The fourth Gil Cunningham murder mystery set in Medieval Glasgow. The warden of St Serf's has been found dead in the almshouse garden. He appears to have been killed on the previous night but there are those who are convinced he was present at that morning's service, The elderly residents, the almshouse nurse and Humphrey, her deranged favourite, have all been set against one another by the dead man's scheming - and then there is the discarded mistress and almshouse ghost to consider. Tracing the dead man's last movements between the Cathedral precinct and the shores of the Clyde, Gil Cunningham is both helped and hindered by his two sisters who have come to Glasgow for his wedding to Alys. An uncanny event followed by the arrival of Gil's godfather, precipitates the crisis. Finally, it is Alys who helps Gil identify the warden's killer.
Like her protaganist Gil Cunnigham, Pat MacInstosh is a graduate of Glasgow University, She lived and worked in Glasgow before settling on Scotland's West Coast.

another good book from pat McIntosh. near the end I thought I knew who had done the murders and was right.. its not often I get it right.
alys doesn't help gil very much in this one as she is busy but we do meet two more of gil's sisters. I liked Humphrey one of the almshouse residents.
once more Andrew Watson did a good job of performing the book.
