About this title

Synopsis:

Louise and Bill Eldridge and their teenage daughter Janie have only recently moved into their lovely suburban Washington home. With her children grown, her husband working, and no close friends in the neighborhood, Louise finds herself somewhat at loose ends until her gardening practices provide a tremendous distraction by way of a dead body.
A devoted organic gardener, Louise has been filling in the low spots in her yard with bags of grass clippings and leaves that she has collected from various homes in the area - much to the embarrassment of overly sensitive Janie. However, embarrassment is the least of their problems when body parts turn up in some of the bags.
One of their neighbors is a murderer, but which one? And whose body is it anyway? The corpse is lacking hands, feet, and head for identification purposes, and no one is missing in the immediate area; the police don't even know whom to look for. With curiosity and time to spare, Louise can't help poking around for clues - even Janie gets involved, with the help of a newfound friend.
But for a high-profile killer with everything left to lose, Louise's activities are no little threat, and may get her into even more trouble than her gardening did.
