Waterstones Says

An outrageous ritualistic killing breaks through the petty bickering and parish politics of Champton in the deliciously witty and page-turning sequel to the bestselling Murder Before Evensong.

The sequel to the number one Sunday Times bestseller Murder Before Evensong.

Canon Daniel Clement is back...

It's been a few months since murder tore apart the community of Champton apart. As Canon Daniel Clement tries to steady his flock, the parish is joined with Upper and Lower Badsaddle, bringing a new tide of unwanted change.

But church politics soon become the least of Daniel's problems. His mother - headstrong, fearless Audrey - is obviously up to something, something she is determined to keep from him. And she is not the only one. And then all hell breaks loose when murder returns to Champton in the form of a shocking ritualistic killing...

MEDIA REVIEWS

The best of the new writers to have emerged from the "cosy crime" boom... with a pleasingly idiosyncratic, allusive style - Jake Kerridge, THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

It's proper Miss Marple territory... for an intelligent study of human nature that transports you to a tranquil church where a choir is singing Brother James's Air, it's unbeatable. - COUNTRY LIFE

The sequel to Murder Before Evensong is every bit as intriguing at the Rev Coles' debut... Nicely paced, this whodunnit will leave you on tenterhooks. - BELFAST TELEGRAPH

Great cosy crime. - THE I PAPER, Best Books for June

Gloriously astute on the details of village interactions... [this is] charming, cosy crime. - Alison Flood, OBSERVER

Full of intrigue, this is a thoroughly entertaining sequel. - Susan Watson, MY WEEKLY

A good holiday read, with much gentle humour peppered among the village characters. - Hannah Stephenson, INDEPENDENT

First-class entertainment but with more of an edge than most "cosy crime" books. - Jake Kerridge, DAILY MIRROR

Praise be!.. Fans still in withdrawal after Coles's withdrawal from Radio 4's Saturday Live can once again bask in his wit, wisdom and insight. - Rose Shepherd, SAGA MAGAZINE

A book to appreciate as well as enjoy. - Jeremy Black, THE CRITIC

Reverend Coles brings his unique touch of humour to the cosy crime genre... Full of wonderfully colourful and eccentric characters. - Sharon Reid, YOURS

Like all the best stories, this one is character-driven, and the characters are observed with an unflinching but mellow and humorous eye. - Caroline Chartres, CHURCH TIMES

PRAISE FOR MURDER BEFORE EVENSONG'Cosy crime with a cutting edge' Sunday Telegraph'Even better than I knew it would be' India Knight, Sunday Times'I've been waiting for a novel with vicars, rude old ladies, murder and sausage dogs ... et voila!' Dawn French'Charming and funny' Observer'Whodunnit fans can give praise and rejoice' Ian Rankin
