The discovery of a murdered Japanese tourist in a Bath pub appears to be just another complication in Sara Selkirk's life. Her developing relationship with DCI Andrew Poole is under enough strain already, ever since she brought her former teacher Joyce Cruikshank under her roof. Not to mention her dog Pretzel. Sara seems to have found the perfect solution when she finds a job for Joyce at a private health clinic where her distinguished pianist friend James Ballantyne is a reluctant patient. The Sulis Clinic, combining naturopathy, modern medicine, creative therapies and the beautiful surroundings of the historic spa town of Bath, enjoys a remarkable success rate. So why isn't James getting any better? And where is Joyce slipping off to every day? As Sara delves into the mysteries surrounding the clinic, one thing becomes clear: Pretzel the Dachshund isn't the only one in danger.

'Morag Joss gets better with each book. FRUITFUL BODIES finds her sympathetic heroine, cellist Sara Selkirk, preparing to record the Dvorak cello concerto [when] things turn out to be not quite as they appear. But there can be no uncertainty about the high quality of the writing and the plotting.' -- Donna Leon 20011010 'Nothing is as straightforward as it seems which makes this a hugely satisfying read as the threads are slowly unravelled.' -- Evening Mail 20011010 'A literate and surprisingly lyrical read, as well as a mesmerising thriller.' -- What's On, Birmingham 20011010
