Description
On a snowy Thursday morning during Lent in 1964, a stranger seeks sanctuary in Grantchester's church, convinced that he has murdered his wife, in James Runcie's fourth collection of cases for sleuthing clergyman Sidney Chambers—the inspiration for the hugely popular PBS Masterpiece series Grantchester. Here too, Sidney and his wife Hildegard go for a shooting weekend in the country and find their hostess has a sinister burn on her neck, and Sidney's friend Amanda receives poison-pen letters just as she appears to be finally approaching matrimony. A firm of removal men "accidentally" drops a grand piano on a musician's head outside a Cambridge college, while a group of schoolboys blows up their school Science Block. And on a family holiday in Florence, during the flooding of 1966, Sidney is accused of the theft of a priceless painting. Meanwhile, at home, Sidney's new curate Malcolm seems set to become rather irritatingly popular with the parish, Sidney's baby girl Anna learns to walk and talk, Hildegard longs to get an au pair, and Sidney is offered a promotion.

"The clerical milieu is well rendered as an affectionate eye is cast over post-war England—a perfect accompaniment to a sunny afternoon, a hammock and a glass of Pimm's."—Guardian (London)
