Bone Idle | [Suzette A Hill]

Bone Idle

This is the third novel featuring the Rev Oughterard, vicar of St Botolph's and genteel murderer of parishioner Mrs Elizabeth Fotherington. So far eluding arrest (but with fears of imminent exposure), he is in the grasp of his blackmailing pal, the shady Nicholas Ingaza, who forces him to steal a valuable figurine of a prancing pig from collector Claude Blenkinsop. Naturally the project backfires and the hapless vicar is plunged into further skulduggery during which someone is murdered.

Publisher's Summary

This is the third novel featuring the Rev Oughterard, vicar of St Botolph's and genteel murderer of parishioner Mrs Elizabeth Fotherington. So far eluding arrest (but with fears of imminent exposure), he is in the grasp of his blackmailing pal, the shady Nicholas Ingaza, who forces him to steal a valuable figurine of a prancing pig from collector Claude Blenkinsop. Naturally the project backfires and the hapless vicar is plunged into further skulduggery during which someone is murdered.

The Rev's despairing efforts to distance himself from the crime and additional police interest lead to embarrassing complications both for himself and his bishop, the pompous Horace Clinker. Things come to a head when Oughterard's own life is put at risk. Once again it is up to his world-weary cat, Muarice and intrepid mongrel, Bouncer, to save the Reverend's bacon.

    "More laughs with Francis, Maurice and Bouncer."

    Same but different to the marvellous A Load of Old Bones - Simon Hurst on fine form again as the poor old Rev, the author herself gives us an excellent sardonic, laconic Maurice and good old Bouncer is a bit of a scene stealer. The 'Brighton-type' plays a large part in the shenanigans and Clinker et al make their appearances to great comic effect. More please!
