Two years ago, Harper tried to find little Tabitha Morgenstern, whose body lies on top of the older corpse. Neither the police, nor Harper and Tolliver, think it's a coincidence that she's the one to find her. The police suspect Harper was involved in the girl's death, while Harper and Tolliver try to uncover the truth in their own fashion. But finding a third body tossed into the now open grave is not going to help their case at all. (BERKLEY prime crime, Oct., 304 pp., $23.95)
