Tails from the Crypt. . .
Meg Langslow got a lot more then she bargained for when she agreed to take care of the toucan her friend, the Rev. Robyn Smith, is fostering at her church. One night, after bird duty, Meg hears the sound of hammering in the columbarium, where cremated remains are held. . .only to find an elderly parishioner lying dead in the crypt. The man was well-known around town, having become disgruntled with the church over the handling of his wife’s ashes. But what was he doing in the columbarium on this very night—and who had it in for him? Now it’s up to Meg to lead the investigation into the murder, the motive, and a long-buried Caerphilly mystery that seems to involve the toucan itself. . .
