From the London pop scene, to the opera stages of Europe; from a tiny Greek island, to a stifling manor house full of secrets and deceptions; from the sun-drenched Queensland coast, to the silent outback; Angela and Ellie are two women both looking for something. One in search of her identity and her memory; the other in search of the love that she had and lost; theirs is a duet whose last note will not be sung until the heart-stopping climax, when a shadow from the past returns to claim them both.

A college class gets more than it bargained for when Harper gives a demonstration of her uncanny talent. Instead of just finding one body in an old grave, she finds two: the original occupant and a recently deceased girl whom Harper had tried, and failed, to find two years previously. To dispel suspicions about her innocence, Harper sets out to find the killer - only to find yet another body in the same grave.

this book is well worth a listen, i enjoyed. But it is unclear in which order to read these books and its much better to read them in order. You should read Grave Surpise, follwed by An Ice Cold Gragve and then Grave Secret. reading them this way all falls into place. i first started reading the last one first, then realised! i can recommend all three of these books.

Enjoyed this book, after listening to the first one i had to get this one. The only complaint i have really is that sometimes the females are made to sound a bit whiney. will get book 3 when it comes out on audible, which i hope won't be too long.
