Evil Angels Among Them
Fortunately for Father Stephen Thorncroft, he is able to enlist the help of his friends Lucy Kingsley and David Middleton-Brown to unravel the tangled relationships and uncover the dark motivations of the villagers. As the investigation proceeds, they stumble on more than they’d bargained for. But it is not until a little girl goes missing that the final, deadly pieces fall into place in their search for the ‘evil angels among them’.

· [Kate Charles’s] love certainly does not blind her to the failing of church members . . . betrayal of trust, malicious gossip, petty thievery and blackmail; but the author’s delicious sense of humour and compassion make this a narrative that is far from depressing.
