Publisher's Summary

England, 1810. Young Parson Tobias Campion is excited to be starting at the small parish of Moreton St Jude's. But his first night in the village brings excitement of the wrong kind when he has to intervene in the attempted rape of housemaid Lizzie Woodman.

Even in the normal course of events, village life is far from quiet, and soon Tobias has to deal with suspicious deaths. Matters come to a head when Lizzie disappears from her employers' home. What has become of the girl and who is responsible? As Tobias searches for answers, he finds himself delving into the dark secrets that haunt Lizzie's past.

    "Agatha Christie meets Jane Austen"

    Dirty work ahead and the Parson and the Doctor team up to bring the evildoer to justice. It canters to a wholly predictable conclusion (Oh c'mon! who else could have done it?), with every clue solved and every loose end neatly ravelled. That said, it is beautifully read and very well written despite rather overdoing the early nineteenth century slang. Enjoyable, if slightly mindless, entertainment, ideal perhaps, for a long journey when you don't want to have to concentrate too hard.

    "Compelling Historical Crime Fiction"

    I bought this on a bit of a whim and was wonderfully surprised by the quality of the story. The characters and the relationships between them are beautifully drawn. The details of the crime are unfolded slowly through a some interesting detection. And, finally, the narrator is one of the best I have ever heard. It was a pleasure to listen to him. Highly recommended.
