Synopsis

SHE PLANNED HER OWN FUNERAL. BUT DID SHE ARRANGE HER OWN MURDER?



A woman is strangled six hours after organising her own funeral.



Did she know she was going to die? Did she recognise her killer?



Daniel Hawthorne, a recalcitrant detective with secrets of his own, is on the case, together with his reluctant side-kick - a man completely unaccustomed to the world of crime.



But even Hawthorne isn't prepared for the twists and turns in store - as unexpected as they are bloody...
