While attending the Biddinghurst village fete, Superintendent Bone is alerted to the presence of a body in the boot of the town busybody's car. No sooner has he begun the investigation than a fatal stabbing takes place in the fete's haunted house. Bone must contend with a plethora of suspects with sundry motives: longtime residents party to old family feuds, a group of curiously reticent teenagers, and a pair of TV celebrity newcomers who turn out to be involved in some particularly unsavory clandestine activities. The case is further complicated by local ghost stories and by another suspicious death in London.

"A polished detective series... Bone, the attractive, unflappable British copper is witty and literate." says to the New York Times Book Review."
"Bones is not only as sensitive as Dallgleish but well deserving of a wider audience." states Kirkus Reviews. "Stacy's Superintendent Bone mysteries have won her comparrison to Ruth Rendell, P.D. James, and Agatha Christi. Once again Bone brings his alluring charm to slove a quintessential English Mystery,". Other titles in this series are: Goodbye, Nanny Gray, A Knife at the Opera, Body of Opinion,Bone Idle, Grave Responsibility, and The Late Lady."according to the editor.
