Max Tudor—Anglican priest, former MI5 agent, and village heartthrob—is investigating two deaths at Chedrow Castle. But his growing attraction to Awena Owen complicates his case, as does the recent arrival at Chedrow Castle of a raucous group of long-lost, greedy relatives, any one of whom has a motive for murder...
"Agatha Christie fans will relish Malliet’s delicious second Max Tudor novel. [...] Clever deduction and a logical fair-play solution are enhanced by the author’s wry humor." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"This series shines for its wit, well-drawn characters, pitch-perfect dialog, and intricately structured puzzle. [...] For Louse Penny fans, of course, but also for those who crave a well-done Golden Age-style mystery." -Library Journal (starred review)
