A Feast of Fools,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Psychiatrist, Screams (Abbot Peter Mysteries Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
A Psychiatrist, Screams (Abbot Peter Mysteries). Murder most foul in Henry House: The Feast of Fools dominates this gripping follow-up to Abbot Peter's first-solved crime in "A Vicar, Crucified". Set in dark, forbidding Henry House in the south of England, this is an appropriate place for dark deeds among a group of psychotherapists. A varied cast of professionals, clients, staff and others in this newly-opened establishment, Mind Gains, vie for supremacy or find love and affection.
Meanwhile, Abbot Peter and his niece and colleague, Chief Inspector Tamsin Shah, are on the trail of the person who killed hard-working psychiatrist, Barnabus Hope. We meet again the smarmy, insincere Martin Channing, editor of The Sussex Silt, a spoof of, well, who knows which real English newspaper this could possibly be lampooning?
The characters and events in modern-day England are skilfully woven together in an unforgettable tale of murder and unbridled mayhem, and love.
Interspersed between sections of this up-to-date story are exciting chapters telling the true story of Hafiz, the 14th century Persian Sufi poet. The link between the two concurrent narratives gradually becomes clear.
