Modesty de Mise is dead set on saving the local cemetery from developers. It's right next to where she lives, above her parents' business -- a funeral parlour! And as if that isn't bad enough, things start to look grave when teen-mobster Harley 'halitosis' Spinks turns up to arrange some gangster funerals after a failed diamond robbery. And she's also in cahoots with the developers! When hunky Oz Appleby turns up again after four years away, Modesty thinks she's found an ally at last -- but why would anyone want to date an undertaker's daughter? Modesty's got to act fast, or her plans to beat the gangsters will go six feet under. But if her parents discover any of this, she'll be dead meat !
