Six Feet Under

Curiosity killed the cat. Did it also kill Carrie?

At first Inspector Thanet doesn’t know what to make of the murder of the singularly unprepossessing middle-aged spinster in a peaceful Kentish garden. He considers her ‘a most unlikely corpse’. But he soon discovers that she not only had a few startling secrets of her own but had been in an ideal position to ferret out those of other people....

An alcoholic pianist, a wardrobe of disguises, a forbidden love affair - strong and unexpected passions smoulder beneath the surface tranquillity of life in Nettleton. Thanet warms to the possibility of blackmail but surprises himself when he stumbles upon an even more bizarre and tragic explanation...
