When an old grave reveals two bodies, neither of which belong to the man named on the tombstone, Detective Inspector George Felse is once again called upon to investigate

While on a seaside vacation in Cornwall with his son, Dominic, Detective Inspector George Felse can’t help but investigate a dark mystery of smuggling, missing bodies, and murder.

Jan Treverra was a legendary Cornish poet and smuggler who died two centuries ago. But when local scholar Simon Towne arranges to open Treverra’s grave in search of his long-lost literary legacy, the tomb yields two dead bodies . . . and neither one is the body of Jan Treverra. In this derelict seashore graveyard, Felse uncovers a trail of violence in Maymouth’s history that casts shadows centuries long. . . .

A Nice Derangement of Epitaphs is the 4th book in the Felse Investigations, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
