When an old colleague complains of disappearing neighbors, a retired professor of botany starts digging for clues in this delightful cozy mystery.
Andrew Basnett may be retired from academia, but that doesn’t seem to have stopped his former colleagues from dumping problems in his lap. This time around it’s peppery Constance Camm, whose neighbors keep disappearing. Miss Camm and her sister, Mollie, would probably shrug it off if not for a frightening letter that reads “I know where you buried the body.”
But . . . to which disappeared neighbor does the letter refer? And why was it sent to Mollie, who hasn’t buried anything? Spurred by a desire to help a friend, Professor Basnett starts poking around. But his efforts uncover more than one village skeleton, and they may call up more than anyone has bargained for.
