Max Tudor honed his mental and physical reflexes as an MI5 agent...but he’s left that life far behind, and now he’s an Anglican priest in the quaint English village of Nether Monkslip. Still, his training stands him in good stead when there’s a mystery to solve. Case in point: Chedrow Castle, the estate of Oscar, Lord Footrustle. Soon after Milo the butler finds Oscar’s dead body, the lord’s sister and heiress, Leticia, also expires—but not before she has a fortuitous run-in with Max. When Max uses his clerical credentials to insinuate himself into castle life—ostensibly to officiate at the burials—he uncovers a greedy, feuding family, motive upon motive, an endless array of opportunities and danger around every dank corner.
