"Finely observed beautifully written" Daily Mail on The Secrets of Life and Death "The victim had been buried in a carved hollow in the grass and shrouded in fallen leaves..."Archaeologist Sage Westfield has her first forensics case: investigating the murder of a teenage girl.

Hidden by holly leaves, the girl's body has been discovered on the grounds of a stately home, where another teenage girl went missing twenty years ago - but her body was never found.

The police suspect the reclusive owner, Alistair Chorleigh, who was questioned but never charged.

But when Sage investigates a nearby burial mound - and uncovers rumours of an ancient curse - she discovers the story of another mysterious disappearance over a hundred years ago.

Sage will need both her modern forensics skills and her archaeological knowledge to unearth the devastating truth.
