This book is one of a set being organised as bookrays for attendees of the 2011 UK BookCrossing Unconvention in Nottingham in September. The aim is to allow as many attendees as possible to read the speaker authors' books before the event.

Full details of the Bookray participants for this book can be found on the Uncon website here.

The following rules apply:

1) Please check the website for the most up to date reader list just before sending the book on. The order of the rays may be tweaked a little bit as we go on, dependent on availability of readers. Contact the next reader via PM (or other means) in plenty of time so that you can get the book moving again as soon as possible.

2) If you're contacted about receiving one of the books but aren't able to commit to reading it at that time, please ask to be moved to a later point in the list so that the books keep moving as much as possible, and let me know so I can update the webpage accordingly.

3) Enjoy the books!!

I finished this a few days ago and keep forgetting to journal it.
Another fantastic mystery story - I particularly liked the beginning of this one as it took me back to my student days in Sheffield!
Posted off to its next reader this morning.

This arrived during the week but I've only managed to pick it up from the post office today. Good timing though, I can start it straight away.

I love reading about places I know but in this book I jumped at the mention of the caves under Nottingham Castle. I'm planning on visiting them the Friday befor the Uncon. This is another great story from Stephen Booth. In my own morbid way, I loved the description of the embalming processes. There were a couple of surprises there. I'm also pleased Diane seems a little more human towards Ben this time.

Thank you, a lovely surprise! I'm reading One Last Breath at the minutes, so I suppose nothing will get done today. Really good.

I'm hooked! Even more so, having heard the charming Stephen Booth's presentation at the Nottingham UnCon. I became slightly depressed by the takes on death, but the ending lifted my spirits out of the doldrums.

Thanks Cross Patch - received safely in Leeds! I feel a bit awash wiht Stephen Booth at the moment having read four on the trot. I though he was lovely too - very modest and down to earth. I'll try to read this as soon as possible and get it moving on.
