Overview

Bright and beautiful Jenny Cain, director of the Port Frederick Civic Foundation, was dying of curiosity. A hapless visitor had slipped in the mud at the town’s historic cemetery—and fallen right into an empty grave!

When Jenny discovered that all the graves were vacant, it was the beginning of murder. Someone had killed an employee of the Harbor Lights Funeral Home, and played a macabre practical joke with the body. Suddenly, everyone in town is a suspect, from the victim’s grieving widower to the spike-haired gravedigger to the unctuous director of the Harbor Lights. Now Jenny has to dig up some answers, and fast—before the killer leaves her silent as a tomb!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Like Pickard's Generous Death and Say No to Murder, the third story featuring Jenny Cain is fast-moving, sparked by humor and an unusual plot. Jenny, still serving as the head of the Port Frederick Civic Foundation, relates events that stun the population in her New England town when a mud slide reveals the disappearance of 133 bodies, supposedly interred during the 19th century in the old cemetery. At the same time, the corpse of Sylvia Davis is found in the casket with John Rudolph just before he's due to be buried in the new cemetery. The next day, Rudolph's widow is murdered, and Jenny sets out to gather evidence on possible killers. Her prime suspect is a young gravedigger and drug addict who dominates the center stage in macabre scenes before Jenny solves the puzzle of the town's vanished ancestors and identifies the present-day evildoer. Paperback rights to Pocket Books. (October 1)

This novel is a nice combination between hard core female protagonist mystery and formula plot mystery. Well written with interesting plot twiests. It is perfect for vacation. Not challenging but not boring either.

I enjoy Nancy Pickards stories, her ideas and writing style. BUT normally when I find an author that I enjoy, I will read all of their books and keep looking for new ones to come out. However, there are so many errors in these books that it's difficult to get through. Ex: in one it says "he looked like he hadn't slept all night, he had dark circles under his arms". If it were just once or twice it would be ok, but this is consistent throughout all three Jenny Cain books that I have read. They look like they were written by a child and nobody bothered to read and edit them before they went to press. Too bad that this is the case, I would have enjoyed them. I can't recommend the series, or the author.
