The sea, dark as the mouth of death, vomited up the body of retired Admiral George Edward Orkwright, dressed in nothing save his wife's underwear, and left him lying on the rocky shore near the town of Newton-Upon-Sea.


That's the opening paragraph of An Improper Death in which Dr. Alexandra Gladstone battles local authorities, morticians, and the gossip of the town in order to learn the truth about Admiral Orkwright, his death, and his enigmatic wife.
