THE NEW NOVEL FROM THE NO.1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF MURDER BEFORE EVENSONG

CANON DANIEL CLEMENT IS BACK…


It’s been a few months since murder tore apart the community of Champton apart. As Canon Daniel Clement tries to steady his flock, the parish is joined with Upper and Lower Badsaddle, bringing a new tide of unwanted change. But church politics soon become the least of Daniel’s problems. His mother – headstrong, fearless Audrey – is obviously up to something, something she is determined to keep from him. And she is not the only one. And then all hell breaks loose when murder returns to Champton in the form of a shocking ritualistic killing…

Reviews

The sequel to Murder Before Evensong is every bit as intriguing at the Rev Coles' debut... Nicely paced, this whodunnit will leave you on tenterhooks.
BELFAST TELEGRAPH
The best of the new writers to have emerged from the "cosy crime" boom... with a pleasingly idiosyncratic, allusive style
Jake Kerridge, THE DAILY TELEGRAPH
First-class entertainment but with more of an edge than most "cosy crime" books.
Jake Kerridge, DAILY MIRROR
A book to appreciate as well as enjoy.
Jeremy Black, THE CRITIC
Gloriously astute on the details of village interactions... [this is] charming, cosy crime.
Alison Flood, OBSERVER
Reverend Coles brings his unique touch of humour to the cosy crime genre... Full of wonderfully colourful and eccentric characters.
Sharon Reid, YOURS
It's proper Miss Marple territory... for an intelligent study of human nature that transports you to a tranquil church where a choir is singing Brother James's Air, it's unbeatable.
COUNTRY LIFE
Great cosy crime.
THE I PAPER, Best Books for June
Praise be!.. Fans still in withdrawal after Coles's withdrawal from Radio 4's Saturday Live can once again bask in his wit, wisdom and insight.
Rose Shepherd, SAGA MAGAZINE
A good holiday read, with much gentle humour peppered among the village characters.
Hannah Stephenson, INDEPENDENT
Full of intrigue, this is a thoroughly entertaining sequel.
Susan Watson, MY WEEKLY
Like all the best stories, this one is character-driven, and the characters are observed with an unflinching but mellow and humorous eye.
