Had sweet, fragile, silver-haired Jane Engle, school librarian and churchgoer, murdered someone and put the victim's skull in her window seat? Did Aurora Teagarden, fellow librarian and astonished beneficiary of Jane's estate--including house, cat, and half a million dollars--want to expose her friend as a murderess?
An intruder's careful search alerts Aurora to the unsettling fact that somebody else knows about the skull. Where was the rest of the body? No stranger to a good mystery, Aurora is still not quite sure how to proceed. Especially when she becomes convinced her friend is innocent...and the real killer is nearby, watching and waiting.
