Product description


‘He plots a mystery as well as any writer alive’
Time Magazine

‘Barnard never disappoints. The psychological suspense is chilling’
The Times

‘Robert Barnard retails this finely suspenseful tale, incorporating the Hitchockian awkwardness of disposing of a body, with spellbinding step-by-step matter-of-factness’
Sunday Times

From the Back Cover

"Barnard never disappoints."

Investigative journalist Cosmo Horrocks is over the moon. This was the juiciest story he's had in years. It seems to have everything: religion – the man was a Catholic priest; sex – he's accused of impropriety with a teenage unmarried mother; money – he's thought to have channelled parish funds in her direction. All the story lacks is mystery – that is until events take a deadly turn leaving Cosmo completely out of his depth.

The parish of St. Catherine's in Shipley is torn apart by the scandal, and by the secretive processes of its investigation which reveal dysfunctional families, shady doings in high places, and the brittle shell that respectability hides itself behind. When the truth is finally learned about Pardoe's supposed sins, and about the murder which they have brought in their wake, both parish and town have the wraps whipped away from their apparently happy and respectable existence.

"The style of writing is smooth – the characters interesting"
