Murder Before Evensong

The new witty gem of a mystery series that British readers have already savored has landed in the Unite States. Murder Before Evensong introduces Canon Clement, a rector in the small parish of Champton St. Mary, who is doing his best to tend the small group of souls under his care. When he announces plans to install a lavatory in the back of the church, which would necessitate the removal of a couple of pews, he catches holy hell. Why do these pews matter so much, he wonders?  Could they possibly be connected to the murders of two parishioners supportive of the seemingly benign renovation? I relished following Clement, his mother, Audrey, their two dachshunds, and a host of other wonderfully odd characters in their search for the truth. Himself a rector, Richard Coles has created a detective I hope we see far more of in Canon Clement. Recommended by Kelly
