Former MI5 agent-turned-Anglican priest Max Tudor probes a pair of killings in Malliet's latest offering (after Wicked Autumn, 2011). Max, now the vicar of St. Edwold's in Nether Monkslip, is asked by an old cop friend to investigate the murders. Lord Footrustle and his sister Lady Baynard have both been found dead at Chedrow Castle. With the Christmas season in full swing, Max's investigation is made even more complicated by the influx of visitors at the Castle. Could one of the victims' relatives have arrived with murder on their mind? A delightful cozy.
