Waterstones Scottish Book of the Month for September 2022
Death is not the end. For Grace McGill, it's only the beginning.
When people die alone and undiscovered, it's her job to clean up what's left behind - whether it's clutter, bodily remains or dark secrets.
When an old man lies undetected in his flat for months, it seems an unremarkable life and an unnoticed death. But Grace knows that everyone has a story and that all deaths mean something more.
A stand-out novel with a unique narrative voice and an unguessable mystery, you are guaranteed to remember Grace McGill.
