Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0330490818, Paperback)Bracketts, an Elizabethan house near the town of Fethering, is about to be turned into a museum. Once the home of celebrated poet Esmund Chadleigh, it has now been decided that it should become a shrine to his life and poetry. But the transition from house to museum is running far from smoothly. For a sudden discovery is made: Buried in the kitchen garden is a human skeleton. And before too long, there is a second body, not yet cold. Murder is no longer just a dreadful possibility, but a certainty. It is a case that will test the sleuthing powers of Board member Carole Seddon and her friend Jude as never before ...Praise for Simon Brett and the "Fethering Mysteries": 'A good, juicy, very English murder mystery.' - "Daily Mail". 'A crime novel in the traditional style, with delightful little touches of humour and vignettes of a small town and its bitchy inhabitants.' - "Sunday Telegraph".

The life of writer Esmond Chadleigh is celebrated in Bracketts House. However, despite efforts of the trustees, most of Chadleigh's work remains out of print, leaving the author out-of-sight and Bracketts out-of-funds. An American literature professor with a big bankroll can keep Bracketts running, in exchange for assistance on her Chadleigh biography. But the trustees are afraid the biographer only wants to root out the skeletons in Chadleigh's closet-- especially after uncovering one in his garden. Now Carole and Jude must risk tarnishing the sterling reputation of a beloved author to learn whether his sword was mightier than his pen.
