Summary

St. Benet's is a gripping crime thriller, the second in a chilling series of serial killer books, ones which will rapidly convert followers of Faith Martin, Joy Ellis and Damien Boyd into David Blake devotees.  

When the body of an old man is found lying in the ruins of St Benet’s Abbey, his throat cut, a knife resting in his open hand, DI John Tanner and DC Jenny Evans are given no choice but to accept a ruling of death by misadventure. 

But when the body goes missing from its tomb, after a priest is found nailed to a cross, and another impaled on a stake, everything begins to point back to the murder of a teenage girl, thrown from the top of a church tower, some 43 years before. 

Set within the mysterious beauty of the Norfolk Broads, this fast-paced British detective series is a murder mystery with a slice of humour and a touch of romance, one that will have you guessing until the very end.

Great second book in the series

Every writer speaks of how difficult the second book in a series is to write. I so enjoyed the first book and hoped this next book
would be able to pick up the flow of the first book and David Blake has done so. The narration is so good which is needed if a new series is to succeed. I have read the third book on kindle but now want to listen to it read by Jonathan Keeble.

Enjoyable read

Good second novel in this series with plenty of suspense and some twists in the tale. Recommended especially if you know the Broads.

Gripping!

Although very graphic I found this book irresistible , and listened in two sessions! With a twist in the tail , an old crime was avenged, and the culprit a surprise till the last few pages! Will look for others by this author

One more

I am really enjoying this series. But I believe there's 1 more book That I have to read. Which I'm not happy about at all. This is a bit more humorous then the last Seems I can't get enough of it I hate to see it end I hope you keep Writing more. I made wait a little bit to see if it comes in audio Because the acting In it is absolutely wonderful. Definitely recommend It's a fun Humorous Mystery twist and turns Love it.
