Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. By what miracle can an assortment of seemingly unrelated particles come together and correctly assemble to form a human being? Amazingly, once aggregated, these atoms, molecules, and compounds manage to interact reasonably coherently during our lives but seek to return to their dusty state when death occurs. Of the billions of our species who have existed on earth over the millennia, most have quietly and inexorably returned to ashes and dust when their term of life expired. This book tracks some of the misadventures of selected corpses, including burials that went awry to body snatching, exhumations, human-relic collection, and assorted desecrations. Over the years, it seems that a remarkable number of bodies have failed to enjoy the admonition to “Rest in Peace.” Whether these aberrations in the burial process have disturbed the afterlife of the departed, everyone is dying to discover the answer.

Alex Faversham dreams of rebellion and longs to break away from her comfortable background. And so a chance visit from her aunt fires her determination to escape. At the age of nineteen Alex sets out to find the exciting destiny she yearns for in Italy.

The heady glitter of imperial Vienna in the years before the First World War is as alluring as Alex had dreamed. Here she finds romance with Karl von Winkler, a hussar in the Emperor's guard. But like the Hapsburg Empire their love cannot last and as she finds herself away from home on the brink of war, will Alex ever see England or her family again . . .?
