The fifth Ellie Quicke mystery
The body of a young girl is found in next door's neglected garden, to the horror of the occupiers, who are friends of Ellie's. How long has the body been there, and is it someone who once lived there? Ellie seems to be the only person who has known all the families who have lived in the house - a house that seems to attract misery.
Tracking down her memories of loud party-givers and possible con men amongst others, Ellie is forced to confront the tragedies of her own life during that time, and comes to the conclusion that she was a bad neighbour. Meanwhile the girl's body gives up her secrets while her killers haunt the vicinity, determined to find someone else upon whom to pin the murder . . .
