Synopsis of book»

Life in the clergy is quiet, respectful, peaceful - or so Callie Anson believed when she began her new job as curate to Reverend Brian Stanford at All Saints' church in Paddington. Little did she realise just how wrong she could be.

After the traumatic end of her relationship with fiancé Adam, the last thing Callie needs is any more emotional turmoil. But it seems she is not destined for a quiet life just yet. Knowing that women in the clergy are still looked down upon by some, Callie was prepared to face some criticism. But the deep-seated hatred shown by some of her respected male colleagues particularly Father Adimola takes her by surprise. But when he is found strangled to death and her mentor Frances is accused of the crime, Callie must call upon all her faith to steer her through such troubling and violent times. With DI Stuart Neville and DS Mark Lombardi leading the investigation, it is not long before the ugly truth behind the ecclesiastical façade is chipped away to reveal the hidden secrets of the clergy.

'This book really makes you think about the issues facing the church today. It has a well constructed plot and characters you empathize with. And just when you think that you have figured out who did it, prepare to be shocked.'The Hunts Post
