Only managed to listen for 40 mins, as so disappointed at the use of bad language. Such a pity to spoil what promised to be a good story. Have listened and enjoyed The Merchant's Partner and A Moorland Hanging, but the strong language in The Mad Monk of Gidleigh and this Chapel of Bones were not for me.

This was something of a surprise, being set in England this time. A good story read by a great narrator.
