A clerical conundrum,
This review is from: Sidney Chambers and The Shadow of Death (The Grantchester Mysteries) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
What a super start to a new mystery series.
Canon Sidney Chambers is a joy. Charming,insightful, gentle and intriguing - and with that knack for subtly effective meddling that the very best clerics have in spades.
I confess that when I started to read the book, I assumed that it was an entire novel & not novella's But that does not detract from this accomplished book.
Each of the six mysteries reveal more of Sidney's character & relationships with some very deft chracterisations, and just the right amount of wit to satisfy this reader.
The prose is lovely,and there are some wonderful philosophical musings contained within this entertaining book.
I really am looking forward to seeing how Sidney's life in the Church and involvement in crime develop over the remaing five books.
