Nancy Atherton s Aunt Dimity novels have enchanted thousands of readers, and this new addition to the series is likely to broaden the spell. A series of death threats sends Lori Shepard to a remote island off the Scottish coast and to a fabulous castle restored by an eccentric friend of her husbands. But she finds herself drawn into an elaborate whodunit that may involve smugglingor worse. Why has a human skull washed up on the beach? Is a desolate island really the best place to hide from a murderer? As Lori draws once more on Aunt Dimitys supernatural aid, Atherton whips equal measures of whimsy and suspense into an irresistible confection.
