Susan Davies is a successful executive married to her 'bit of rough' - Jack the local garage mechanic. But
now Jack is fed up of being the 'kept man'. He'd like to break with Susan, but he doesn't want to lose the
lifestyle … or his mistress, Margaret.
Then, Susan has a fatal 'accident' in her newly repaired car.
Susan doesn't take well to being a ghost. She has to share a cold graveyard with the loud-mouthed Alice
(who was burned as a witch in 1647) and the prim miss, Harriett (stabbed to death, 1884). She hates
being kept prisoner by some invisible barrier that, apparently, the three of them cannot pass through. And
why won't Alice and Harriet accept that the car crash was just an accident?
The trouble is that if Susan can't be 'reconciled' to her murder soon, she will be dragged off to spend the
rest of eternity in the Sea of Lost Souls, something that both Alice and Harriett fear more than anything.
They must convince Susan that she was murdered before the 'things' come to take her away.
The proof lies beyond the graveyard and they are unable to get to it until Alice confesses she has found a
way round the barrier, a way to visit the living and hear their conversations. Can she take Susan there to
