The Blurb On The Back:
Canon Daniel Clement is Rector of Champton. He has been there for eight years, living at the rectory alongside his widowed mother – opinionated, fearless, occasionally annoying Audrey – and his two dachshunds, Cosmo and Hilda.
When Daniel announces a plan to install a lavatory in the church, the parish is suddenly (and unexpectedly) divided: as lines are drawn, long-buried secrets come dangerously close to destroying the apparent calm of the village.
And then Anthony Bowness – cousin to Bernard de Flores, patron of Champton – is found dead at the back of the church, stabbed in the neck with a pair of secateurs.
As the police move in and the bodies start piling up, Daniel is the only one who can try and keep his fractured community together … and catch a killer.
