Summary

Who could kill a man of God? A fire breaks out in a chapel and DCI Warren Jones is alarmed by what is discovered at the scene.

Curled up in the ash and debris is a body – and it’s soon clear that the chapel doors were locked from the inside. The disappearance of a local priest, Father Nolan, and a cryptic note left in his room, point to an unusually violent suicide. But when further evidence confuses the picture, Warren begins to suspect foul play – and murder. Clearly, someone wanted this seemingly innocent man to suffer. And when a discovery on a quiet riverbank sends the investigation reeling, Warren knows he must act quickly to discover who is behind this spate of grisly deaths – before another man of God is found dead.

Don’t miss Paul Gitsham’s ingenious new DCI Warren Jones novel!

A reliable fantastic read

Another remarkably excellent book with a fantastic. narrator. The nearer to the end the more breathtaking. I was late doing the dinner ...couldn't stop listening until I read her the wnd.

Sorry Paul Gitsham, I don't care for this one!

I have 'read' the other books in this series and liked them well enough. The characters are explained very well and there is some humour that I enjoyed, but if you can still get the gist of the overall story whilst fast forwarding through chapters, then you have a lot of non-essential verbage.

The minute details of police procedures may please others but I found it unnecessary and frankly boring.

This is pretty good,- interesting
characters, a fine surprise at the end, a comfortable tale set in
a deserted abby.

Pretty good

As with the other books in this series it was a slow start. Once the story gets going it was pretty good and I enjoyed it.
