Aurora Teagarden's life was pretty much in order, though
she wouldn't have objected to a nice relationship. All
things considered, however, there wasn't anything to
complain about. Then Jane Engle died. Aurora and Jane had
been friends - not particularly close friends, but they'd
both been members of the Real Murder Society and on
occasion had shared tea, as well as an interest in crime.
So Aurora was surprised to discover that she was named in
Jane's will as the heir to her home and some money . . .
about a half million dollars, in fact. A nice house, a lot
of money . . . things were looking up nicely.
house held a secret - a fact that was frighteningly
obvious the first time Aurora went there and realized that
someone had broken in, had been searching for something.
It didn't take long to discover the secret: Jane had
hidden a skull, and Aurora had just found it. Aurora
Teagarden was no stranger to a good mystery, but she
wasn't quite certain what to do with this one. Before she
has a chance to consider her next move, someone decides
that she already knows too much. Now she has a few more
questions to answer: Whodunit? Who was it done to? And who
seemed to keep on wanting to do it?
