Publisher's Summary

'Small hostilities were growing; vague jealousies were gaining strength; and far off, wasn't there a nebulous hint of approaching tragedy in the air?'

Welworth Garden City in the 1940s is a forward-thinking town where free spirits find a home - vegetarians, socialists, and an array of exotic religious groups.

Chief among these are the Children of Osiris, led by the eccentric High Prophet, Eustace K. Mildmann. The cult is a seething hotbed of petty resentment, jealousy and dark secrets - which eventually lead to murder. The stage is set for one of Inspector Meredith's most bizarre and exacting cases.

This witty crime novel by a writer on top form is a neglected classic of British crime fiction.

    "It's quite dull, despite the great setting"

    Not sure why I keep reading Bude's books as they're all similar with their complicated plots, but dull telling. The solution is fairly unguessable but that might be because you actually don't really care any more.

    "Rubbish"

    I looked forward to the release of this book, having read all other Insp. Meredith books, and enjoyed them so much I was so disappointed, what a load of rubbish, it is as if someone else has written it, drivel from start to finish.
    Narration as usual Brilliant none better than Gordon Griffin

    Story
    "Excellent period piece"

    Lots of detective story writers of the Golden Age have set their tales within the cranky cults that flourished between the wars - G K Chesterton, Ngaio Marsh, even Chandler and Hammett in the US. This is a good example of the genre, a good story, a good listen, well narrated. It reflects attitudes of its time, but not too intrusively I think.
