Pelagia and the White Bulldog Summary

Sister Pelagia: bespectacled, freckled, red-haired, woefully clumsy and constantly knitting, teaches gymnastics and literature, and in her spare time, solves crimes. This hugely entertaining mystery introduces us to a heroine who is a cross between Miss Marple and one of Charlie's Angels. A prized white bulldog has been poisoned, and the Bishop of Zavolzhsk sends Pelagia to investigate the dog's death as a favour for his aunt. The investigation soon descends into something far more dastardly, involving stolen gold, betrayed women, untrustworthy lovers, and two headless bodies that are pulled out of the river on the edge of the estate.
