Walking with her Dog Watson, Shirley discovers a skeleton on a field. After Reporting it, she gets suspicious when the coroner Dr. Estelle Lamb denies the presence of a ring on the skeleton hand although she clearly knows there was one.

Whilst trying to solve this puzzle, Shirley gets the feeling that Dr. Lamb - who's promisingly running for mayor - is hiding something since she is openly tries to get her away from the case. Upon discovering that she intentionally misidentified the skeleton there's no holding back for Shirley (then again, was there ever ?). Identifying the skeleton herself she gets into a case of a murder which never was and a big cover-up of an error which led to a wrong conviction.
