Description



About the Book



After he is accused of murdering his rival, the awful Farold, Selwyn is sealed in the burial cave with Farold's corpse. A witch offers escape, and she brings Farold back from the dead in the form of a bat. Selwyn's left with no choice but to join forces with his worst enemy to find the real murderer.



Book Synopsis



When Selwyn is accused of murdering his rival, Farold, he is sealed in the village burial cave with Farold's moldering corpse to await starvation--or worse. Worse comes along quickly in the form of a witch who raises Farold from the dead. Selwyn thought he disliked Farold when he was alive, but that was nothing compared to working by the dead man's side as they search for the real killer.
