Out-of-control relatives cause a deadly ruckus in Max´s placid parish!
When nearby Chedrow Castle is the scene of suspicious events, former MI5 agent-turned-priest Max Tudor must put aside his job guarding the souls of his small flock and turn his attention to solving a baffling case of murder. A raucous group of long lost, greedy relatives of Lord Footrustle and Lady Baynard have recently arrived at the castle, and each and every one of them could be the killer. . .
Meanwhile, Max´s attraction to a local lady complicates everything as he struggles to pit his own contradictory impulses against the cunning guile of a sophisticated murderer.
