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.
The best of the new writers to have emerged from the "cosy crime" boom... with a pleasingly idiosyncratic, allusive style
First-class entertainment but with more of an edge than most "cosy crime" books.
Like all the best stories, this one is character-driven, and the characters are observed with an unflinching but mellow and humorous eye.
Full of intrigue, this is a thoroughly entertaining sequel.
A book to appreciate as well as enjoy.
Gloriously astute on the details of village interactions... [this is] charming, cosy crime.
Reverend Coles brings his unique touch of humour to the cosy crime genre... Full of wonderfully colourful and eccentric characters.
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.
Great cosy crime.
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.
A good holiday read, with much gentle humour peppered among the village characters.
