About this title


While out walking around the town, sensible Carole Seddon comes across the bones of a human skeleton and joins forces with Jude, her bohemian neighbor, who believes that the remains may be those of a young woman who used to practice her alternative therapy, and soon the two women are faced with two mysteries when they discover that the young woman is still alive.
