Inhaltsangabe: Phoebe Britton dies in a climbing "accident" in the Swiss Alps, which does nothing to slow her husband Aiden's seemingly inevitable march towards 10 Downing Street.
After the funeral, Phoebe's cosmopolitan sister Rosamund Sholto realises just how far her brother-in-law will go to secure what he considers to be his political destiny and that includes an elaborate and lethal cover-up of events as a Cambridge student twenty years before. Fearing that she may soon be attending her own funeral, Rosamund goes on the run, but the powerful Aiden soon has the police, the press, the security services and his own private army of bully-boys on her trail.
Rosamund's only ally is feisty and resourceful archaeologist Tamara Hoyland and between them the two women have to avoid capture, uncover some gruesome secrets from the past and then confront the UK's Prime Minister in waiting.
Funeral Sites is Jessica Mann's updated, feminist take on John Buchan's classic The 39 Steps and the first of her novels to feature her most famous heroine Tamara Hoyland. On publication, Reginald Hill described the tale of flight and pursuit as being "in true Buchanesque style" and Publishers Weekly called it "a thriller that connoisseurs will agree is unputdownable".
