an underlying theme of terror and risk. I love the background of the city of Edinburgh and surrounding areas as I know them so well. it makes the whole story come to life. Well done again Doug and keep up the good work.
