Sensible Carole Seddon doesn't have the tolerance to deal with her new bohemian neighbor, Jude. But Jude doesn't seem so bad when Carole discovers another addition to the neighborhood-a dead body on the beach bearing two wounds on its neck.

Very little disturbs the ordered calm of the Fethering retirement settlement. The last thing Carole expects to encounter is a new neighbour with a colourful past - and a body on the beach, which disappears before the police arrive.
