  • The death of the undertaker from the village of Fletcher's Cross has far more ramifications than the police at first believe to be the case when there is a possibility of some kind of involvement by a local spiritualist church.

    Patrick Pennyman is the undertaker in the village of Fletcher's Cross and his murders brings Barnaby and Scott there to investigate. When they dig about a bit though they find that Pennyman's murder isn't the only burning issue in the village because it seems that opinion is strongly divided about the activities of a local spiritualist church which some prominent members of the community wish to have right out of their hair.

    A second murder, that of a friend of Joyce's means that Barnaby and Scott have the task of trying to ascertain whether or not the deaths are in any way connected, not only to each other but also to the church itself.

    This one might leave you guessing, unless you watch very carefully as the killer is fairly obvious - unless you miss the hints!
