Synopsis

Libby, a former flame of Hitchcock Sewell, has returned to town with her two children, but minus one husband and one nanny. Libby's husband has been accounted for--she left him back in Annapolis. However, the nanny, Sophie, is truly missing. As soon as Hitch starts to nose around, Sophie turns up--literally--in the Severn River. She's quite dead, and just a little bit pregnant. The police suspect suicide, but Sophie's mom is adamant it's murder. Hitch's sense: He sides with the mother. Racing around town, Hitch finds more questions than answers. Murder in the Hearse Degree is another pitch-perfect mystery in a series that never disappoints, always surprises, and keeps the laughs--and corpses--rolling right along.

Hitchcock Sewell, that bon vivant among undertakers, steps again, though less compellingly, into a breach created by police ineptitude, this time on behalf of a winsome, waiflike, mysteriously missing nanny: sweet Sophie Pitts, so innocent and inoffensive you'd think she'd be scoundrel-proof.
