Finally, ANOTHER Brother Athelstan mystery from one of my favorite historical mystery writers! Paul Doherty has picked up the series once again and once again this lovable friar finds himself at the crossroads of saving his beloved parish members of St. Erconwald! It's Christmas and he and his members are preparing their mystery play. Alas, the play's the thing, whereby he captures the conscience of the murderer! It's a series of nasty murders but who better to sort them out! Doherty fans will warmly welcome this return. It's a nice Christmas present!
