Product description


Cunningly plotted, scary and darkly funny . . . the dialogue crackles as crisply as ever. (Church Times)

Abbot Peter is a true original. (Daily Mail)

To a long list of much-loved detective pairings, which includes Holmes and Watson, Poirot and Hastings, and Morse and Lewis, we must now add Abbot Peter and Tamsin Shah. (Church Times)

He is a brilliant creation. Clever. Rounded. Articulate and real. It may take a few years for him to be accepted as one of the greats. But . . . he will be. (Tim Hastie-Smith, National Director of Scripture Union)

The characters that Parke pens are convincing, and the dialogue is rich and entertaining. (The Revd Professor Nicolas Goulding Church Times)

[Reviews of earlier Abbot Peter mysteries, A Director's Cut (2014), A Psychiatrist Screams (2013) and A Vicar Crucified (2013, all DLT)]: Highly original . . . very different from most detective stories (Clerical Detectives)

An engrossing page-turning thriller, propelling the reader through its multiple twists and turns and keeping one guessing until the final unpredictable - yet satisfying - denouement. (Irish Independent)

A nicely plotted, swiftly paced yarn, full of teases . . . Parke evokes the creepiness of the setting marvellously. He has a stunning ear for the way people actually speak, with pages of uninterrupted dialogue flashing by with the speed of a radio play. (Church Times)

Book Description

Sleuthing couple DI Tamsin Shah and her unusual cleric uncle battle to solve a murder mystery that reveals dark secrets from Abbot Peter's tempestuous student years . . .
